Made with almond flour, these muffins are an easy way to add grain-free baking to your kitchen. You can easily find almond flour in most grocery stores now, but make sure you buy the finely ground variety as it works best for baking.

WHAT IS A PALEO BAKING RECIPE?

In paleo baking you want to replace all white grain flours and refined sugars in the recipe with healthy alternatives. Use flours made with nuts like almonds or cashew ,or flours like coconut, tapioca or arrowroot starch. Replace refined sugar with honey, maple syrup, dates or, one of my favourites, Swerve sweetener made with erythritol.

I’m a huge fan of muffins and one of the first recipes I tried to make when I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease was a gluten-free version. My early attempts were not very good, but with perseverance I’m thankful that I can now easily whip up a batch of gluten-free muffins from one of the many recipes on the blog.

In the morning I like to have a muffin with my soy earl grey tea latte. It is a great way to start my day. If you are a muffin fan you’ve come to the right place for inspiration. Today I am sharing a gluten-free, grain-free, dairy and refined-sugar-free muffin recipe. What I didn’t leave out of the muffin was great TASTE by the way!

Pumpkin Walnut Cookie

Pumpkin Walnut Cookie Recipe

It is November so I am working on new holiday cookie recipes and these pumpkin walnut cookies will be a hit for your family. They are also lower in sugar then most of my recipes for I used Swerve sweetener in them.

I love to bake but I am also very aware that we should be watching how much sugar we have in our diets. Gluten free flours have a higher carb content then regular white flour so I am looking for ways to cut back a bit on the sugar in my recipes.
