Blueberry Muffins

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a muffin pan with paper baking cups
  • Whisk dry ingredients together.  Use a fork to break up any clumps in the almond flour/meal.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk the wet ingredients together.
  • Combine dry and wet ingredients in one bowl and gently fold in 1 1/4 c. blueberries.
  • Fill muffin cups 3/4 full; top each with the pumpkin seeds and the extra blueberries.
  • Bake 25-30 minutes until tops are a deep golden brown (the muffins are done when you insert a toothpick and it comes out clean).

Notes

*Toasted Nuts and Seeds:

Buy nuts and seeds raw.  Spread them out on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.  Pop this into a 325 degree oven for approximately 15 minutes until the nuts or seeds are fragrant but not burnt.
