Grain-Free Paleo Blueberry Crumb Muffins

Sep 30, 2011 by

I had made this recipe a while back and sacked it away in my imaginary cookbook secret stash, but after making them for a few friends it’s been deemed they need to go live. Or there were some threats against life and limb. And pets. It was originally posted over at The Spunky Coconut as a guest post while she was having her baby. If you need any more grain-free “paleo” ideas like this, her cookbooks (The Spunky Coconut Cookbook) and website are full of amazing recipes!

Last time I made these, I fiddled around with the recipe and made paleo blueberry cake donut holes – dense little balls of goodness (heh. I said “balls.” Yes. I’m 12).  I promise I’ll get that up soon. I have to make them again to double check the measurements but this recipe that started it all is just as awesome.

Yes, you have to use dried blueberries in this. Fresh or frozen will have too high of a moisture content for the recipe. Also, the chia seed meal adds a wonderful source of Omegas while also acting as an egg replacer. I haven’t made this solely without eggs or chia seed meal so I don’t know the exact ration exchange if you decide to do so.

    How could you substitute frozen blueberries for dried? Would you cut back on the liquid or increase flour?
