Ingredients

  • 190 g blackberries fresh or frozen (or any other fruit)
  • 1 tbsp coconut flour

Dry Ingredients

Wet Ingredients

  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice or apple cider vinegar, white vinegar
  • 120 ml coconut cream from a chilled can of coconut milk (drain the coconut liquid, keep the cream)
  • 2 tbsp refined coconut oil or shortening, avocado oil, lard, ghee, butter
  • lemon zest
  • 3 eggs

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 180C/350F.
    Line the muffin pan with 12 muffin cups.
  • Mix the blackberries with the coconut flour.
  • In a large bowl, mix the dry ingredients together.
    In another large bowl, mix the wet ingredients together.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ones and mix everything together. The batter shouldn't be pourable, nor should it be too thick. It should be spoonable.
  • Add the blackberries to the batter and mix evenly. 
  • Spoon the muffin batter evenly into 12 muffin cups.  
    Place in the oven and bake for 35 minutes. Check with a toothpick after 35 minutes to see if the middle is still raw or not. The toothpick inserted in the middle should come out clean.  
  • Take the muffins out of the oven and let cool completely before serving.
  • To freeze them, simply wrap them in saran wrap or put them in a Ziploc bag.  
  • To thaw frozen muffins: transfer the frozen muffins into the fridge and let thaw a few hours, or put them on the counter and let thaw there a couple of hours.

Notes

*Note 1: For sweetener substitutions, please refer to the following:
  • 1/2 cup (8 tbsp) Sukrin Gold
  • 6 tbsp Lakanto Golden
  • 1/2 cup (8 tbsp) SoNourished Monk Fruit Blend
  • 1/2 cup (8 tbsp) Swerve (don't recommend as it leaves a huge aftertaste)
  • 1/2 cup (8 tbsp) erythritol+ 1/4 tsp stevia extract powder
  • 1/2 cup (8 tbsp) erythritol + 1/4 tsp monk fruit extract powder
For substitutions and tips:
  • Instead of lemon juice, you can use white vinegar or apple cider vinegar.  I chose lemon juice for the lemon flavour.
  • Instead of coconut cream, you can use sour cream.
  • Instead of coconut oil, you can use avocado oil, shortening, lard, butter or ghee.
  • Instead of almond flour, you can use any other type of nut flour.
  • Instead of blackberries, you can use any type of berries or fruit that you want.  Just remember to add the extra carbs to the nutritional information.
  • Make sure to use refined coconut oil and not extra-virgin coconut oil.  The extra-virgin kind tastes too much like coconut and it'll ruin the taste of the muffins!
  • Make sure to use coconut cream and not coconut milk!
  • Make sure to use muffin cups as the muffin batter tends to stick to muffin pans even when oiled.
  • Make sure to add the coconut flour or the blackberry muffin batter will be too wet.
