This just happened. Nothing like freshly baked Almond Coconut Blueberry Muffins that are not only low carb., but grain-free too.On June 3 I started on my new Low carb meal plan.  Wandering away from everything I learned about “eat what you want as long as it’s in moderation.” Today, I tried baking, for the first time since I removed sugars, grains, breads and starchy veggies from my diet. The longest EVER, in my whole life that I ever went without any of those items. Hodgson Mill sent me a sampling of some of their newest products to try. Nothing like freshly baked Almond Coconut Blueberry Muffins that are not only low carb., but grain-free too. I used coconut flour, almond meal and even a sugar-free honey to make these treats.  I ate one. Only one.  But I felt completely satisfied.  I never even knew that almond meal and coconut flour must be refrigerated after opening.  You learn something new every day. Lucky for me, Hodgson Mill sent me some of their newest products to try out.  These products arrived yesterday.  Wasting no time at all, today I baked. The longest ever. EVER, in my whole life that I ever went without any of those items. These were truly delicious.  And thanks to a some blueberry flavored almonds the crunchy topping was a perfect addition. It was fun baking with coconut flour.  Let’s see what else I can bake.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

  1. These sound so good. I am not crazy about coconut flour by itself, but I love the almond flour. This should be a good balance.
