Paleo Lemon Lavender Coconut Muffins! Gluten Free, Dairy Free Delights!

Sometimes I just want a muffin! But, my body, like many bodies, doesn't generally do well on processed grains. Here's a quick and easy healthy muffin recipe. Enjoy! Recipe makes about 6 muffins. 


LIQUID INGREDIENTS
3 Eggs (I use duck eggs)
2 Tbsp Ghee or Coconut Oil, melted
2 Tbsp Coconut milk
1 Tbsp Honey or Maple Syrup (or substitute with a few drops of stevia for sugar free diets)
1/2 - 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1/2 Tbsp Lavender (or more, if stronger flavor is desired) 
1 Tbsp Lemon zest (or more, if stronger flavor is desired) 

DRY INGREDIENTS
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/4 tsp baking powder (add to liquid mix - see directions)

COOKING DIRECTIONS:
1. Preheat over to 400 degrees. Grease or line muffin cups with paper liners. 
2. Whisk eggs, ghee, coconut milk, honey, salt and vanilla extract together in a howl until smooth. Stir in lemon zest. 
3. Mix coconut flour, baking powder and lavender together in a separate bowl. Then, stir dry mixture into liquid mixture until batter is combined. Pour batter into prepared muffin cups. 
4. Bake in the preheated oven at 400 degrees about 15 - 20 minutes, until the old 'toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin' trick comes out clean. 

bon appétit!
