so, I finally decided to enter into the baking sphere. paleo, that is. I bought some coconut and almond flour and decided to give it a try. since I have a bunch of blueberries in the freezer, I thought that blueberry muffins would be a good place to start. so I searched some recipes and found one that called for ingredients I had on hand, and was JUST blueberry muffins. found a lot of banana-blueberry muffins and the like, but I wanted straight blueberry. so I went for it. I was a little skeptical as I was mixing it up. even though it called for 3 eggs and a 1/4 cup of honey, it seemed very short of liquid. but the comments on this recipe mentioned how good and moist they were… so I figured maybe it would all ‘bond’ when baking and all would be good.
as you can see, these are not exactly ‘muffins’. they are more like a ‘crumble’ of sorts and I’m a little bit at a loss as to how we’re going to eat them. maybe put it in a bowl and pour a little coconut milk over them. maybe I invented some new cereal! who knows.
at any rate, I have no idea what happened. maybe they left out an ingredient when they posted the recipe or the measurement of the flour was posted wrong. who knows.
I did try a muffin. my hunch was correct about them being like a crumble. a VERY good crumble, actually. I dumped the muffin over in a small bowl and poured just a tad of coconut milk over it. it was delicious!!!! in fact, after finishing that one, I rinsed my bowl and spoon, and put them in the dishwasher. about 15 minutes later, I walked into the kitchen, grabbed another bowl, another muffin, and did the same thing! YUM! I wouldn’t want it with a LOT of coconut milk on it because I think then it would be soggy, and I ate it pretty fast, to preserve the crunchy, nutty thing that was going on with it. seriously yummy. might even post the recipe, but NOT as a muffin recipe!
