Blueberry Streusel Muffins – GF

These really remind me of the blueberry streusel cake I used to make based on Ina Garten’s recipe. My sprouted flour version (not GF) is here:  http://momsforsafefood.net/2010/05/24/sprouted-flour-blueberry-crumb-cake/

I’m going to try these as a cake next, baking 40-50 minutes, although I like the muffins cause I only eat one at a time. J  These are based on muffins by Maria Emmerich, from one of my favorite cookbooks, Low Carbing Among Friends, Volume 2 – link below.

Muffin Ingredients:

2 cups organic almond flour. (blanched if you want a lighter muffin)

1 tsp. aluminum-free baking powder

¼ tsp Celtic sea salt

3 organic, pastured eggs

½ cup organic pastured butter, melted – you can also use coconut oil

½ cup Sucanat or stevia equalivent (usually ½ tsp)

2 tlbs. organic fresh lemon juice

2 tlbs. organic unsweetened almond milk

1 tsp. organic vanilla extract

½ tsp. stevia or ½ cup equivalent

½ cup frozen or fresh blueberries

 

Struesel Topping Ingredients:

½ cup organic almond flour

2 tlbs. coconut flour

2 tlbs sucanat or stevia equal

1 tsp. cinnamon

2 tlbs. pastured butter, melted

2 tlbs. unsweetened almond milk

¼ tsp stevia or ¼ cup equivalent

Preheat over to 325° F. Grease or line your muffin tins.

In a large bowl, mix almond flour, baking powder and salt. In another bowl mix eggs, butter, sweetener, lemon juice, almond milk, vanilla and stevia. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir until just combined. Fold in the berries gently. And split batter among the 12 muffin tins.

For the topping: In a small bowl, mix first four ingredients together. Then add the melted butter, almond milk and stevia. Stir, to form a crumb like topping. Sprinkle over muffins.

Bake 30 minutes or until light brown. Enjoy!
