Baking Paleo Strawberry Muffins



Just after Valentine’s Day, I couldn’t resist buying a huge ol’ tub of fresh strawberries at Costco. We had them with champagne, dipped them in chocolate and ate them on their own. But one day—probably because my neighbor Tina has been making all kinds of Paleo muffins recently and they are SO GOOD—I had the bright idea to use some of these pretty berries in muffins. And so off I went to the Google to find a recipe. There are surprisingly a lot of Paleo strawberry muffins recipes out there, but I settled on this one from Cook Eat Paleo.
I had pretty much everything on hand to make these Paleo strawberry muffins (love when that happens!), except I did sub the honey for some organic agave I had leftover from this Wholesome Sweeteners review. (And, yes, I’m still obsessed with the stuff.)
Mix the wet ingredients together…
Stir in the dry ingredients—almond flour, baking powder and salt—and then fold in diced fresh strawberries. I don’t know what it is about fresh strawberries in baked goods, but OMG, so good. So summery, despite the fact that it was 30 degrees out.
The recipe calls for a full-sized muffin pan, but I went with mini muffins. I’d like to say I like mini muffins for nobler reasons, but, really, it’s just because I find them cute. I didn’t have liners in my cabinet at the moment, so I sprayed the heck out of the pan with non-stick spray. It kind of, sorted worked. (If you try it, spring for the liners or be prepared to spend 15 minutes trying to get them out of the pan without too much Paleo-strawberry-muffin destruction.)
Baking at 350, these mini ones only took about 12 minutes to get nicely done.
After cooling and using my best knife-around-the-mini-muffin skills, here they were, ready for consumption. Fresh and oh-so buttery with a hint of vanilla and almond, these Paleo strawberry muffins were awesome. Not too sweet and not overly heavy. And you’d never, ever know that they were Paleo or gluten-free!
I’d totally make these Paleo strawberry muffins again! Do you have any favorite muffins recipes? Or fun ways to use up strawberries? Would love to hear about your baking adventures! —Jenn
