Ingredients & Substitutions
Replace butter with coconut oil for a dairy free option.
For the granulated sugar, use coconut sugar or white sugar. Maple sugar and date sugar can work if absolutely necessary.
I do not recommend trying to substitute another flour. Cassava flour is unique in its flavor, texture and purpose.
Any dairy free milk works! Do not use canned coconut milk due to its thickness. Coconut milk from a carton is a great nut free and dairy free option. Use almond milk or cashew milk if you don’t need these muffins to be nut free.
One large lemon provides enough zest and juice.
Use fresh blueberries for best results. Use frozen blueberries only if necessary. Thaw and squeeze out all excess liquid from berries before folding into batter.
Baking with Cassava Flour
Cassava flour is made from the dried and peeled cassava root. Its texture, flavor, and weight is similar to traditional white flour.
Since cassava flour is so unique compared to other Paleo and gluten free flours, I do not recommend substituting it.
