Ingredients for Flourless Blueberry Muffins
ALMOND BUTTER: Creamy almond butter acts as the base of these blender blueberry muffins. Instead of using flour, almond butter makes these muffins incredibly moist.
MASHED BANANA: Use ripe bananas to create more natural sweetness in these muffins.
EGGS: The two eggs help these muffins rise while baking and add just enough cake like texture.
MAPLE SYRUP: Pure maple syrup is a great Paleo sweetener. In addition, the maple syrup adds moistness to these blender blueberry muffins.
VANILLA EXTRACT: A teaspoon of vanilla adds a little flavor.
BAKING SODA: Baking soda is the leavening agent used in these Flourless Blueberry Muffins.
BLUEBERRIES: Carefully fold in the blueberries so they don’t break. If using frozen blueberries, thaw them completely. Then, squeeze out ALL moisture. Otherwise, these muffins would be too runny.
