More Gluten Free For Me

I'll post my food log in a bit, but first here is a little about a recipe ANNA T of CrossFit Champion introduced me to at this weekends Oktoberfest Obliteration. I tried one of her Blueberry Muffins, gluten & dairy free. She used coconut flour instead of that nasty bleached yeasty stuff most bakers use. The results were pure deliciousness! She emailed me the blueberry & a banana muffin recipe.

Gluten Free and Dairy Free Cupcakes/Muffins
Serves 12 muffins

3 Tbsp butter, melted (or coconut oil)
3 eggs
1/3 cup sugar (I substituted Agave Nectar)
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup Coconut Flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 mashed banana
Chopped nuts (optional)

Mix all ingredients
Pour batter in a muffin tin with liners
Bake 15 minutes at 400 degrees

I added blue berries to 4 of them as a test. I loved it, but should have cooked them about 5 minutes longer. I think had the kido not had donuts first she would have enjoyed them as much as Scott and I did.

Those sound really good! Can you get coconut flour at heb or did you go to whole foods?

I found mine at whole foods, but Robin says the HEB in Leander sells it. I haven't looked for it at my heb.
