Muffins are perfectly proportioned baked treats. Just the right size for a quick breakfast, an afternoon snack, or a sweet treat after dinner. However, not all muffins are created equal!

In my pre-real food days, I was a low-fat, whole grains kinda girl. I read labels and bought the “healthy” options. But for some reason, I didn’t think twice about adding a cup of sugar or canola oil to a batch of muffins. I think I just figured it was an occasional treat, so it didn’t really matter as long as it was LOW FAT!

Yikes! I’m so glad I finally figured out this whole healthful, real food thing!

Healthy fats, like coconut oil, olive oil, and animal fats from pastured sources, are so nourishing. Industrial seed oils, like canola oil, cottonseed oil, and vegetable oil, are the opposite and can be inflammatory.

I’ve been gluten-free since 2009 and have found that ditching the whole grains made a world of difference in both my digestion and my skin.

So let’s get back to the muffins. I still love to bake, but now I think about every ingredient that gets added to my delicious baked goods. I want them to be a treat, but also, be nourishing. I now choose to use gluten-free flours like almond and coconut. I bake with healthy fats like coconut oil, butter, and lard. I choose to use natural sweeteners with local honey being my go-to. Even when using natural sweeteners, I often keep the amount I add to a minimum. With my switch to a real food/Paleo style diet, I’ve found my sensitivity to sweet has heightened and many dessert recipes are just too sweet.

Today I’m sharing a roundup of delicious and healthy gluten-free muffin recipes. There is something for everyone here. From savory to sweet and fruity to nutty, I’m sure you will find several that you can’t wait to try!

Learn How to Make Perfect Ice Cream (and Other Frozen Treats) at Home

Ice cream is the quintessential dessert (and, ahem, it would probably go pretty darn great with this recipe!). I mean, I can’t think of a single person that I’ve ever met who doesn’t like ice cream. While not everyone is as passionate about the cold, creamy, sweet concoction as I am, I am betting that if you’re reading this, you probably enjoy a frozen treat of some sort every now and then.

If so, then I have the PERFECT resource for you today.

I am crazy for ice cream, but I find that there are very few commercial ice creams that I can eat. I can’t do dairy, so that scratches a good 75% of them off the list. And the non-dairy options either taste funny, have too much sugar, or have weird gums and additives that my poor gut just doesn’t tolerate.

So, what’s a gal to do?

Master the art of making her own ice cream at home, that’s what!

And create I did and The Splendid Scoop and Other Frozen Treats eBook was born! This is one of my best-selling eBooks because I arm you with everything you need to make your own perfect ice cream (or other frozen treats) at home any time you want. 

And I do it all with real food ingredients, no refined sweeteners, not gums, not stabilizers. No junk here.

Oh, and I also have made the recipes allergen-friendly and even adaptable for stricter healing diets (like the AIP).

So, if you are ready to master the art of making your own ice cream at home, this is the perfect book for you. Don’t let another special occasion or hot day in the summer pass you by watching everyone else enjoying cold treats while you sit on the sideline due to your dietary restrictions.

No more!
