Vanilla Raspberry Muffins

Vanilla Raspberry Muffins

12 eggs
3/4 cup coconut oil, melted
3/4 cup honey
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 cup coconut flour, sifted
1/2 teaspoon baking soda (may be omitted)
fresh or frozen raspberries

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

In a large bowl, beat together eggs, butter/ghee/coconut oil, honey, salt, vanilla, and almond extract.

Sift in coconut flour (this helps reduce clumps!). Blend in coconut flour and baking soda, if using. Allow batter to sit for a few minutes to allow coconut flour to absorb the moisture.

Grease muffin tins. Pour batter into tins. In each muffin cup, stir in 3-4 raspberries. (NOTE: If frozen, raspberries do not need to be thawed).

Bake 325 degrees F for 16-18 minutes. [Or possibly longer.] Remove from tins and cool. NOTE: Because honey is used as a sweetener, these muffins may brown quickly. The browning does not impact taste.

NOTE: Using raspberries, vanilla extract, and almond extract, you'll have a hard time convincing your kids that these nutritious coconut-flour muffins aren't cupcakes! These muffins freeze well. Makes 20-24 muffins. Recipe can be halved.
