Blueberry Coconut Muffins



These Blueberry Coconut Muffins are a wonderful, healthy creation of mine.  Kids will love them too!  I used freshly ground white whole wheat flour, maple syrup, Bob's Red Mill Flaked Coconut, pumpkin pie spice, coconut oil, flax eggs, almond cream and frozen blueberries. Bob's Red Mill carries a coconut with larger flakes and they work very nicely in this recipe. Only $3.11 for a 12 oz. bag on  iherb.

1 1/2 cups white whole wheat flour
3/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 tsp. sea salt
1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 tsp. vanilla
2 flax eggs (make with 2 Tbsp. ground flax seed & 6 Tbsp. water-mix and let sit until egg-like consistency)
1/2 cup almond cream (Blend well: 10 almonds with 1/2 cup water)
1 cup frozen blueberries

1.)  Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.  Use 8 regular sized cup cake holders or 4 large ones (like shown).
2.)  Put maple syrup, coconut oil, vanilla in blender and blend well..  Add flax eggs and blend  for 1 minute. 
3.)  Add almond cream to liquids and set aside.
