Grain-Free Muffin Recipe ~ Nourishing Breakfast Food

Many have the goal of eating nutritiously without sacrificing taste. As well, many sweet souls have reasons to avoid foods and can make enjoying life a bit difficult. I will be the first to attest that I love food, and I especially see it as an art. Through many trials I have been forced to delve into my and my family’s diet and am so thankful for having to do so. Why? Because I now know more about our bodies and how to help them operate efficiently with nourishing foods. I am here today to share a grain-free muffin recipe that will not only please your palate, but nourish you from inside out.

Grain-Free Muffin Recipe that affords nourishment as well as yummy taste by Prodigal Pieces | prodigalpieces.com

Many of you have requested this recipe after I shared it on my social media accounts. So, here I am taking a minute to venture back into the realm of food. You can see my other wholesome recipes HERE.

99.9% of the time my family consumes a grain-free diet. Unfortunately, the grains you find in the grocery store are not good for you, especially if you have a compromised digestive system (most of us do and don’t even know it). The grains are not cultivated or processed in the way our ancestors learned to do and have become intolerable to our gut. I seriously suggest taking a read over here at The Weston A. Price Foundation for some wonderful information on diet and health.

Now, I will take a step off my nutrition soapbox and get back to this yummiliciousness at hand. These muffins never last long at our table and I make them weekly, so they’re easy enough to whip up for a morning feast. The base of this recipe allows for changing up the contents to whatever fruit or added goodie you prefer.

Although this recipe contains nut flours, I have even made these with garbanzo bean flours and the like, and they turn out delicious. FYI, buckwheat is not a grain, but a grass so is totally okay for those with grain issues.

I mention some ingredients in my recipe that may be unfamiliar to you. For instance, I source my butters, and raw milk from local farmers to get the quality I am after. My flours I either get from a local bulk food store or online at Tropical Traditions (best source for coconut flour, sugars, oils, etc), or here for:

My take on it is that baking and cooking is a fun way to experiment and get creative while enjoying the simple things in life.
