Coconut Blueberry Muffin-Phase 3 Maintenance recipe

I have finely gotten an opportunity to start posting all my Phase 3 Recipes. I remember when I started maintenance how excited I was to start experimenting with coconut flour and almond meal.

I know that many of you have busy mornings with getting the kids ready for school and getting ready for work and you just don't have time to sit down and have breakfast in the morning. I know that for me I use to end up pulling through a fast food place to grab a biscuit or a muffin with my cup of joe. Well this is a simple solution! All it takes is one night a week when the kids are in bed. Having something like this on hand helps prevent falling back into bad habits.

For a standard size muffin about :100 cals, for Mini: 35 cals.

1/3 cup Coconut Flour
3 Eggs
1/4 cup Melted Butter
1/4 cup Sugar Substitute (liquid form, dissolve in water)
1/2 cup Blueberries or Raspberries
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1/4 tsp salt
2-4 TBSP Unsweetened Apple Sauce

Oven set to 375
-Whisk Eggs together in a mixing bowl, slowly stream melted Butter while continuing to whisk Eggs.
-Once Butter is evenly incorporated add Salt and Vanilla Extract, mix well.
-Add liquid Sweetener
-Whisk to fully incorporate.

-In another mixing bowl, mix together Coconut Flour and Baking Powder.

-Slowly add dry ingredients into the wet mixture.

-Add 1 TBSP at a time of Apple Sauce. You will want the consistency that will hold up the berries but not too thick. This will also help keep the muffins moist, because coconut flour tends to absorb all liquid.

-Gently mix berries and divide among muffin cups about 3/4 full.

-Bake for about 15-18 mins or until golden brown on top and a toothpick comes out clean.

*I like to do them as mini muffins to help with not getting to much sweet stuff in my system, bake time will be slightly different.



  1. How much stevia & water do I add to make the liquid stevia?

  2. I usually do about 1/8 cup of stevia and then fill the rest of the 1/4 cup with the water and let it dissolve.

  3. Some may want it sweeter and do a little more.
