- If you prefer you can replace the coconut milk with almond milk or a similar paleo friendly milk.
- Make sure you beat the liquids together well so they are well combined. If you don’t you may end up with a mixture that doesn’t work very well.
- It’s important to know that these paleo blueberry muffins or any kind of paleo baking can be very hit and miss. If you’re having trouble getting this recipe to work be sure to check out video above.
- If you find your muffins are starting to burn on the outside but are still uncooked in the middle. Then you should try covering them in foil. This will help stop them from browning any further whilst allowed the mix to continue to cook.
- If you can get your hands on any fresh berries, then frozen will work just as well.
- You should be aware that vanilla essence contains alcohol for those trying to steer clear of anything that is not 100% paleo friendly then I recommend using vanilla bean. Vanilla bean is slightly more expensive but is totally worth the money.
