1 Cup Organic Coconut Flour
1/2 Teaspoon Sea Salt
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 Cup + 2 Tablespoons of Raw Organic Honey
1 Cup Organic Coconut Milk
1 Tablespoons Organic Coconut Oil (melted)
4 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract
1 Tablespoons of Organic Chia Seeds
1 Cup Fresh or Frozen (Thawed) Organic Cherries (Blueberries & Raspberries work well too!)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
1. Sift the coconut flour and baking soda into a large bowl.
2. In another bowl, or blender (I used my Vitamix) combine eggs, coconut milk , honey & vanilla and whisk/blend to incorporate. Add in Chia seeds and stir- let sit for a moment to absorb liquid.
3. Slowly add in wet mixture a little at a time to dry ingredients.
4. Fold in the fruit and pour batter into greased (use coconut oil) or into baking cups, filling 3/4 full.
*I like to top each muffin with a piece of fruit and sprinkle with either *Coconut Sugar or *Date Sugar
5. Bake for 25-20 minutes until the muffins begin to turn golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean.
