Starbucks blueberry muffins… Mmmm.. Imagine having a blueberry muffin without any grains, refined sugar, or fake ingredients?! I got you one! Here’s my Paleo Blueberry Muffin Recipe.
This summer (2013) as I was taking trips to North Carolina, Disney, and Destin, my roommates were recipe testing. Yes, Paleo recipe testing, because they’re amazing! One of my roommates sent me a picture of these and said “These muffins are the best thing I’ve ever tasted!!”. I didn’t believe them until I had one myself, and they seriously are the best treats!
I’m not going to lie, back in my days of unhealthy eating I used to get a Frappuccino AND a muffin anytime I went to a coffee shop. Since the frappachino’s sugar wasn’t enough, I added a fake muffin on top of it. Obviously my body rejected this “snack” and after realizing these foods are TERRIBLE for me, I haven’t eaten either of those in years. Today I can make a nice Bulletproof Coffee and have a grain-free muffin for a weekend treat.
So what’s so great about these muffins? They’re extremely moist, sweet, and a blueberry bliss in every bite! The special ingredient is cinnamon. It’s in the batter and sprinkled on top. And here’s the ultimate test. We gave these muffins to people who did not know they were grain-free, and they LOVED them!
Fresh, local blueberries are also key to this recipe. I used freshly picked blueberries from Blue Harvest Farms. When they’re in season pick em, and freeze em’! My grandparents and my dad picked gallons this season, and they’re better than any from the store.
And a HUGE thank you to Oven Art Bakeware, who sent me some amazing silicon bakeware. Now every time I want to make muffins, I use their silicon bakeware, and highly recommend it. If you want to buy some, you can get them from Amazon [affiliate link].

As far as the calories go, I came up with multiple calculations from different online calculators, but they all came out differently. I’d guess around 250 calories a muffin.
