Banana Coconut Muffins with Dried Blueberries and Hemp Seeds

Last Friday after a long walk in the park, I arrived home to a lovely package on my porch. The package was to me from Bob’s Red Mill-)) I received the coconut flour, dried blueberries and hemp seeds. I started thinking of recipes immediately. What to make? Cookies, pancakes, cake… I decided to bake banana muffins using all three ingredients. The following muffin recipe is both delicious and easy to make and are ideal to be served as breakfast or healthy snack. Thank you very much, I am very pleased with the quality of the products!

Coconut Flour is a delicious, healthy alternative to wheat and other grain flours. It is very high in fiber, low in digestible carbohydrates, a good source of protein and gluten free. It lends baked goods an incomparably rich texture and a unique, natural sweetness.

Dried Blueberries have no sugar or additives of any kind, just the wonderful concentrated natural flavor of blueberries. They’re simply sweet and plump blueberries that are great for snacking or right out of the bag. They are a great addition to muffins, pancakes, waffles, quick breads, cereal, snacks, or cookies.

Hulled Hemp Seeds is high in Omega-3 and Omega-6 essential fatty acids and an excellent source of protein- containing all of the essential amino acids.

    Hello Marina-)) I use strawberry puree with lime juice. You don't need the recipe for it, just puree the berries with lime or lemon juice. You van add a little honey if you like it sweet.

    I add hemp seeds in my smoothie and yogurt but never thought of adding it in baked goods as you have done.
    The strawberry purée also looks a great thing to try.
