Best Blueberry Oat Muffins (Gluten-Free)

Ingredients:

  • 4 1/2 cups oat flour (see notes below)
  • 2 Tbs baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup sucanat (or brown sugar)
  • 2/3 cup honey
  • 2 cups kefir (or buttermilk)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups frozen blueberries (or chopped strawberries)
Instructions:
  1. Whisk together the oat flour, baking powder, and salt.
  2. In a saucepan over medium-low heat, warm the coconut oil, sucanat, honey, and kefir. (It should be warm to the touch. This will keep the coconut oil from hardening when you mix it.)
  3. Pour  the warmed coconut oil mixture into a large bowl. Add the eggs and vanilla; whisk until combined.
  4. Whisk in the dry ingredients. Stir in the blueberries.
  5. Line 2 dozen muffin cups with muffin liners (or grease each cup with coconut oil). Spoon the batter into the muffin cups.
  6. Bake at 375 degrees for 25 minutes, or until golden and set.
  7. These are delicious warm or cooled, but are better set after cooling.
Notes:
Oat flour can be made by milling oats with a kitchen mill or by processing them in a food processor (or high-powered blender) until fine.
Yield: 2 dozen
