These low-carb blueberry muffins are one of my favorite breakfasts of all time. Super easy and healthy! Low-histamine, Paleo, gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free.
These low-carb blueberry muffins are perfect for a wide array of dietary restrictions!
I’ve been struggling lately which what I FINALLY believe to be a histamine intolerance. It started several years ago when I was living in a moldy home, and I never fully pieced it together, despite knowing I had an issue with foods that commonly harbor mold.
It literally took me until about two months ago to suspect histamine when I discovered that zyrtec helped a lot with my intense eye pain, sinus problems and headaches.
Since I recently started reducing histamine-containing foods, I’ve found a lot of relief from my symptoms. But the list of foods is long and confusing. I am so happy to be able to consume these low-carb blueberry muffins!
What I love about these muffins is how simple and delicious they are. They’re fluffy, vanilla-y and chock full of delicious blueberries. They’re perfect for breakfast or a quick snack whenever I feel a bit hungry.
As long as I freeze them shortly after baking, I’ve found that I can thaw them out quickly in a microwave and consume them with no issues! For those who are not familiar, histamine also builds within “safe” foods the longer they sit around after being cooked, so leftovers are usually off limits, or need to be consumed rather quickly.
They are super easy to make, too!
To make these low-carb blueberry muffins, you’ll need two bowls, one for the dry ingredients and one for the wet ingredients.
For the dry ingredients, you’ll need coconut flour and a granulated sweetener of your choice. I like the Pyure organic stevia blend, but if you are not low-carb, you can also use coconut sugar.
For the wet ingredients, you’ll need melted butter or coconut oil, three eggs and vanilla extract. Mix them all together until the eggs are fully combined, then add into the wet ingredients. Stir until there are no clumps left. Gently mix in the blueberries.
To six baking cups (I like these reusable silicone ones), add the batter, and top with additional blueberries, if desired. Place filled baking cups onto a baking sheet and bake in a preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the tops begin to brown.
Remove from oven and allow to cool to room temperature before consuming. If you are histamine intolerant, freeze leftovers right away and pop into the microwave for 30 seconds or so, when you are ready to consume.
Can I use almond flour instead of coconut flour?
Yes you can. If you are following a low-histamine diet, you may not want to consume almond flour.
However, if you are simply following a low-carb or Paleo diet, almond flour is totally fine. You can substitute the 1/4 cup coconut flour for 1 cup of almond flour. You will also need to recalculate the macros, as almond flour has a different carb profile.
Can I substitute ___ for blueberries?
Yes, you can customize these muffins in so many ways! Blackberries, raspberries or strawberries, chocolate chips, so many ingredients would work great. Just keep in mind the histamine level of the ingredients you are using if that concerns you!
