A classic blueberry muffin with the addition of spelt, coconut, and orange.


    4 tbsp. butter

    2/3 c. coconut sugar

    1/3 c. applesauce

    2 egg

    1/2 c. orange juice

    2 tsp. vanilla extract

    2 c. spelt flour

    2 tsp. baking powder

    1 tsp. orange zest

    1/4 tsp. sea salt

    2 c. blueberries

    1/2 c. coconut flakes


Preheat oven to 375°F. Grease a 12-cup muffin tin or line with liners. In a large bowl, cream together softened butter and coconut sugar. Stir in applesauce, eggs, fresh-squeezed orange juice, and vanilla extract.

In a second large bowl, whisk together spelt flour, baking powder, orange zest, and salt. Stir flour mixture into butter-egg mixture until just combined. Gently stir in coconut flakes and blueberries. Spoon batter into muffin cups and bake until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean; about 30 minutes.
