The Perfect Blueberry Muffins

Let’s just start off with talking about the awkwardness of the Bachelor last night. Or more so the awkwardness of the after-show where they actually showed Nikki and Juan Pablo together. It was painful, you guys.  Even Chris Harrison didn’t know what to do. I’ve come to the conclusion that Juan Pablo is incapable of forming an actual sentence of any form. I don’t think I knew what he was actually talking about at any point last night. Nor do I understand how any of his relationships on the show had an ounce of substance since he is incapable of having a human conversation. Weird. Anyways, one of my favorite parts of watching this season was reading people’s tweets during the show. Because people are clever and hilarious and it’s extremely entertaining. Here are some of my favorites from last night:

“PLOT TWIST: Juan Pablo picks Juan Pablo. #SelfAbsorbed #Douche”

“I’m sure Juan Pablo had something completely vulgar to say and ended it with ‘Ees Okay.’”

“What is your favorite color Juan Pablo? ‘Well Chris, there are many colors in the world. Pepperoni, however, is my favorite pizza.’”

“I missed the Bachelor tonight, but I can tell you what happened:

-Juan Pablo was a tool

- Girls cried

- Ton of commercials

- Eeees o-k”

“Haven’t started my bio notecards #esokay”

Hahaha. So if you didn’t catch the actual show last night but just got a summary via Twitter, I think you can come to the conclusion that everything Ees OKay.

Moving on to more important things in life. I am on Spring Break this week and it is glorious! I didn’t go anywhere but Ees okay. Columbus has been especially spring-like the past couple of days and I don’t hate it one bit. Spring weather instantly makes me happier. I don’t even hate winter but being able to finally go outside without wearing a parka is nice. Also, opening the windows and having a cool little breeze coming in is extra nice. And driving in your car with the windows down it double extra nice. We even grilled last night. Outdoors. But don’t worry everyone, we are getting a snowstorm tomorrow. I wish I was kidding.

So last week I got two AWESOME new cookbooks. One is the 21 Day Sugar Detox Cookbook by Balanced Bites and the other is Primal Cravings from Health Bent. They are both incredible. I’ve already made like 10 things from Primal Cravings. Okay more like one, but I’ve wanted to make like 50. You should go get that book right now. Anyways, one of the things I love about Primal Cravings is that they don’t use almond flour in a lot of their baked goods and dessert recipes. Don’t get me wrong, I love almond flour as much as the next person, but sometimes it’s too much. And too much almond flour can lead to bad things. Plus, I know a lot of readers who have told me they are allergic to nuts, so I think it’s awesome that they provide so many alternatives. So for today’s muffin recipe I used the base from their Chunky Monkey Muffins, which are completely nut free and delicious. You’re welcome.

    I didn’t watch the bachelor this season, but listening to my friends talk about the finale was enough to tell me what happened. “Ees okay” throughout your post was really funny. Those muffins look really good. I don’t have any other flour except for wheat flour, so maybe I’ll try some with that.

    Hi Taylor,
    I love these muffins! They look soo good. A quick q that i’m sure you’ve answered before BUT, how do you stop the liners from sticking? I find that I always seem to lose half my muffin because its stuck to the liner and then I look like i’m eating paper…

      I’ll be honest, mine stick sometimes too :( Maybe you could lightly spray them with coconut oil?

      Have you tried parchment paper muffin cups? I use the “if you care” unbleached ones (can order them on amazon or if you’re lucky like me your local grocery store will have them). I’ve used it with coconut flour, almond flour, etc and nothing really sticks.

      I use silicon muffin cups- nothing sticks and they are reusable!

    These. Are. Amazing. I just burned my mouth scarfing 2 down straight from the oven :p
    Worth it.

    Perhaps a silly question, but I’ve made the Chunky Monkey Muffins, and I LOVE them. However, they do taste pretty banana-y. Do these have that banana taste? Or do they taste more like a regular blueberry muffin??

      I used applesauce instead of banana and they came out great. I also reduced the coconut sugar to 1/4 cup, and used half butter half coconut oil.
