Dairy and Grain Free fruit and nut muffins

I made these cakes for a new client last week to illustrate that you can still enjoy a cake now and again whilst sticking with a grain and dairy free diet. They are packed full of nourishing healthy ingredients and taste very good with a cup of black or green tea.

You will need:

30g coconut oil melted
3 tablespoons coconut milk
3 medium eggs beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
 30g coconut flour (tiana do a good one)
1 teaspoon gluten free baking powder
1 1/2 tablespoons coconut sugar (again tiana do a good one)
25g raisins or dried cranberries
25g chopped mixed nuts (or any combination, I use walnuts)
¼ teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Handful sunflower seeds


Mix together the coconut oil, coconut milk, eggs and vanilla essence 

In another bowl mix flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, coconut sugar, chopped nuts, raisins and sunflower seeds.

Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix well. Spoon into cake cases and bake for approx 12 minutes  at 170 degrees C or until firm to the touch.

Cool on a wire rack.
