These Paleo Orange Raspberry Crumb Muffins are easy, healthy and taste like a treat! This recipe is dairy free, gluten free, grain free and refined sugar free. These muffins are packed with protein, fiber and healthy fats for a satisfying breakfast or snack!
Having easy, grab-and-go breakfast options on hand is essential for me if I'm trying to live my best life. I'm not a huge breakfast person to begin with, but when I have a busy day, the last thing I want to deal with is pots, pans, dishes and all that nonsense in the morning.
My favorite easy breakfast is simple: buttered toast, cinnamon sugar or jam optional. While that will suffice as a once-in-a-while treat, at my age I need something with a little more bang for its buck. I can't get by eating sugary, buttery carbs for breakfast anymore. I need it to be healthy, but I also need it to be easy and I need it satisfy in the same way that a piece cinnamon toast otherwise would (okay, impossible, but you get my point).
These muffins fit the bill perfectly. I'm a huge fan of "Paleo" baked goods because I find them to have a very satisfying texture and flavor despite not containing any refined sugars, grains or dairy. This is what we call having our cake and eating it too. Because muffins, if you weren't already aware, are really just cake masquerading as breakfast.
These Paleo orange raspberry crumb muffins are made with plenty of eggs for protein and a combination of almond and coconut flour for fiber and even more added protein. Throw in some fresh fruit for the vitamin factor and coconut oil for healthy fats and you get what I would consider nothing less than a health bomb.
The muffins taste tangy and flavorful thanks to the magical combination of orange and raspberry. A little bit of maple syrup makes them just sweet enough, and they get sprinkled with a coconut crumb topping right before baking to make them even more amazing. They can be kept in the freezer for longer storage, and make an awesome mid-afternoon snack.
But really, they're best for easy, on-the-go breakfasts since they can simply be plucked out of the fridge, unwrapped and devoured... or shoveled into your mouth while driving and hoping to not smash crumbs into your lap because girl, that raspberry will definitely stain your pants and everyone in yoga class will think you're bleeding.
Just saying. Enjoy!
