The following honey muffin recipe is a sample gluten-free muffin recipe taken from my book “Cooking with Coconut Flour.”

  • All of the recipes in “Cooking with Coconut Flour” are totally wheat free, and only use coconut flour.
  • No other flours are needed for any of the recipes in my book.
  • Gluten free recipes include breads, muffins, cakes, cookies, crackers, pies, and even main dishes like chicken pot pie and chicken and dumpling stew.

This gluten free honey muffin recipe produces a texture and a taste that is just as good as any muffin made with white wheat flour.While this muffin recipe does contains some honey, it is much lower in carbohydrate than ordinary muffins. This recipe makes 6 muffins but only uses 1/4 cup of coconut flour. This is a basic coconut flour muffin recipe you can use to make a variety of muffins.

The advantage of this muffin recipe is it contains no wheat or gluten, it is high in fiber and is relatively low in digestible carbohydrate.
