  • 1.5 cups white whole wheat flour

  • 2 eggs, large
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup almond milk, unsweetened
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • 1 cup pureed fruit*


  1. First, preheat oven to 350ºF and line a muffin tin with muffin liners. We suggest also spraying your muffin liners with cooking spray just in case.
  2. Next, place dry ingredients into a medium bowl and mix.
  3. Then, in a large bowl crack 2 eggs and whisk. Add maple syrup, almond milk, and preferred pureed fruit* and mix again.
  4. Add dry ingredients into wet ingredients and then mix. Then, add in melted coconut oil and mix again.
  5. At this point, add any of the add-ins for one of the 6 muffin recipes in this post and mix again.
  6. Fill each muffin about 3/4 of the way full (these are going to be big muffins). Then, place in the oven at 350ºF and bake for 18-22 minutes or until the center is fully cooked.
  7. Let cool for 5 minutes and then remove from the muffin tin to continue cooling.


  • Pureed fruit: the pureed fruit you use is dependent on which muffin recipe you are planning on using.
  • Nutrition information includes 1 cup of unsweetened applesauce as the pureed fruit.
