Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins Made With Coconut Flour (Gluten Free)

I’ve had coconut flour sitting up in the cabinet for about 6 months now.  I bought it because it’s good for you, it’s gluten-free, high in fiber and protein, and I wanted to bake with it.

I hadn’t done a thing with it, so I looked up “Recipes using coconut flour” and got some pretty good results, but in the end I went with these delicious muffins.  I normally associate lemon with summer time, but since the weather has been ridiculously nice lately, I figured these were appropriate.

The consistency of the muffins was really thick and dense.  I didn’t know what to expect since I had never baked with coconut flour before, but I was pleasantly surprised.  The coconut flavor is pretty predominant in these, but I think that’s a good thing.


Have you baked with coconut flour before?  What did you think of it?

  1. I'm pretty sure whole foods probably sells it, but I bought mine off Amazon. Thanks ! The flavors compliment each other pretty well.

  2. I have never seen coconut flour before.  I have some coconut oil in my fridge and I haven't used that, but want to.  I will have to keep an eye out for this…I wonder if Whole foods sells it?  These muffins sound great – love the idea of the coconut and lemon together!

  3. Thanks for the recipe, I have had coconut flour forever and I was never really sure what to make with it. I made a bread recipe once and it was horrible, I can't wait to try this out!
