Why I avoid almond flour in paleo baking

I avoid almond flour for several reasons. Firstly, it is a highly processed food and has been stripped of many of its nutrients and fiber. Additionally, almond flour is typically very high in calories and fat, making it difficult to use in moderation. Furthermore, almond flour can be quite expensive compared to other types of flour, so it may not fit into everyone’s budget. Finally, almonds are a common allergen, so those with allergies should avoid almond flour altogether.

Not only are Paleo Pumpkin Coconut Muffins delicious, but they are also highly nutritious. Coconut flour is a great source of protein, healthy fats, and fiber, while pumpkin puree is rich in vitamins and minerals. Coconut oil is packed with healthy fatty acids and antioxidants, making these muffins beneficial for your health.

Pumpkin Coconut Muffins are the perfect snack for any time of day. They are ideal for breakfast, a mid-morning snack, or an after-dinner treat. Serve them with a cup of coffee for a truly nourishing and satisfying experience. With their delicious flavor and nutritious ingredients, these muffins are sure to become a new favorite in your home.

This recipe is not only simple and budget but also lean. It will be real salvation if you want something sweet and there is a minimum of food in the refrigerator.
