Savory Lemon Muffins

Please share:

A good hearty soup warms the body and the soul, especially when it is cold outside. And, a good homemade muffin makes any bowl of soup even better.

This muffin is not sweet. It has a nice, savory taste that couples well with any type of soup and even chill. It tastes that much better topped with grass fed butter or ghee.

Enjoy with some of the soups found here.

Savory Lemon Muffins

  • 1-1/2 cups organic gluten-free flour (I prefer sprouted flours and like to use equal parts rice flour, garbanzo bean flour and tapioca flour. Casava flour is another option. Experiment to see what combo you like best.**)
  • 1 tsp. baking powder (this brand does not contain corn)
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. Himalayan salt
  • 1/2 cup hardened organic coconut oil (or coconut oil shortening)
  • 1 6-oz. carton organic plain non-dairy yogurt (we like cashew or coconut yogurt)
  • 2 eggs (click here if you need an egg substitute)
  • 1 tbsp. raw honey
  • 1 tbsp. fresh squeezed lemon juice

Preheat oven to 400 degrees and grease muffin tins with coconut oil. (I have found muffin stone wear to be the least toxic type.)

In mixing bowl thoroughly stir together flours, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add hardened coconut oil or shortening and use two knives to cut into dry mixture until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

In a separate bowl, mix together yogurt, lemon juice, honey, and eggs. Add all the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir just until moistened. Use spoon to pour batter equally into muffin containers, filling each two-thirds full. 

Bake 20 minutes or until tops turn a light golden color. Yields 10-12 muffins.

** When you eat gluten-free it is important to rotate the types of flours you use so that you do not develop a sensitivity to another type of grain or to a nut. Many gluten-free mixes tend to contain almond flour, for example, which is high in oxalates. See My Pantry for more information and a comprehensive list of flours and other pantry supplies.
