Orange poppy seed almond muffins – vegan

Finally, I’m sharing a paleo AND vegan muffin recipe with you. Combining orange peel, poppy seeds and almonds was the best thing I’ve ever tried! Those muffins taste fresh and summery and sour and at the same time sweet raspberries go perfectly along with them.

I guess, this recipe meets a lot of different dietary needs. They are paleo, gluten free, dairy free, vegan, egg free, sugar free, high in protein and they contain healthy fats and good carbs, as well as a lot of fibre.

I could keep rambling about how perfect they are and taste for hours but I think, the best thing is to try them!

New addition to my paleo food staples: plantain flour

As some might know, it is not that easy to get paleo conform flour. The more excited was I when I discovered plantain flour* in the supermarket. Using it the first time in this recipe, I was stunned. It is easy to use like rice flour or chestnut flour and it smells heavenly sweet and reminded me of „Fizzers“. (A candy I had as a kind sometimes.) It is perfect for sweet dishes like cake, waffles, noatmeal or pancakes. Stay tuned for more recipes coming your way using this flour!
