  • 1 tablespoon melted coconut oil or avocado oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 tablespoons maple syrup or honey
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk or full-fat coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • zest of 1 large lemon
  • 1/4 cup arrowroot powder or tapioca starch
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda


  • Preheat the oven to 350℉ and line a muffin tin with cupcake liners. Or generously grease them.
  • Combine the oil, maple syrup/honey, eggs, milk, lemon juice, lemon zest, and vanilla in a large bowl, whisking to combine.
  • In the same bowl, add the arrowroot powder, coconut flour, and baking soda. Stir until well combined and there are no lumps. Let sit for 5 minutes so that coconut flour has had a chance to absorb liquid.
  • Spoon 2 heaping tablespoons of batter into each cup.
  • Bake the muffins for 25 minutes, or until the tops are slightly browned and a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the center of a muffin.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 20 minutes. Enjoy immediately or store in the refrigerator in a tightly sealed container for up to 5 days. Freeze the leftover muffins in a tightly sealed container for up to 1 month.
