Orange Berry Paleo Muffins with Maria Fernanda Lopez

Kerry Roberts

New year, totally new thing on the blog: our first official guest post!  And if that wasn't exciting enough, in this post our superfoods are taking a break from the blender and heading into the OVEN.  The very first Everipe superfood baked good has been created.  The recipe is simple, healthy, and totally delish. Enjoy! 

Guest written by Maria Fernanda Lopez of Purely Healthy Living:
We all have our own holiday classic. Every culture has its own signature Christmas/holiday recipe, and orange cranberry is one of those classic recipes we enjoy during this season. Taking inspiration from that combo, I created my own variation with the ingredients I already have in my pantry.

I used Everipe's Unbelievaberry smoothie kit containing berries, chia seeds and hemp seeds for the berry.  For the orange touch I used sweet orange essential oil. Have you tried using essential oils for cooking? It's a simple way to add extra flavor with just a few drops.

The combination of berries and orange is just AMAZING. So flavorful! Definitely obsessed with this recipe. Those drops of orange essential oils really make a difference; I usually get my essential oils at Marshalls or TJ-Maxx. 

These muffins were made using paleo ingredients so these will be:
- Wheat Free
- Gluten Free
- Lactose Free
They are are also low carb thanks to the monk fruit, a natural sugar that doesn't give us glucose spikes. Added bonus: it's keto and diabetic friendly! 

As with most of my recipes, this is a simple recipe with simple steps. Healthy foods meet convenience and flavor--one of my mottos when it comes to cooking.
