Author Deana Larkin Evans


  • 2 cups GF all-purpose baking flour (no xanthan gum)
  • 2 tsp guar gum
  • 2 tsp aluminum-free baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp pink Himalayan salt
  • 1/2 cup ghee (or coconut oil), melted but not hot
  • 1 cup raw cane sugar, plus more for sprinkling
  • 2 extra large eggs
  • 1 tbsp homemade pure vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup filtered water
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper liners.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, mix together the dry ingredients: baking flour, baking powder, guar gum and salt. Add the ghee (or coconut oil), sugar, eggs, vanilla and water. Use a fork or mixer to combine all the ingredients so that they are well-combined. Fold in the blueberries then use an ice cream scoop to scoop the batter into each muffin cup. Sprinkle with more raw sugar.
  3. Bake for 30 minutes or until a toothpick in the center comes out clean. Let cool on a cooling rack before indulging (the blueberries can retain some heat). Enjoy!
