Jumbo Berry Corn Muffins (gf + df)

IMG_2322-2.jpg

This recipe is a nice twist on the classic berry muffin. With the mixture of cornmeal and almond flour, these muffins take on a really nutty, but unique taste. Something about the cornmeal makes me feel like these muffins could've come straight from a farm. Not sure why, but I like it!You can use whatever berry you like  in this recipe, making it super versatile. You could even leave the berries out for plain muffins. I used a mixture of raspberries and blueberries and it was perfect!Happy baking!xo Monette*makes 8 jumbo muffinsIngredients:1 cup fine cornmeal1 ⅓ cups almond flour⅔ cup tapioca starch/flour1 tbsp baking powder½ tsp baking soda½ tsp salt¾ cup coconut sugar1 tsp lemon zest2 eggs1 cup almond milk2 tsp vanilla extract½ cup coconut or grapeseed oil2 cups fresh berries (I used blueberries and raspberries) Steps:
