Coconut Flour Orange poppy seeds muffins (Gluten Free)

Sharing is caring!


I am trying to bake with alternative flours nowadays. Reasons being, Trying to have more of healthy foods or using gluten free flours to share recipes with friends who are allergic. Coconut flour has now found a place in my pantry. I decided to make this delicious Coconut Flour Orange poppy seeds muffins which are naturally Gluten free.

This Coconut Flour Orange poppy seeds muffins are Gluten Free, Dairy Free and Nut Free. They are low in Carbs and are light and fluffy with orange flavour. They do not have any white sugar, but uses honey. Adding citrus based foods to your baked goods impart a lovely taste. I am a big fan of Lemon and Orange in bakes. Did you check my most popular recipe Lemon Cake (Without Baking Powder or Baking Soda) Yet?

I am pretty new to coconut flour baking and hence will not comment much on how it has to be used etc. As that will come by experience. But yes coconut flour absorbs a lot of liquid and it needs a good binding. At first my batter looked quite runny, but within few seconds, I could see all the liquid being absorbed. As if it was a liquid soaking monster. 😀

This was my first trial with coconut flour and I was not sure of how it will turn. I was very sure as it might taste coconut, as I do not like the taste of coconut in bakes. But no we could not even sense that. The only thing was that the texture of the bake was a bit grainy, but kid’s did not mind it.

Everyone say coconut flour is tricky to work, etc etc. I did not feel though or probably my first ever bake, my Coconut Flour Orange poppy seeds muffins turned out the best. My toddler, in every bite was like delicious, yummy. She could not even wait for me to take pics. She was like mumma I am hungry. 😀😀 And mind you, she is not a cake lover like me and my son 🙁.

Muffins without the Drizzle

I was being tempted to use coconut flour in baking after seeing the bakes of a friend blogger, Gayathri, who blogs at Gayathri’s Cook Spot. She has a wonderful collection of bakes and specially with alternate flours. Thank you Gayathri for tempting me to start the bakes with Coconut flour.

Hi Renu, I was wondering if there's something fancy I can replace the poppy seeds with as I don't get poppy seeds where I live. Thanks!

These muffins would definitely qualify as high in protein muffins with 6 eggs in it. I've yet to work with coconut flour but my niece using it often and says its pretty easy to use. Muffins look so moist and tempting, with orange flavor.
