Wild blueberries are the most nutritious—and the most natural— option, so go for them if you can find them. Ingredients For the Streusel: ¾ cup (90 g) chopped pecans 2 tablespoons (26 g) erythritol crystals ½ teaspoon Ceylon cinnamon 1½ tablespoons (25 ml) melted grass-fed butter or extra-virgin coconut oil For the Blueberry Muffins: 4 eggs ? cup (80 ml) heavy cream or coconut milk ? cup (33 g) erythritol crystals 20 drops vanilla stevia, or to taste ½ cup (60 g) coconut flour ½ cup (75 g) frozen wild blueberries Yield: 10 muffins Preheat the oven to 300°F (150°C). Line a muffin pan with paper liners. Prepare the streusel: Combine all the streusel ingredients in a medium bowl. Mix well with a spoon. Set aside. Prepare the muffin batter: Place the eggs, cream, erythritol, and vanilla stevia in a medium bowl and mix well. Gradually add the coconut flour, mixing all the time to prevent lumping. Fold in the frozen blueberries. Scoop the batter into the muffin liners, filling them three-quarters full. Divide the streusel between the muffins, gently pressing it into the muffin batter so it sticks. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of a muffin comes out almost dry. Remove from the oven, let cool slightly, and serve, or freeze for 1 to 2 months.
