A fruit-sweetened blueberry muffin that has no added sugar and tastes AMAZING!


  • ½ c applesauce, unsweetened
  • 2 c blueberries
  • 8 oz dates, pitted
  • ½ c butter/ghee
  • 1 T vanilla
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 c flour (Gluten Free see below)
  • 1 t baking powder
  • ½ t baking soda
  • 1 t salt
  • ¼ t nutmeg


  1. Combine blueberries and applesauce in a small bowl, set aside
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour (xanthan gum if gluten free), baking powder, baking soda, salt and nutmeg
  3. Check dates for pits. 
  4. In a food processor or blender, add dates, butter/ghee, eggs, and vanilla.  Process/blend until combined and date pieces are small
  5. Transfer to large bowl with dry ingredients, mix until combined
  6. Gently fold in blueberries
  7. Line muffin pan with muffin cups, spoon batter into cups
  8. Bake at 350° for 18-22 minutes for mini-muffins, 22-28 minutes for large muffins or until golden brown on top


Gluten free: I think plain oat flour is the easiest gluten free transition.  The muffins need xanthan gum to help them stick together: 
* 2 c oat flour, lightly packed (240g)
* 1 t xanthan gum

Dairy Free: use your favorite butter substitute, coconut oil or avocado oil

Whole30: use paleo flour and ghee
