They are paleo, gluten free, dairy free, and can be made AIP and vegan with the instructions I provide below.

This cassava and tiger nut flour muffins recipe can also be used as the base to make many different types of muffins: blueberry, cranberry, strawberry, lemon poppy seed, or whatever your heart desires!

Recipe substitutions or variations 

Recipe substitutions:

Cassava flour substitutions: If you aren’t able to access cassava flour, you could swap it out for a gluten-free flour mix. Because cassava absorbs a bit more liquids than regular gluten-free flour, you may need to up the quantity of gluten-free flour. Start with 2 cups though, and once you have added all dry and wet ingredients, determine whether your muffin batter is too wet. Muffin batter should be thinner than cookie batter but not as thin as say pancake batter.

Tiger nut flour substitutions:  If you want to make this recipe lower carb or aren’t able to access tiger nut flour, swap it out for almond flour. This is the only other flour that is somewhat similar to tiger nut flour. You may have to adjust the quantities up or down though depending on how much liquid the almond flour absorbs.

Egg substitutions: Replace 2 eggs with 2 egg substitutes.

Coconut oil substitutions: The coconut oil in this recipe can be swapped out for any other cooking oil, vegan butter or even regular butter if you tolerate dairy.

Maple syrup substitutions: The maple syrup in this recipe can be swapped out for liquid honey or agave syrup. I don’t suggest swapping it out for granulated sugars, otherwise the liquid to dry ingredient ratio will be off.

Dairy free milk substitutions: For this recipe you can use any type of dairy free or non dairy free milk such as almond milk, cashew milk, oat milk, macadamia milk, or cows milk.

Vanilla extract substitutions: Instead of vanilla extract, you can also use vanilla bean powder, vanilla bean paste, or non alcohol based vanilla extract.

Recipe variations:

Make this recipe AIP: Omit the eggs from this recipe and replace with gelatin based “eggs”.

Make this recipe vegan: Replace 2 eggs with 2 vegan egg substitutes of your choice.

Make these muffins different flavours: These gluten free raspberry muffins can be made with many different types of berries and flavours. Instead of raspberries, you can also use blueberries, cranberries, strawberries, raisins, chocolate chips, and anything else your heart desires! This recipe is based on my lemon poppyseed muffin recipe which is also excellent.
