Easy Orange Paleo Muffins (Nut & Gluten FREE)

I got up one morning with a huge muffin craving. I wanted something that tasted like orange and that was grain free as well. I quickly created the recipe for these Paleo Orange Muffins that’s so easy and quick to make that, by the time you are ready to start your day, your paleo breakfast will be ready for you! Warm and delicious like you just walked into an artisanal bakery!

…Or at least that’s what I often feel for breakfast after being born and raised in Italy, where breakfast happens with pastries and croissants!

You know me, I love baking. And, most of the times, I opt for crunchy biscotti or delicious pie crusts. I love them!!

When I’m pressed for time and don’t feel having too much fat, I go for stuff that has to rise, like a quick Apple Cake or some easy muffins just like these.

In fact, while we need to add a decent amount of fat (like coconut oil or butter) to our dough if we want the cookies to be friable and melt in our mouth, batters can come out perfect even with very little fat.

And let’s be honest, pouring batter in a muffin mold couldn’t be easier and it takes about 30 seconds. Rolling down a dough several times and shaping cookies until there’s no more cutouts can be quite time consuming… so you really need to be in the mood for that!
