2 eggs

2 tablespoons clementine juice, freshly squeezed

1 teaspoon orange zest

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1 ounce chopped macadamia nuts

3 tablespoons extra virgin coconut oil, melted

cup sifted organic coconut flour

teaspoon baking powder

2 egg whites, beat to soft peaks

Generous ⅓ cup fresh blueberries,

Generous ⅓ cup fresh raspberries, plus extra for garnish

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Line a muffin tin with paper liners.

Place two eggs, clementine juice, orange zest, vanilla, macadamia nuts and coconut oil in a medium bowl and mix with a fork until combined. Sift coconut flour and baking powder into the egg mixture and stir until just mixed; set aside. In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until they form soft peaks. Fold the egg whites and fresh berries into the batter.

Fill each muffin cup full; place a few of the reserved berries on the top of each muffin pressing them gently into the batter; bake 16-18 minutes. Let the muffins cool in the pan for 1 to 2 minutes, then remove from tin and cool on a wire rack. Serve with almond butter or grass-fed butter mixed with cinnamon.

Serves six.
