I think I might be breaking some blog rules. These muffins are very similar to the ones I just posted, and I’m posting about muffins twice this week. Also, I have nothing witty to say about them, except that I find these muffins amazingly wonderful – no dairy, white flour, or sugar, but yet still incredibly tasty. It’s the treat I want to start this New Year with. So, Happy New Year dear friends and readers! Let’s shake things up a bit.


Gluten-free Grapefruit + Pistachio Muffins

These muffins are adapted from Roost, and you can find the recipe here. I only made a few changes: I used olive oil instead of ghee, and I added 1/4 cup fresh squeezed grapefruit juice and 1 teaspoon vanilla to the wet ingredients, and then added 1 teaspoon grapefruit zest and 1/4 cup chopped pistachio nuts to the dry ingredients. I also sprinkled them with a little sugar in the raw before baking.

  1. There’s nothing wrong with two muffin posts in one week as far as I’m concerned! Especially yours. I am so intrigued by the combination of pistachio and grapefruit, I will have to try those very soon. Thanks so much for sharing 🙂

  2. These sounds perfect… if only I wasn’t on a detox and then they just sound like plain torture! Haha 😉

    Pistachio & grapefruit sounds like such a perfect combination – I love the idea of the tart brightness of the citrus. A perfect example of when blog rules should be broken 😉

    I clicked on the Roost link for the recipe but it does not link to any recipe and I cannot find a muffin recipe on the site it takes me to. Could you put the direct link to the recipe? Thanks
