Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line a standard-sized muffin tin with parchment paper muffin cups.
  2. Place the eggs into a blender jar and blend on low until they become whipped and increase in volume.
  3. Add the coconut flour, coconut milk, melted butter, oil or ghee, arrowroot starch, sea salt, pepper, baking soda and baking powder to the blender. Blend until the ingredients are well incorporated, stopping to scrape the sides of the jar with a spatula as needed.
  4. Pour the batter into a large mixing bowl. In a small bowl, toss in the greens, scallions, bell pepper and any other veggies, herbs or meat and cheese that you are adding.
  5. Scoop the batter evenly into the lined muffin tin, sprinkle each muffin with some hemp seeds and bake for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes clean. Top the finished muffins with chopped chives.
  6. Muffins will keep up to one week in the refrigerator or can also be frozen. If freezing, allow to thaw in the refrigerator overnight.
