Muffins + Scones

gluten-free grapefruit + pistachio muffins

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 a recipe on the Roost blog. 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.

    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

    what an interesting combination! Two flavors I love, never thought to try them together in baked goods. Sounds like I’m going to need to venture into grapefruit + pistachio world

    Break those blog rules! These muffins sound so good–I’m definitely in the mood for citrus this winter. 🙂

    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 😉

    Anything with grapefruit and nuts, that doesn’t have sugar is going to be one of my favorites. Pinning right now!

    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 🙂
