Start your morning with a batch of tender Paleo muffins made with a gluten-free flour mix, rich cacao, toasted walnuts, and a splash of cold brew to get you buzzing. Tip: Freeze some for later so you’ll always have an easy grab-and-go breakfast on hand.

Paleo Cacao & Cold Brew Muffins

Yield: 12 muffins
Active Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes


4 eggs
⅓ cup Califia Farms Cold Brew
3 tablespoons coconut oil or vegetable oil
3 tablespoons maple syrup
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 box Simple Mills Almond Flour Pancake & Waffle Mix
¼ cup cacao powder
½ cup toasted walnuts, chopped


Heat oven to 350°F and mist a muffin tin with cooking spray. Whisk eggs, cold brew, oil, maple syrup, and vanilla in a large bowl. Add the baking mix and cacao powder; whisk until well blended. Fold in half of the walnuts, then divide batter evenly between the muffin cups, filling them about ⅔ of the way full. Sprinkle remaining walnuts on top. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool completely.
