Jackfruit is my latest obsession!!! I just found a bag of frozen jackfruit at Whole Foods for $6.99. I was beyond excited to try out the jackfruit muffin recipe, located on the back of the bag. I modified the recipe to meet my autoimmune inflammatory protocol diet, but the recipe turned out great! For the original recipe click here. Everything bolded in the ingredients has been modified for my Paleo version.
What is Jackfruit?
Jackfruit is the largest tree fruit in the world! In fact, it can reach up to 100 pounds, but its average weight is 10-25 pounds. Many people in the vegan community tout this as the fruit that can feed the world. Jackfruit has a “meaty” texture and can be used in smoothies, breads, soups, juices, and as a vegan “pulled pork” substitute.
- 2 ripe bananas
- 1/4 cup coconut oil (1/2 cup from original recipe was too oily for Paleo version)
- ¼ cup maple syrup (other recipe called for a 1/2 cup sugar)
- 2 T water (1/2 cup was too much for paleo version)
- 1 ¼ Cups coconut flour (1 cup from original recipe was not enough)
- ½ t baking powder
- ½ t baking soda
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 ½ cups frozen ripe jackfruit cut into ½ inch pieces
- Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit & line muffin pan with 12 large baking cups.
- Blend all ingredients together, except for the jackfruit.
- Add in jackfruit and mix just enough to break the jackfruit down. It does not need to be smooth.
- Place mixture into pre-lined muffin pan.
- Bake for 30 minutes.
I pre-bleneded all ingredients and added in the Jackfruit last.
Still have my scrubs on from work… LOL. I was just so excited to bake this recipe!!!
- Any food processor should be able to handle this recipe. I used Breville Sous Chef.
- I prefer using unbleached muffin cups by If You Care.
- For thicker muffins, fill only 8 muffin liners vs 12.
JUST EAT REAL FOOD – Stop focusing on calories & focus on what you’re eating and how it makes you feel. Your body is always giving you signals, but many times we ignore them. Pay attention if you develop nausea, gas, bloating, abdominal pain, diarrhea, constipation, headaches, joint pain, rashes, sinus problems, or cold sores. If you develop any of these things after eating, it’s a good indicator that your body is giving you a clue to stop consuming something in your food. Many times these symptoms come from consuming chemicals, artificial coloring, and preservatives. Other times these symptoms can occur from a food allergy or sensitivity. Pay attention. Creating a food diary is a really great way to help you figure out what your triggers are. Food elimination diets are a great way to figure out what your triggers are.
