gluten free Muffins with dried tropical fruit (Pawpaw Muffins)

  • Author: Lindsay Cotter
  • Total Time: 35 minutes
  • Yield: 8 1x


“Pawpaw” is kiwi talk for Papaya


  • 1/4c pure cream
  • egg
  • 1 1/3 cup chickpea flour
  • 1/2 cup peanut flour or almond flour
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • vanilla
  • 1 tbsp. coconut butter
  • 1/2 cup water
  • lime sweetened dried papaya or mango
  • sweetener (like stevia, honey, etc.) –optional
  • additional spices (like cinnamon, nutmeg, etc.)- optional


  1. Combine dry ingredients in one bowl and egg/cream in another. Add your water to your dry ingredient first then whisk in your egg and cream. Add any extra sweeteners of choice. I did not use any but stevia or honey will make them more sweet. Scoop your batter into muffins pans filling them 3/4 way to top. Then add your papaya on the top center of each muffin filling. I also left some without fruit. Both were good!
  2. Bake at 180C or 365F for about 15-18 minutes or until golden brown. Be sure to check the middle to see if the batter has set. Cool for 5 minutes. Enjoy!
