A rosewater and pistachio flavoured muffin made with coconut flour. Flavours of the Middle East in a moist muffin. Gluten free and low carb.
I love the flavour combination of rose and pistachio and I love a good coconut flour muffin. So I combined them all for a lovely light but flavour-some muffin. Makes a nice taste change too. This is my favourite coconut flour muffin/cake recipe. It's easy to make and is a light, fluffy cake. Who needs that nasty wheat stuff when you have coconut flour?!!
I only used ¼ cup of pistachio nuts but you might want to add more if you want a really nutty muffin. Do not go too crazy with the rose water as it has a strong flavour. The aroma of these muffins making was glorious. I love it when food doubles up as an air freshener. You can't say that about cooking onions, or sadly cauliflower.

I've not cooked with rose water yet but I almost made Marzipan which called for It (£OVE Marzipan, but too much sugar). THIS may be The Recipe that gets me going with It, though! I MUST find Really Good Pistachios~ I'm very picky about them, but this gives me the Purrfect Excuse to buy them.
Now, does This Say: Makes 5~66 muffins? Just How Many muffin tins will I NEED for 66 muffins? HAA HAA ;~}
LOL! It 5 to 6 muffins! Hope you enjoy them. I used to love marzipan too!
How many eggs? None noted in the ingredients section but it calls them. Thanks!
It's 3. I updated the recipe in a new format and the eggs disappeared! Thanks for letting me know about this. Hope you enjoy the recipe!
Tried this recipe this morning. It was very easy and tastes great. I made 5 muffins and baked them at 190 C in a fan forced oven for 20 mins - I think the temp was a little hot. I will also reduce the rosewater next time - just to suit my tastes. I'm trying baking with coconut flour for the first time. Thanks for the time you are taking to create yummy food 🙂
Thanks Elly! So glad you enjoyed them! And welcome to the wonderful world of coconut flour baking!
