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 1/4 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 ;~}

    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 🙂
