GF Tangerine Blender Muffins

For this muffin recipe we will be using the whole tangerine, what? Yes, we are using the whole fruit. Before starting to make the muffin batter we need to simmer the tangerine for about 30 mins to an hour, to remove the bitterness found in the skin. Sorry not a super quick recipe, but these muffins are soooo good that this extra step is worth it. As with most of my baked goods recipes, these muffins aren’t super sweet, so feel free to increase the amount of honey/sugar to ½ cup instead of ¼ cup of honey.

Makes: 12 muffins Prep time: 45 mins + Cooking time: 16 mins + Total time: 1 hour +


8 oz whole tangerines (to make the tangerine puree)

2 eggs

¼ cup honey and if you have a sweet tooth use ½ cup of honey

3 tablespoon olive oil

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 ¼ cup almond flour

¼ cup pre cooked cornmeal (Harina PAN)

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

¼ teaspoon salt


  1. First let’s make the tangerine puree:

    1. Wash the whole tangerines

    2. Place the tangerines in a pot and cover with water

    3. Bring to a boil and simmer for about 30 minutes to an hour

    4. Drain and discard the water

    5. Let the tangerines to cool down

    6. Slice the boiled tangerines and remove any seeds and discards

    7. Process the tangerines in a blender or food processor until completely smooth

    8. You can make this the day before

    9. Once the tangerine pure is done:

  2. Preheat the oven to 350 F

  3. Line a muffin pan with muffin liners or line a small baking dish with parchment paper

  4. Add the tangerine puree and wet ingredients to the blender

  5. Blend until combine

  6. Add the rest of the ingredients

  7. Blend until a smooth batter forms, stopping to scrape down and stir the ingredients as needed. I like using a rubber spatula.

  8. Fill each muffin tin no more than ¾ of the way to the top

  9. Bake at 350 F for about 16 minutes

  10. Insert a wooden toothpick on the center of the muffin and if it comes out clean or with few crumbles it means that is done!

  11. Let it to cool down before eating
