Instructions

Preheat the oven to 325 F and insert muffin liners into a 12-cup muffn tin. Spray each liner with the avocado oil.

 In a small saucepan over low heat, combine the strawberries, maple syrup, and chia seeds. Simmer, stirring occasionally, for 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool. In a medium bowl, whisk together the ghee, eggs, honey, nut milk, and vanilla ex- tract and set aside.

In another bowl, thoroughly combine the almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients while stirring. Be sure the mixture is thoroughly combined. Pour the batter into the muffn cups, filling halfway. Spoon in 1 teaspoon of the strawberry compote, then top with another 1 tablespoon of the batter. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until a toothpick or thin-bladed knife inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.
