The Best Almond Flour Blueberry Muffins

I’m so in love with this recipe! Working with almond flour can be tricky. If you follow this recipe the way it is laid out you will be thrilled with the results.

I made these in the mini muffin tins. For me personally I love having smaller portions that add up to my serving size. It really makes me feel like I’m having more and also draws more attention to my fullness level. I actually end up eating less when I use smaller portions, eat slower and enjoy the flavors of the food!

I highly suggest you make this recipe. Then, come back and tell me how much you love it! I know you will!

  • Kara

    awesome thanks for sharing :)
    I tried adding some dark chocolate pieces on top– super good. I also cheated and used butter, because it was my first time using almond meal, and I was afraid to go all the way healthy lol.
    Instead of apple cider vinegar I subbed a splash of white vinegar, but might skip it next time. I also used a little bit of agave, maple flavored agave and honey totaling almost a forth of a cup. I will absolutely be making these again!

    I just made them exactly like the recipe…Perfect! I am in heaven right now.  The vinegar gives them a sourdough or buttermilk hint…yum!

      Aren’t these good!? Hope you’re having a great day!

    My boys and I needed something to do on this rainy day so we made these muffins (along with a few other recipes on this site).  I used our homemade almond flour (dried and ground from the left over pulp from our Almond Milk).  I think that threw the texture off a bit but I was really happy with the taste of these muffins.  My boys (ages 11 and 5) wanted a little more  of a sweet taste to them so I might sprinkle some raw sugar on the top for them the next time.  

    • http://www.damyhealth.com Amy Layne

      Hi Portia!

      So happy you loved them! Great idea with the homemade almond flour. Isn’t the taste so nice?!

        I love your website!!! Its the best!!!! Are you using blanched almond flour? I read that toxins exist in the unblanched almonds. thanks!!!

  • Vdiane Cross

    How can I make these vegan????

    • kate

      egg replacers at whole foods work great!It comes in a box in the cooking isle:)

      • aiti

        what is the nutration value per muffin?

        • Jennifer K

          According to my calculations (using large muffing tin) each muffin contains: 169 calories, 11.2G carbohydrates, 7.3G Sugar (can reduce this by using stevia instead of agave), and 5.75G of protein. I was going to try it with coconut flour next time to reduce the calories, but that would also reduce the protein; give and take…

    Thanks so much for a great recipe!  My family loved it!

  • Marcus

    I like them! Made them with raspberry jam rather than blueberries (a lot less than a whole cup though) and added some extra sugar + margarine :)

    These are great! And so easy!

    • http://www.damyhealth.com Amy Layne

      That is so great to hear Jennifer :) Thank you for sharing the love!

  • kate

    can I use one cup oat flour as I only have one cup of almond flour left? thanks

  • kate

    i heard that you can use lemon juice in place of apple cider vinegar and just double, instead of the vinegar ?

  • kate

    I am vegan so could I use egg replacers? thanks!

  • Nancy

    This is a very good recipe! I used raw honey and had to substitute white vinegar for apple cider vinegar but they still came out great. I’ve tried other almond flour muffin recipes but this one beats them all (not too much egg flavor and a little more airy). Next time I will use a little less honey (I used a little more than the recipe calls for). I like the natural sweetness of the blueberries and the final texture. Thanks for sharing!

  • Elizabeth Resnick

    These are amazing! Just made them today. I followed the recipe and used honey as the sweenter. One question…if I were to use stevia instead, how much should I use? I have a liquid stevia (Nu Stevia brand) that is really good, but since it is so concentrated and I would only need a little bit, I’m afraid they might not be as moist.

  • Elizabeth Resnick

    These muffins are amazing! I followed the recipe, except I think I added a little extra coconut oil, and they are delicious. I used honey, but was wondering about substituting stevia. I have a liquid stevia (NuNaturals brand) that I really like. Just wondering how that would throw off the recipe since it would just take a few dropperfuls to sweeten the entire batch. Would I need to add extra liquid somewhere else?
    Or could I use a quarter cup of xylitol to sweeten? Would I need to add more liquid then?
    Just discovered your site when looking for a good almond flour muffin recipe. Will definitely try your other recipes.

  • XOMBIEOCTOPUS

    What are the calories per muffin? Just curious! :)

  • Dana

    Yum! We are paleo eaters and in looking for a replacement for bread, found this recipe. Followed the recipe exactly (used agave) and they were sweeter than I anticipated, in a good way! This will be our new go-to for blueberry muffins. Thank you!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100003331950552 Dannette C. Key

    I just made these…….OMG they are fabulous! This is the first time I have ever used Almond Flour and I love it….love the taste, the smell! I used Maple Syrup for sweetener and I do have stevia, but it’s in the packet form and I didn’t know how much to use. I also cut the recipe in 1/2 because I live alone and I didn’t want to have 12 muffins sitting around tempting me. Incredible recipe, thank you very much. I love your site, almost everything I eat is from the recipes I have found here. You have sure changed my life!

  • http://www.facebook.com/cynthia.piper.180 Cynthia Piper

    Just made them for the first time. I used blueberry honey as the sweetener and replaced the cider vinegar with apple cider vinegar with manuka honey – very delicious.

    I just tried another recipe and it was ok…this sounds sooo much better and can’t wait to try it. I am new to a lot of these ingredients, having always used the standard white flour, white sugar, etc. My question is I purchased the coconut oil and it is solid, do I need to liquidity it before mixing or put in the processor as is? Thanks

    • http://www.damyhealth.com Amy Layne

      These are amazing you will love them. No, so not per melt the coconut oil in any of my recipes unless listed. It will naturally melt just enough the the process. Enjoy!

      • http://twitter.com/dorilaptop Dorene Engel

        Thank you so much for your quick reply. You are right these are the best muffins I’ve ever had. I did change one thing, I am a sugar addict and have to stay away from even the Stevia, so I used unsweetened applesauce. Going to try them with other fruit next!

  • Stephms82

    Could I use organic Raw Honey as the sweetener instead of regular honey? Also could I go half Coconut Flour?

      Hummmm I really don’t know how that would go! Give it a try :)

  • Alan Dharma

    Is it possible to skip the “egg whites” part and still does not affect the outcome? Can I use baking powder instead of baking soda? Thanks.

    • http://www.damyhealth.com Amy Layne

      I have not tried this so I really can not tell you. It is something I will add to my list to try out.

  • Cindy

    Made these this afternoon, my first gluten-free/dairy-free/sugar-free attempt, and I must say, this recipe made me look good! These muffins were delicious! My husband also approved :) I followed the exact recipe, with maple syrup instead of agave (personal preference).
    Thanks for the great recipe. Will definitely make again!

  • luann

    Did the recipe exactly but,seems not like batter very dry maybe, the blueberries will hold it together?

    • http://www.damyhealth.com Amy Layne

      I couldn’t tell you. I have not had this experience. Make sure you follow the recipe as is and also that all your ingredients are fresh.

  • amy

    If I use the white powder stevia, how much to I use?

    • http://www.damyhealth.com Amy Layne

      It depends on the brand! I follow the suggested measure conversions on the back of the box. They always have them there. So for here for each table spoon of liquid sugar I used I would look up what the measure for 1 TBSP of stevia I would use. I find the brands differ so you have to be careful. Less is always more with stevia and their guidelines are always best.

  • Annalicia Bravo

    Did you use fresh blueberries or can you use thawed frozen blueberries?

    • http://www.damyhealth.com Amy Layne

      You can use either! Enjoy!

      • http://www.damyhealth.com Amy Layne

        Just not that using thawed frozen will make your muffins more “blue” in colour. But they all taste the same.

  • Rebecca

    I noticed that the moderator of this blog answered all the “I loved these” comments but none of the “how can I make this work for me?” comments. Kinda reflects badly as so many people have different dietary needs and are looking for ways to make an obviously great recipe fit their needs.

  • sue

    I used coconut sugar instead but had to add a bit of water, they are amazing!

  • Nicole

    These were really good!! I’ve tried several gluten free type muffin recipes and this was the best by far. I have a major sweet tooth so next time I might also add a dash of pure stevia for a little added sweetness. I used honey, EVOO and because I can’t eat egg yolks I used a flax substitute (2T ground flax & 6T water boiled together for 5min) for the whole eggs.

  • naturalstyles

    Hello! I made these tonight because my husband wanted blueberry muffins, but I cannot have gluten! This is a great recipe!! I grind my own almonds for almond meal, and leave it a little courser grind so it is not like a flour. The texture of the almonds pairs so very well with the sweetness of the raw orange blossom honey that I got from Florida when I was there. Then the blueberries….true heaven!! It almost tastes like a whole wheat muffin. Thank you so very much for posting this recipe! These are so delicious! Can’t wait until the hubby comes home so he can try one!

    I baked these and there were flavourless and small. Recipe needs sugar at least.
    Dusappointed with these.

  • Penny

    I made these this morning and used xylitol as my sweetener. I cut the recipe in half because I didn’t want to waste any more ingredients than I had to in case they weren’t good. They were delicious! This is definitely a keeper and one I’ll share with others! Thanks! Can’t wait to look at more of your recipes!

    Added fiber and flavor. I was missing the fiber, as much as I love these muffins. Tonight I substituted one cup Fiber One cereal for one cup of almond meal and the result was awesome! Great taste and texture and an additional 2 grams of fiber per muffin. Fiber One does have a small amount of Aspartame so you could use any high fiber natural cereal.

  • Alanah

    These were amazing! I’m gluten intolerant and health conscious and have been looking for a delicious muffin recipe – i’ve found it! I made a batch last night and I’m already looking forward to snack time so i can have another! This is going to be my base recipe.. I’m going to try lemon and passionfruit next.. maybe a banana and date version :) You’ve got me excited and inspired! xx

    Just made these as my first attempt to good gluten-free. Pretty good! I think I will put them in for 2 or 3 minutes less, as my muffin bottoms were a little bit too brown and will use better quality blueberries. Thanks for the recipe.

    I loved them. But I altered them into Banana /date muffins instead of blueberry at the urging of my child. I checked them about 4 minutes early. They were done.

    Hi Amy,

    did you use almond meal for this recipe or the “real” almond flour which contains less fat und calories? I’m surching for good recipes that use almond flour and not just ground almonds. Thanks for answering my question :)

    • http://www.damyhealth.com Amy Layne

      I have used both! This one was done with almond flour. Enjoy

  • Christina Hernandez

    Do you know if these are freezable? Usually when I try to do 1/2 a recipe things don’t work out. It would be nice to freeze them for later.

  • Shan

    anyone know the nutritional information on these? Thanks!

  • Melissa

    I substituted stevia instead of the honey. Since stevia tends to be overly sweet I used 10 packets. Next time I make these muffins I will definitely use the honey, I wasn’t a fan of the stevia in this recipe.

  • Jay

    Love this recipe!! Instead of agave, and because of all the bananas I usually have around, I use a mashed banana and a couple splashes of almond milk as a substitute. Thank you!

    • http://www.damyhealth.com Amy Layne

      Great Jay!

  • Karen G

    Quick easy healthy muffins ever. Had one sub, I used 1/4 cup of xylitol. Thank you so much for posting. We love them!

      So glad you loved them!

  • Enid R

    I tried these yesterday and I was so pleased to find a base recipe to make muffins with, they were truly delicious, although I used a sugar maple syrup instead of the honey, they were moist and the girls in my office loved them! Am going to try them with bananas next!

    • http://www.damyhealth.com Amy Layne

      Sounds great Enid!

  • Bec

    I made these yesterday and although they are quite moist and delicious, after working out that EACH MUFFIN weighs in at a whopping 356 calories and 26 grams of fat I can safely say that my waistline doesn’t thank me at all. I’ll be giving away the rest of my muffins and sadly trashing a delicious recipe since they are far too fattening even for special occasions. :(

  • Nicole

    are these muffins freezable?

  • Nicole

    I really loved these muffins! they had a corn bread texture, which is really great. I made them into 12 normal size muffins instead, and ate 3 right away since they were so good!

  • Tina

    These truly are amazing. I love them with blueberries but made them today with apples (added 2 tbsp. of flax meal as well as 1 tsp. cinnamon) for an even lower glycemic snack. Thank you!

    My muffins are terrible :( I had to make 2 modifications: I followed the vegan recipe and since I only had 1 cup of almond flour on hand, I subbed in 1 cup of whole wheat flour. My muffins are completely flavorless and terrible texture. Big disappointment!

    • http://www.damyhealth.com Amy Layne

      Hey Kelsey! Sounds like the modifications you decided to use caused your recipe not to turn out. If you follow the recipe as is, (vegan or not) the recipe turns out yummy :)

  • Linda

    Awesome and you were right-one of the best recipes I have ever had, and I bake a lot!!! Thank you so much!!! Love them!!!!

  • Bekah

    If making them vegan do you add 1/4 applesauce and 1tsp baking soda for each whole egg? And do you replace the egg white with something?

  • Jenny

    How many calories are there per muffin?

  • BeckyH

    Just made these – used almond meal and frozen blueberries – and they’re delicious! Hubby, 2yr old and 5yr old daughters all agreed and wanted seconds! Will need to make a double batch next time, great recipe :-)

  • candy

    My batter has the consistency of peanut butter cookie batter, & that’s AFTER i added a small amt of almond milk…there is not enough liquid to accommodate 2c almond flour

    • kristin

      are you sure you used almond flour, coconut flour usually creates that consistency because it requires 6 eggs to each cup
