Start by preheating your oven and lining a 12-cup muffin pan with paper baking liners.

In a large mixing bowl, mix together the almond flour and baking soda. You can add a little salt if you’d like. I was in a hurry and just didn’t think about it.

Add the eggs, coconut milk, honey, orange juice, orange zest, and vanilla to the bowl and whisk or stir until well combined.

I used unsweetened coconut milk, but you could probably use regular milk or almond milk.

The fresh orange zest and juice really does add a lot to these muffins so I strongly recommend not leaving it out. It helps gives these muffins a nice fresh flavor.

You can try other substitutions such as other sweeteners but know your muffins may or may not turn out. I have only made the muffins as written and have not tested all possible substitutions.

Once you have your blueberry muffin batter together, scoop it into the pan and bake for about 15-20 minutes. The muffins should be golden brown around edges and a toothpick inserted into the middle should come out clean.

How to Make Almond Flour:

You can make homemade almond flour by pulsing raw blanched almonds in a food processor or strong blender until very fine crumbs.

HOWEVER, you generally can not make almond flour as fine as commercial products. For baked goods, I prefer purchasing almond flour such as Honeyville or Kirkland.

I strongly suggest using a commercial almond flour for this recipe.

Carbs in Almond Flour:

Almond flour and wheat flour are not interchangeable so be careful when substituting one for the other.

Check the labels of your almond flour and wheat flours for specific nutrition and carb information as it may vary slightly between brands.

The carbs in almond flour is about 6 grams per 1/4 cup, compared to all-purpose flour that has 23 grams per 1/4 cup.

Back to these Almond Flour Blueberry Muffins… These gluten-free muffins freeze great! I made a big batch, and froze them in resealable bags. Then defrosted them in the microwave. You can also defrost them in the fridge overnight or in a container on the counter overnight.

They are the best for breakfast or a quick snack! You could even top them with a little whipped cream or fruit sauce for a fun treat. Or a little yogurt or ice cream would be great too!

I hope this goes without saying, but almond flour is made of NUTS. Therefore, be mindful of anyone who may have a serious nut allergy.

We LOVED these muffins! Please note that these are a lower carb muffin alternative to bakery style muffins. These do NOT taste like big bakery style type muffins with almonds or almond extract. They are delicious nonetheless, but if you’re looking for a big bakery style type muffin, this is not them.

Notes

SNAPPY TIPS: Make a big batch and freeze the muffins for a quick breakfast. Weigh the almond flour if you can as each type can vary slightly. If you don’t have a scale since every almond flour is a little different use the nutritional info on the back of the package to determine how many cups equals 8 ounces for that particular brand.

SNAPPY SUBSTITUTIONS: Instead of coconut milk you could use regular milk or almond milk. I used fresh blueberries, but you could use defrosted frozen blueberries. Just be careful folding them in so that they don’t turn the whole batter blue.
