Almond Flour Muffins (grain-free)

These grain-free almond flour muffins are fluffy and moist. They taste best if you add nuts or walnuts to them.

Notes on the ingredients 

Almond flour – This recipe will need blanched almond flour, not an almond meal. The powder-like consistency of the almond flour will yield the fluffiest muffins. My flour was medium consistency, not powdery, I still liked the muffins. They are still fluffy enough. If you use an almond meal (powdered whole almonds), the muffins may turn out dense and heavy.

Eggs – If you are using coconut oil, then you need to use room-temperature eggs.

Sweetener – You can use any granulated sweetener of your choice. It can be erythritol (which I don’t like), monk fruit sweetener, date sugar, coconut sugar, or others. I used coconut sugar.

Optional add-ons: You can add 1/4 cup of chocolate chips to make Chocolate chip muffins. Add 1/4 cup of shredded zucchini for Zucchini muffins. Replace 1 tablespoon of milk with 2 tablespoons of pumpkin puree for Pumpkin muffins.


Cover the cooled muffins and store them in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.

You can place them in a zip lock bag and freeze them for up to 6 months.

Streusel topping:
How to make Almond flour muffins:
  1. Preheat the oven to 350F/180C. Grease 12 muffin cups.
  2. Prepare the streusel topping by mixing all the ingredients in a bowl until crumbly. Set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl or a food processor bowl, add the dry ingredients (almond flour, baking powder, sweetener, salt). Mix. Add the wet ingredients (eggs, milk, melted butter/coconut oil). Mix until well incorporated.
  4. Scoop with a spoon or an ice cream scoop into greased muffin cups.
  5. Top with the streusel topping. Crumble the topping with your fingers over each muffin cup.
  6. Bake the muffins for 22 minutes or until a wooden stick comes out clean. I baked them in my small toaster oven for 20 minutes.
