These almond flour blueberry muffins are paleo, gluten free, dairy free, and so delicious!

This recipe took me quite a few times to get right, but I wanted them to be PERFECT. Let’s just say I may take a break from eating blueberry muffins for the next little long while. 😂

These almond flour muffins are:

refined sugar free
healthy
easy
as good as a bakery!

Almond flour blueberry muffins lack gluten – which is what gives bread and baked goods its elastic quality. I found that a mix of flours were best for this recipe and gave me the closest bread-like texture.

For these paleo blueberry muffins I used a combination of almond flour, arrowroot powder, and coconut flour.  I’m so pleased with how the texture came out for a gluten free muffin, and I think you will be too!

Almond Flour Blueberry Muffins – Ingredients

  • Blanched almond flour – a common gluten free baking flour. Especially popular with paleo baking. It’s high in fat and fiber. Be sure not to confuse almond flour with almond meal.
  • Arrowroot powder – a great flour to use in combination with almond flour.
  • Coconut flour – just a little is needed to give these healthy blueberry muffins a great texture like that of a muffin made with gluten.
  • Baking soda – gives these gluten free blueberry muffins their muffin top. Be sure not to use baking powder!
  • Salt – I recommend using pure sea salt! Normal table salt is processed with framaldehyde. And we don’t want that in our bodies. 🙂
  • Honey – the perfect sweetener for these almond flour blueberry muffins. If you need keto muffins, I bet these would work with lakanto maple syrup. Subbing coconut sugar won’t work for this recipe.
  • Vanilla – gives these almond flour blueberry muffins some depth of flavor.
  • Eggs – I haven’t tried substituting flax eggs. But let me know in the comments if you give it a try!
  • Avocado oil – I love this oil for it’s high fat content and neutral flavor. But feel free to substitute coconut oil if you’d like.
  • Blueberries – an essential ingredient in this blueberry muffin recipe 🙂 I use and recommend fresh blueberries but I’ve had readers who’ve used frozen blueberries and they said they turned out great!

Almond Flour Blueberry Muffins – How To Make

  1. Mix the dry ingredients together – almond flour, arrowroot, coconut flour, baking soda, and salt.
  2. Add the eggs, honey, vanilla, and oil and stir until it’s evenly combined.
  3. Gently stir in the fresh blueberries.
  4. Scoop the batter into the muffin tin filling each compartment about 3/4 of the way full.  I absolutely LOVE these muffin liners!
  5. Bake the muffins at 350℉ for 20-22 minutes until golden brown and the top is firm to the touch.  (20  minutes was perfect in my oven but all ovens vary.)
  6. Remove the muffins from the tin and place them on a cooling rack and let them come to room temperature before eating.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1/3 cup arrowroot powder
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/3 cup + 2 tablespoons honey (level off the honey with the back of a knife)
  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 heaping cup fresh blueberries

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 350° and line a muffin tin with baking cups.
  • Mix the almond flour, arrowroot powder, coconut flour, baking soda, and salt together in a mixing bowl.
  • Add the eggs, honey, vanilla, and oil and stir until it's evenly combined with no lumps.

  • Scoop the batter into the muffin tin filling each compartment about 3/4 of the way full.
  • Bake the muffins at 350℉ for 20-25 minutes until golden brown and the top is firm to the touch. 20 minutes was the magic number in my oven but all ovens vary so watch them closely.

NOTES

Be sure to level off your honey so you don't add any more than what the recipe calls for. 
I absolutely LOVE these muffin liners!

    I was scared, but hopeful, when making this recipe… I had tried another paleo blueberry muffin before and it wasn’t great. These are the real deal! They taste so close to a standard muffin, but so much better because they’re healthy! No guilt. I pack these in my kids’ lunches, too.

    I did a search for “paleo blueberry muffins” on Pinterest and yours was one of the first to come up. I liked the ingredients, so I decided to give them a try. SO glad I did! I had to sub coconut oil and frozen blueberries because that’s what I had on hand, but they turned out amazingly! I am so happy with them. Will definitely revisit this recipe often! Thank you!
