This recipe for Almond Flour Muffins comes to you from my friend Dale. When I first read her recipe I thought, “These are going to be little hockey pucks.” Not so! In fact, they’re the opposite. It must be the nut flour, which incidentally, makes these muffins gluten free.
When I’ve made similar muffins using traditional flour, they’re dense and chewy the next day. But cold from the fridge, these almond flour muffins are delicate and sweet – though they have no refined sugar, just bananas and dates. And at about 200 calories, they’re a light and filling breakfast or snack.
You’ll get 16-18 generous almond flour muffins from this recipe. I like to cook them 6 at a time, freezing extra batter portioned into paper liners ready to bake. I pop them into a muffin tin from the freezer, cover it with plastic wrap, and let them thaw in the refrigerator overnight. In the morning I bake them and store any leftover muffins in the refrigerator. They’re even better the next day.
How to Make Almond Flour Muffins
Step 1: In a large bowl whisk together almond flour, shredded coconut, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.

Step 4: In a standard muffin pan, fill paper liners 2/3 full.
Step 5: Bake 25 to 30 minutes at 350˚F, until muffin tops are set.
