These Easy Almond Flour Muffins are what I like to call my “secret weapon” breakfast recipe.  School has been back in session for a while now here, so back to cooking and baking for me! Yay!  These Easy Almond Flour Muffins really are super quick and easy to make and it also happens to be a gluten-free and dairy-free recipe.  But don’t worry, even if you don’t care about gluten-free and dairy-free,  they are still a great breakfast or snack option.  I make these muffins in big batches, freeze them, then top the muffins with some fruit and I’m full for hours!! I also have a similar recipe for Tropical Mango Muffins that are also made with almond flour that you may enjoy.

Baking with almond flour can be a little tricky since it’s not really flour. What is almond flour? It’s really just ground up almonds. If you’re wondering how to make almond flour, you can make homemade almond flour by grinding almonds in a food processor. BUT but I don’t really recommend it for baked goods. Homemade doesn’t generally get as finely chopped as most commercial brands so your results for baked good will be very different. If you’re wondering where to buy almond flour, you can find it at most grocery stores, BUT it’s generally not with the baking stuff.  I’ve usually found it with the healthy or organic packaged goods.  You can also find it online.  I’ve been using Honeyville super fine almond flour lately and have been ordering it online. Different almond flours will have different results with these muffins as some almond flours are not as fine. I highly suggest a finely ground almond flour.

I always get a lot of requests for Paleo recipes. I’m not much of a Paleo expert, but I’m fairly sure these are Paleo friendly muffins. Unfortunately, I don’t have any “action” shots for this Easy Almond Flour Muffin recipe but you really don’t need any.  Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl.  I highly recommend using a scale to weigh the almond flour. I love this scale (<—- click to see the one I have from Amazon). Line a cupcake pan with paper liners and fill with batter.  Bake, cook, cool, then place on a large cookie sheet (pictured above) if you want to freeze them.

Easy Almond Flour Muffins | snappygourmet.comOnce the muffins are frozen, place them in a sealable bag and just take a few out at a time to defrost.  Have these Easy Almond Flour Muffins as-is or top with some fruit or fruit sauce.  I like to place some defrosted California strawberries in a blender for a quick sugar-free sauce.  Top with a little whipped cream (or don’t if you want a dairy-free treat…) and you have strawberry shortcake for breakfast!! This is one of my favorite recipes with almond flour and lower carb and can be made Pale, gluten-free, and dairy-free.

I should warn you….these are NOT like your favorite bakery’s almond muffins.  These  Almond Flour Muffins are meant to be more like a healthy breakfast option that will fill you up and not like a regular flour almond muffin from a bakery. So if you’re expecting a HUGE flaky sugar filled muffin, you may be disappointed.  Not to say they’re NOT good; they’re just a bit different and may take a little getting used to.

Gluten-free & Dairy-free muffins that fill you up for hours! NOTE: These are meant to be a higher protein and lower carb/sugar muffin and are not like almond muffins with regular flour that you would get a bakery. Making changes or substitutions to the recipes could greatly affect end results.
  • 8 ounces (WEIGHED or see notes) almond flour (I use Honeyville finely ground almond flour)
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 eggs
  • ¼ cup almond milk
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line muffin tin with paper liners.
  2. Mix together almond flour and baking soda in medium mixing bowl. Add eggs, almond milk, honey, and lemon juice until well combined. Spoon into paper liners.
  3. Bake muffins at 350 degrees F for about 14-17 minutes or until golden brown on top.
SNAPPY TIPS: Make a big batch and freeze the muffins for a quick breakfast. You can also top these muffins with fruit or fruit sauce. Weigh your almond flour or 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 almond milk you could use regular milk or coconut milk.

  1. Love how easy this recipe is Lisa!

  2. Great breakfast idea! This might actually get my teenager to interested enough in breakfast to get up a few minutes earlier so he has time to eat!

  3. These look fantastic! Can’t wait to try them.

  4. Can you use rice milk in place of almond milk? Or has anyone tried to. Thanks

    • Hi Brenda! To be honest, I have not used rice milk in this recipe. I don’t see why you couldn’t use it and if I had to take a guess I’m sure it would be fine.

  5. These are awful (for the waistline!!?!) ….. I’m munching away at my third one already this morning … I have to put the rest of them far, far away (until tomorrow!) … really easy to make, quick to cook and delicious too. Thank you…

  6. I was super excited and wanted to like these. They were dry, bland, and stuck to the papers. Definitely spray the papers…. Maybe add a box of blueberries next time?

    • Hi Monica! Sorry they didn’t turn out for you. I just made a big batch this week and they weren’t dry so not sure what went wrong. They definitely taste better with fruit on top. Like I posted above, I like to top them with strawberries or an unsweetened strawberry sauce (defrosted frozen strawberries in a blender).

  7. I am allergic to eggs can you send me an eggless version

    • Sorry, I don’t have another version at the moment.

    • Sundeep…you can use flax and water as a substitute for an egg, or they make egg-replacer.

    • Just made these. I’ll let you know if they turn out in a few minutes! I love a good paleo and dairy free recipe.

    • Rachie~Bakie says:

      Hey there! I don’t do eggs either and they tastes even BETTER when I did the egg substitution. (I tried both) Ground flax is a REMARKABLE sub for eggs. 1 tbs of ground golden flax seed per 3 tbs of water OR alternative milk. (That equals one egg, so triple for this recipe that calls for 3 eggs) Also since eggs help with the raising and “fluff” of a baked good I added 1/4 tsp baking POWDER in addition to the soda.

  8. Thank you so much for this recipe. I can’t eat corn so these are our “no-corn” bread go-to. I modified it a little and use 1/4 c coconut flour with 3/4 c almond flour. We also added strawberries to them last night and they are incredible. But what I love about them is that they are so easy.

    • Thank you so much Jill! Happy to hear you enjoy them! I also have a similar recipe on my page that you may enjoy for Tropical Mango Muffins that use coconut and almond flour.

  9. Can you add fruit directly into the batter before baking? To make a “blueberry” muffin?? How about a bit of vanilla extract?

  10. K Sanchez says:

    I was looking for a recipe with few ingredients. Looks like I just found the perfect recipe to try almond flour. What is the purpose of lemon juice? I can’t have any citrus. Can this be omitted? Thanks!

  11. I LOVE these! We have these a few times a month, both savory and sweet. I like putting cinnamon directly in the batter and using 3/4 c almond flour and 1/4 c flax seed meal, and then put coconut palm sugar on the top. When I make them exactly as the recipe states, we put homemade nutella and chia seed raspberry jam on top. So good! I also like to add Italian seasoning and parmesan or mozzarella cheese, its a delicious choice for those of us that can’t eat wheat.

  12. Rachie~Bakie says:

    Oh…. Ha I forgot to mention with my run-on self that this recipe is SUPERIOR to other gluten/dairy free almond flour muffins. SUPERIOR. It is deceiving at first because it IS SO simple you’re over thinking that they couldn’t possibly be better than the other 37 ingredient muffin you just poorer your entire pantry and afternoon into. But then WA-LA-LA sooooooo good! THANKS for posting!

  13. This is awesome! I love it. so simple and so good. Mine didn’t come out dry, it was very moist and yummy. I used the parchment paper muffin liners that I ordered off of amazon. They didn’t stick at all using them. I will be making these alot. Thank you.

  14. All I had was vanilla almond milk so I tried it and they smell like cupcakes! If I put icing on these, I think they could pass as cupcakes! These are AMAZING!

  15. Why so many eggs? I’m used to using one egg in muffin recipes.

  16. Is this 8 oz weighed or in a measuring cup?

    • It’s 8 ounces by weight. If you don’t have a scale I’d suggest using the nutritional info on the back of the package to determine how many cups 8 ounces equals for that particular brand.

  17. Just to be certain, for the flour, does it call for 1 cup?

    • No it’s 8 ounces by weight. If you don’t have a scale I’d suggest using the nutritional info on the back of the package to determine how many cups 8 ounces equals for that particular brand.

  18. I have tried several almond flour muffin recipies and this is by far my favorite! It’s easy and they are delicious. I have followed the recipie exactly and have at times also added my own touches. Definitely give this one a try!

  19. Love how easy these were! Best flour muffins I’ve had in a long time!

  20. This was my first attempt at gluten free muffins, and I think they turned out pretty good, nice and moist. I did make a few adjustments due to what I had on hand. I used the flax meal and water substitute another reviewer suggested since I didn’t have enough eggs, I also used unsweetened vanilla almond milk, a dash of vanilla, a little baking soda as was suggested, and to make them pretty, I sprinkled toasted almond slivers and a little raw sugar on top! Very tasty. When I get to the farm I will try this again with the eggs!

  21. Jennifer Gleason says:

    Hi Lisa, I made these today and they are delicious! I don’t know what that poor person did that made them dry but they were the best flour free muffins I’ve ever had! They are not too sweet but they can be sweeter if you want! And sooooo easy! Really good. Thanks for coming up with this recipe!

  22. Just made some with gluten free chocolate chips and they are fabulous!

  23. Thank you so much for posting. I thought I’d give some feedback–I think the lemon juice is what turned me off of the finished product. Granted, I just squeezed what I thought was the correct amount (bc I’ve done it plenty of times before), and I added cranberries, but it left me disappointed. Thought I’d weigh in if someone is wanting a muffin that is a little sweeter. (And I don’t eat much sugar). It also seemed really, eggy. Again, thanks for putting yourself out there and sharing with us!

    • Sorry you didn’t like them. They are definitely not for everyone. They are a bit eggy and meant to be a lower carb, higher protein version of a muffin rather than a regular flour bakery style muffin.

      • Amy Olsen says:

        Hey, no problem! BTW, my husband told me last night that he really liked your muffins. He put butter and jam on them and asked me to make them again. So win for you!

  24. These are my go to muffins! they never get old. I like to change it up sometimes with walnuts, pecans and maple syrup instead of honey. So good!
