These almond muffins are not your traditional whole wheat muffin! Made with almond flour (just ground up almonds and no worries I won’t be switching to arrowroot powder or tapioca starch any time soon), organic almond extract and coconut flakes, these Berry Almond Muffins turned out exceptionally fluffy and OMG delicious!!! The edges reminded me of a cake my mom used to make with very well whipped eggs, butter and flour. Same crunch.

In the past 2 weeks I made these almond muffins 3 times and every time they were gone in 1 day! I also made them into a coffee cake but for some reason my kids wouldn’t eat it. Huh?! Just the concept of muffins is half deal done. We are so much more muffin family than anything cake. Weird, oh well..

It is strawberry season and I finally found local organic strawberries. 4 of us ate 20 lbs of them in 4 days. I have been thinking a lot about making this recipe into upside down strawberry coffee cake or just with strawberries on top, and came to a conclusion we are such raw strawberry people! We just eat strawberries and don’t really like to cook them. However, I used strawberries twice this season in a cobbler and crumble recipes.

So, for the almond muffins I went with my never failing me frozen organic berries. You don’t have to thaw them and ANY berries really work, even fresh.

About a month ago, I purchased this glass top (um, no idea whatever its official name is) and then a flat platter, and now snacks are easy to grab for all high maintenance people in my house. On another hand, my green countertops are starting to drive me nuts more and more. They really have to go this Fall. My pictures turn out green. Can’t wait! Alex, hurry up with your deck. I know you just don’t wanna put kids to bed, take them to Bday parties, wash their bumps or feed them.

Berry Almond Muffins

Berry Almond Muffins

Ingredients

Directions

  1. In a large mixing bowl, add eggs through salt and whisk well to combine, making sure baking powder and soda have dissolved. Add coconut flakes, almond meal and whole wheat flour; stir gently to mix and do not over mix. Add 1 cup berries and give a few stirs.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and line muffin tin with liners or use silicone muffin tin (I used both and didn't spray anything). Using large ice cream scoop, fill 12 openings with batter and spread remaining 1 cup of berries on top. Gently press berries into the batter and sprinkle with sliced almonds. Bake for 34 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean and tops are golden brown. Remove from the oven and let muffins cool in the tin for at least 30 minutes before transferring onto a cooling rack to cool off completely.
  3. Storage Instructions: Store in a glass airtight container in a cool dry place for up to 3 - 4 days, in a fridge for up to a week or in a freezer for up to 3 months.

Notes

*Skip or use less (as much as you want) for lower in fat muffins.

    These look delicious! I can’t wait to make them. My family prefers muffins overs cakes too…maybe it’s the grab and go convenience 😉

      Yeah, probably the concept of individually contained snack, like a bar vs. granola in a baggie. Or like a cupcake, essentially it is a cake but kids love cupcakes! I can’t stand them LOL

    I have to comment because these muffins were just that good! If anyone is scrolling through these comments and not sure if they should make them…make them! They are so so good. I’m impressed with how moist they are inside. Olena you rock! 🙂
