Easy and healthy Almond Muffins Recipe with ground almonds, whole wheat flour and fresh of frozen blueberry or cherry. They are gone in 1 day every time I bake them.

We are so much more of a muffin than a cake family. These almond muffins are gone within 24 hours every time.

They are not your traditional whole wheat muffins like healthy apple muffins or healthy pumpkin muffins. Made with half ground almonds (almond meal), half whole wheat flour and a generous amount of coconut flakes, you better believe me when I say these muffins turn out fluffy and moist.

  1. Really great muffins! I just made them this morning. I actually came to look up your spelt chocolate bread recipe that I really love, and these muffins caught my eye. The only thing I changed as I was out of whole wheat flour- I used sprouted spelt flour in its place in 1:1 proportion. I used a mix of frozen blueberries, black currants and cherries. Definately a keeper!

    1. Yay. I love that bread too! Spelt and whole wheat are totally interchangeable. I live the the lighter texture spelt yields. Lately I can’t find affordable organic spelt flour but I love it. Enjoy!

  2. 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! 🙂

  3. 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 😉

    1. 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
