These healthy Almond Muffins are packed with fruits and topped with almond flakes for a treat that tastes a little like a berry Bakewell! The almond muffins are dense yet moist – and packed with flavor for a healthy, wholesome breakfast or dessert!

Plus, they’re not the only almond flour-based muffins I’ve made. Check out these almond flour banana muffins and zucchini muffins for more delicious bakes!

Almond Muffins

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.

A touch of almond extract adds bold almond flavor without being too much. And berries… They are a wonderful replacement for chocolate chips. Adding natural sweetness, moisture and colour. You can use fresh or frozen cherries, blueberries or blackberries (mix).

These almond flavoured muffins are OMG delicious! Pinky promise.

In fact, since I first made these, I’ve fallen down the rabbit hole of almond flour baking and can’t stop. Almond flour cake, chocolate cake, carrot cake, waffles, brownies, and pancakes. In fact, I have over 20 almond flour recipes now on IFoodReal!
