I love using almond butter as the base for my muffins. The flavor is phenomenal. They mix up quickly and easily. And you’re getting more protein in your muffin than a traditional flour base. Win-Win-Win!

My kids gobbled these muffins up, and so did I! Nutritious muffins are my thing.

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare a regular muffin tin for 10 muffins by lining with paper or silicone muffin liners.

Substitutions

  • Use any nut or seed butter in place of the almond butter
  • Don’t have coconut flour? Use almond flour but double the amount
  • Any fresh berry would work well in place of the blueberries
  • Sprinkle some chopped nuts on top for a nice crunch

Best way to store your almond butter blueberry muffins

These muffins store really well in the fridge. You may notice they get a little sticky when stored in the fridge, but it helps to retain so much moisture.

Can you freeze muffins?

Cool muffins fully before freezing. Place a sheet of parchment paper on a baking sheet. Put muffins on parchment, without touching. 

Once fully frozen, transfer muffins to a freeze bag, label and date, and store in the freezer for up to 6 months.

Here’s how to defrost muffins to eat

Either remove the number of mini muffins you want to eat, and place in the fridge to defrost overnight. Then simply place them on the counter to come to room temperature.

Or, if defrosting from frozen here’s what to do. Place muffins on a baking sheet and in a 300-degree oven until warmed through.
