    That looks really good! I normally use a Gluten Free all purpose blend like Glutino or Betty Crocker but the more of these recipes I see the more I am become less afraid to experiment with other flours!

      Jen, with all due respect, most of the manufactured GF flour blends are filled with empty carbs (white rice, potato starch, tapioca, corn starch, etc.) which means little or no nutrition and instant weight gain. Just because something says “GF” on the label, does NOT mean it’s healthy. I LOVE PALEO because it avoids ALL the crap from unhealthy grains. There is so much you can do with nut meals (almond, cashew, hazelnut), coconut flour, quinoa and buckwheat. Btw, quinoa and buckwheat are allowed on Paleo diets because they are considered pseudo-grains. Quinoa is actually a seed.
      When I do use grains, I go for the healthy ones (amaranth, millet, brown rice, oats). Check out Bob’s Red Mill single grains products, almond flour and coconut flour! Do your body good, live long, well and healthy!

      Amazon, Walmart (they carry Bob’s Red Mill brand), or other online sources like or Honeyville’s website. I find the cheapest is Amazon, where you can buy 5 lbs for just under $40.

    • Al says

      It can be ordered via Internet from numerous sources, such as Red Mill, but if you are in the middle of nowhere, but with a food coop or similar store, that is a good place to look. Such things are fortunately appearing in more and more chain grocery stores.

    • says

      Hello cbusch, it is called almond flour or almond meal (not powder). If you go online, you can also find it at or or Check them out and compare prices and choose what works best for you. It’s worth it to be healthy! Almonds are loaded with protein, healthy oil, and help lower cholesterol. Great for snacking too!

      We have a nut allergy in our home too. The All Purpose gluten free flour might be our best option. I think coconut flour would be too dense and strong in flavor for this recipe but I’m anxious to see what other ideas people have to replace almond flour!

    • Susan says

      I have also used amaranth flour successfully in my gluten-free/grain-free/nut-free recipes. Amaranth is a seed and can be used for Paleo purposes. Bob’s Red Mill is where I got mine. Being close to the middle-of-no-where, the internet is my best friend for ordering specialty flours for baking!

  2. says

    Substituting coconut flour makes the muffins dry and dense, so that won’t work. I have used sunflower seed flour in all my baking recipes and it works great as a substitute. I will be posting a tutorial on making that on Saturday. If you have an issue with the almond extract you can substitute twice as much vanilla or try rum extract πŸ™‚

  3. Annette@InAllYouDo says

    Any substitute ideas for the coconut oil and coconut sugar? I’m allergic. πŸ™ I love that you used Almond flour though – it’s one of my favorites to use!!!

  4. says

    This looks delicious! I will be trying this this week. I don’t have any coconut sugar though, but I’ll see what I can do to mix it up. Thank you for linking up and sharing at Countdown in Style.

    Almond flour, coconut oil and sugar? I pinned this before I even finished reading the rest of it! These look absolutely amazing! I want to try them asap! I’ve been thinking of trying to find a healthier, gluten free blueberry muffin and here it is! Thank you for sharing with us at Countdown in Style! Don’t forget to stop by Friday to see if you are featured! xo

    I have a friend who does the paleo diet…I will have to share this with her! Thanks for linking up to the Bloggers Brags Pinterest Party! I have pinned your post to the Bloggers Brags Pinterest Board.

    Visiting from Melt in Your Mouth Monday. These look delicious, I’ve pinned these as I’m looking to baking gluten free treats and this looks like a great recipe to try out first. I co-host Sweet and Savoury Sunday and would love for you to stop by and share this and other recipes with us. Have a great day!

  8. says

    I have been trying quite a few gluten free and paleo recipes lately since one side of the family is GF and the other paleo. I will definitely be trying these next time we get together. Thanks for sharing on Share Your Stuff Tuesdays.

  9. says

    oh these look good. I love blueberry muffins, but try not to eat them too much due to the flour and sugar content, these however don’t have flour or sugar so they are all good. πŸ™‚
    Thanks for sharing at The Weekend Social, I’m looking forward to seeing you again next Thursday at 9pm EST at for another installment of The Weekend Social.

    Today (7/11/2014) is Blueberry Muffin Day and I wanted to make some. I used your recipe and they are really good! I didn’t have any almond extract so I used vanilla and it worked just fine. They are really good!

    I didn’t see where it said how many it makes (but I am probably overlooking it), but it does make 1 dozen.


  11. Carole says

    Doesn’t anyone else get as frustrated as I do….
    I find beautiful recipes like yours’ on line; and therein – lies the problem.
    My kitchen is downstairs…I want to be near the stove, mixing bowls and tools…in order to make these recipes come to the kitchen table!!
    I have to write these recipes order to even get started. So, I’m wondering why we aren’t able to print them out.
    Could someone explain? I know I’m not a computer expert…but what don’t I understand? How do other
    wanna-be-bakers manage this?

    • marianne says

      Carole, when there isn’t a print option I just highlight the text, copy it, and then paste it to a word document. Then you can print it or save it to your computer.

  12. says

    Just made these today and used the coconut milk I had in the fridge – I added a bit more butter because sometimes things are dry in Colorado. They came out amazing! I think almond flour is turning into my favorite flour when eating gluten free! SHARING!

  13. Amelia Kennedy says

    As it’s now being claimed that honey is no better for you than sugar, I’m wondering if I could somehow use powdered Stevia extract instead? I have used this with great success in baking, but not sure how this would affect the finishing result of your muffins?

    • Jordyn says

      You would have to play around a little bit, the honey adds moisture to the muffins so you would have to compensate for the lack of liquid, possibly add more milk or coconut cream. If you have success, please let me know, I would love to add that option to my recipe πŸ™‚

  14. Rose says

    I just made the batter following the directions w almond flour. Is it supposed to be super Liquidy? Help! What should I do…add some coconut flour?

    • Jordyn says

      It shouldn’t be any more liquid than a regular muffin batter, that’s really strange, I’ve never heard of that :/

      2 tablespoons of coconut flour should thicken it up, but will change the consistency of the muffin and give it a sponge like texture.
