What You’ll Need for Almond Flour Blueberry Muffins

To make these delicious almond flour blueberry yogurt muffins, you will need the following ingredients:

  • Almond flour: Almond flour is a wonderful flour alternative that is rich in vitamins, minerals, and healthy fats. It is also much lower in carbs than regular flour, not to mention it’s free of gluten.
  • Eggs: Eggs are jam-packed with protein, healthy fats, and tons of nutrients, including vital minerals like folate and iron.
  • Greek yogurt: Greek yogurt is different from other yogurts because it undergoes a straining process that removes the whey. It’s high in protein, yet lower in sugar than traditional yogurt. It also contains tons of essential vitamins and minerals.
  • Sweetener: Granular sweetener is a natural sugar replacement, however, it doesn’t have the bitter aftertaste commonly associated with other sugar replacements. It bakes and measures like regular sugar, making it perfect for this muffin recipe. Some keto-friendly brands to try are Swerve and Natvia.
  • Blueberries: Blueberries are as nutritious as they are sweet, not to mention they add beautiful color to our muffins.
  • Walnuts: One of the healthiest nuts on the planet, walnuts are loaded with healthy fats and protein. They also have a nutty flavor that pairs beautifully with these muffins. Almonds are work great in this recipe.

Recipe Tips for the Best Low Carb Blueberry Muffins

Here are a few tips for making these delicious and healthy muffins:

  • If you want to make muffins that overflow on top as they would in a bakery, try reducing the count to 10 muffins. You will want to use the same amount of batter, just make sure to fill the muffin liners generously.
  • For Instagram-worthy muffins, press some fresh blueberries into the tops of your muffins before baking them.
  • Make sure you give your muffins time to cool down. I know how tempting it can be to dive right into that warm and fluffy goodness, but the muffins will continue to firm as they cool, which helps to create the ideal consistency.
  • Never substitute almond flour for almond meal. They are not the same! Almond meal will give the muffins more of a grainy consistency, which you don’t want.
  • If you’re not a fan of almond flour, try swapping it out for coconut or oat flour.

Recipe Variations

One of the best parts about this recipe is how easy it is to customize! Here are some of my favorite ways to make it your own:

  • Switch up the fruit. Not a blueberry fan? No problem. You could make these muffins using another type of berry or fruit. Some of my top picks are raspberries, blackberries, and apples. 
  • Add some protein. For a more filling breakfast that also serves as a fantastic post-workout treat, try adding some extra protein. Options include vanilla protein powder, chia seeds, and flax seeds.
  • Swap out the nuts. This recipe would taste great with a variety of nuts, so don’t worry if you don’t love walnuts. You can swap out the walnuts for pecans, almonds, or even dark chocolate chips.

How to Store Almond Flour Blueberry Yogurt Muffins

A batch of these almond flour blueberry yogurt muffins is perfect for making ahead and have on-hand throughout the week. They’re super easy to reheat, making them the perfect grab-and-go breakfast for those mornings when you literally have to grab and go. To store, seal cooled muffins in an airtight storage container and store in one of two ways:

  • In the fridge for up to one week.
  • In the freezer for up to 4-6 months.

Pro tip: Never seal your muffins in a plastic bag or plastic wrap, as they will get soggy.

Absolutely! If that’s what you have available, you can absolutely use frozen blueberries in this muffin recipe. However, avoid thawing them first, as thawed blueberries will make your muffins soggy. I also recommend tossing them with a bit of almond flour first, which will help them to distribute more evenly throughout the batter.

The eggs act as a binder and help to give these muffins their structure. While I have not personally tried these muffins without eggs, you could try using mashed banana or a flax egg instead for a vegan-friendly swap. Keep in mind that substituting the eggs may alter the texture of the muffins.

Yes! Not only are these almond flour blueberry yogurt muffins keto-friendly, but they’re gluten-free as well. This is because we use almond flour instead of regular wheat flour. If you prefer another flour alternative, you can try using oat flour or coconut flour instead.

Coconut flour can not be substituted for almond flour in low-carb baking since they cook differently. Coconut flour absorbs more liquid than almond flour and the muffin will not turn out if made with coconut flour.
