Description

These gluten free blueberry almond power muffins are wholesome and satisfying and are made with almond butter, Greek yogurt, oats, and almond flour.


Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup (180g) plain Greek yogurt (I use 0%)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup (85g) creamy almond butter
  • 1/3 cup (75g) honey
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups (160g) old-fashioned whole rolled oats*
  • 1/2 cup (50g) almond flour*
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup + 2 Tablespoons (165g) fresh or frozen blueberries (do not thaw)
  • optional: handful of sliced, slivered, or chopped almonds for topping

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F (218°C). Spray a 12-count muffin pan with nonstick spray or use cupcake liners.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk the yogurt, eggs, almond butter, honey, and vanilla together until smooth. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk the oats, almond flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon together until combined. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and whisk until everything is combined. Fold in 3/4 cup blueberries, reserving the rest for the tops of the muffins.
  4. Spoon the batter into liners, filling them all the way to the top. Top each with a couple blueberries and almonds, if using. Bake the muffins for 5 minutes at 425°F then, keeping the muffins in the oven, reduce the oven temperature to 350°F (177°C). Bake for an additional 14-16 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. The total time these muffins take in the oven is about 19-21 minutes, give or take.
  5. Allow the muffins to cool for 10 minutes in the muffin pan, then transfer to a wire rack to cool until ready to eat.

Notes

  1. Make Ahead Instructions: Muffins stay soft, fresh, and moist in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Muffins freeze well for up to 3 months. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator before enjoying.
  2. Special Tools: Glass Mixing Bowls | Spatula | Muffin Liners | Muffin Pan
  3. Oats: Use certified gluten free oats to make gluten free.
  4. Almond Flour: If you can’t find almond flour in the store, you can make your own by simply pulsing almonds until they reach a gritty and rough flour-like consistency. It’s what you always use when making vanilla almond snack bars. But instead of almond flour, you can try using the same amount of oat flour, whole wheat flour, or all-purpose flour. Of course, using these last 2 options will no longer keep your muffins gluten free.
