Almond Flour Recipes

I began baking with this magical ingredient in 2001 when almond flour recipes were incredibly few and far between.

Gluten Free Recipes

My son had just been diagnosed with Celiac Disease, and I made it my mission to turn all of my favorite traditional childhood favorites into gluten free, almond flour recipes.

Healthy Gluten Free Almond Flour Cookbook

I wanted my kiddo to have all the delicious treats I grew up with and so I spent years in the kitchen creating my own healthy gluten free recipes for him.

Out of that The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook was born.

In addition, I have hundreds of free almond flour recipes here on the website.

Muffins with Almond Flour

I’ve been playing around with almond flour and creating recipes that are healthy and easy ever since, and the story behind this Almond Flour Muffins recipe is part of the journey.

I created it after reading Michael Ruhlman’s book Ratio back in 2010. I saw Ruhlman speak at Blogher Food shortly thereafter, and the experience transformed my recipe creation process.

Celiac Disease Self-Care

But there was one issue with Ruhlman’s ratios and recipe principles. Because he bakes with wheat flour and gluten they were impractical and unusable for me.

Still, I was inspired to create a ratio recipe template for myself, along with those of you suffering from an intolerance to foods like gluten, due to Celiac Disease. Almond flour was my ingredient of choice!

Is Almond Flour Gluten Free

I find almond flour is the perfect food for those suffering from Celiac Disease or following a Keto Diet because it’s:

  • Gluten Free
  • Low Carb
  • High Fat
  • Keto Friendly

Keto Muffins

I created this keto muffins recipe using ratios (and a kitchen scale) after half a dozen attempts.

The ratio I came up with for muffins with almond flour is 4 parts flour: 4 parts egg: 1 part sweetener.

Paleo Recipes

Not all baked goods recipes scale easily, but this one is quite flexible. It can be scaled up or down to make as many or as few muffins as you like. Double it for eight muffins, and cut it in half for two. 

Almond Flour Bread Recipe

Not in the mood for muffins? You can easily turn this Almond Flour Muffins recipe into a quick bread recipe instead.

To make a loaf of quick bread, simply double the above batter and bake for 35-40 minutes on the lower rack of your oven in a 5¾ x 3¼-inch mini loaf pan.

Escali Kitchen Scale

Digital Food Scale

Quick note, you’ll need a digital food scale to make my Almond Flour Muffins recipe. I’ve had the Escali kitchen scale for over 15 years and love it.

While its performance is on point, the scale is also super thin so that it can slide into a small drawer, saving valuable space in your kitchen.

Dairy Free Muffins

Having the proper equipment is important, but so is having the right ingredients. All you need to make my Almond Flour Muffins is a handful of healthy ingredients:

  • Almond Flour
  • Eggs
  • Honey
  • Baking Soda
  • Apple Cider Vinegar
