These grain-free paleo blueberry muffins have become one of my go-to breakfast options since the recipe comes together in the blender and cleanup is a breeze!
If you follow a grain-free lifestyle, for allergy reasons or by choice, you know that it can be difficult to find recipes that include easy to find ingredients; and when you do, they often “taste funny” to the kids and you end up eating the batch yourself.
But not with this recipe. This is one grain-free paleo approved recipe that both kids and adults devour. Of course, if you need more inspiration on how to reduce grains from your family’s diet, my third cookbook, The Best Grain-Free Family Meals on the Planet, helps you do just that: add more fresh foods to your meals without feeling like you are missing out on something.
Back to these muffins. They come together in a matter of minutes using your blender or food processor. The recipe has no refined sugars either, so it’s one you can eat if you are following a clean diet as well. Oh, and little ones love to help out making these too, so check out how easy they are to make in this quick video.
Whether you use fresh or frozen blueberries doesn’t matter. In fact, you can use strawberries, peaches, pears, or even chocolate chips! Or, for a “plain” look and feel to a yellow cake cupcake, you just leave it all out and enjoy!
What type of fruit do you love to add into your muffins?
Grain-Free Paleo Blueberry Muffins
- Yield: 8 muffins
- ½ cup plain whole milk yogurt or, canned coconut milk
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
- 1 tablespoon honey (or maple syrup)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ¼ teaspoon apple cider vinegar
- 1 ¾ cups blanched almond flour
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 3 large eggs
- ½ cup blueberries or strawberries
- Preheat oven to 350F and line muffin pan with 8 liners.
- Place yogurt, melted butter, honey (or maple syrup), vanilla, and apple cider vinegar into a blender. Blend just until combined.
- Add almond flour, baking soda, and salt to the wet mixture and blend. The batter will be very thick, so you might need to wipe the sides with a spatula.
- Add the eggs to the thick batter and blend, just until everything is combined. If you over mix, the muffins won’t be tender.
- If you are adding blueberries to these muffins, transfer batter into a bowl and fold in the berries. Then, distribute batter evenly into the 8 muffin cups.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 18 minutes, until the tops are golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Could i use almond milk instead of coconut milk or yogurt?
I would not recommend using almond milk since the consistency is much thinner than coconut milk or yogurt.
We follow paleo lifestyle and Dairy is not apart of that. would a coconut yogurt be a good substitute?
I like to use canned coconut milk or cream when I’m following strict paleo or whole milk yogurt (as listed) when I’m more lenient and doing primal. 1:1 ratio as shown.
These look delicious. I just bought some blueberries. Need to try them
I made these for my daughter’s birthday party (she LOVES blueberries). They were delicious and the kids loved them.
These were delicious!
Will this work with other dairy types and flaxmeal instead of eggs? We’re grain-free/dairy-free/egg-free!
Courtney, I have not tried this with an egg replacer. Sorry!
Just came across your site and made these for the first time, simply amazing!!! I love your site and will be trying more recipes very soon. Thanks for sharing with all of us!!
Great muffins – thanks for the recipe! We used mixed frozen berries as didn’t have any blueberries in the house. The ones that got raspberries were the best!
I made these today, and they were delicious. This was my first endeavor to make grain free muffins, and I am hooked. I couldn’t believe how simple it was, thank you so much for posting this and making it so easy.
These were amazing! I am still new to the paleo lifestyle and have been dying for something sweet.
I made these last night. I wish I could give you MY opinion on them but they disappeared before I could even taste them. Sure sign that they were yummy!
Wow!! My search for perfect blueberry muffins ends here. I’ve tried many blueberry muffin recipes only to be disappointed but these are AMAZING.
My kids love blueberry muffins! Thanks so much for all your amazing recipes, Laura.
Awesome recipe! I love that you can really make it with whatever fruit you want. I’d love to try these with apples!
My family and I started eating grain-free last year. I have purchased all your books and we are all super happy with our new “lifestyle” or eating fresh and healthy meals.
These look great. Just ordered your newest book! Can’t wait to get it and explore all the new recipes.
Just bought some fresh blueberries! Will try this recipe for breakfast tomorrow.
My kids love pancakes! These muffins are perfect to put in the lunchbox.
