These are some of the best muffins Geoff and I have ever tasted – including those we’d tried before going gluten free. But we figured they would be since the blog’s preamble to the recipe included: “This one is for you Mom, to give you some good recipes for the 5lb bag of almond flour I convinced you to buy!” Who wouldn’t post their absolute best almond flour recipe after saying that!
Geoff and I were intrigued by these muffins because they looked an awful lot like some almond flour muffins we’d purchased at a farmer’s market while on holiday and had been yearning for ever since. It turns out these are actually better than those market muffins. Thanks so much to Nourishment for Living Well for the recipe.

The recipe was simply laid out and easy to follow.
The muffins are truly awesome. They taste like a moist bran muffin, so moist you don’t need any butter – another way they are healthy! If you are from Canada, you will know what I mean when I say they taste like a Tim Horton’s cranberry-blueberry bran muffin, only we think these are better. Can’t wait to try adding all kinds of other berries and fruit.
One of the issues with gf baking is that items often don’t have staying power so we tried to eat them over as many days as possible to see how well they stood up. We could only make it three days without finishing them all (oops!), but even on day three they were still moist and tasty. In fact, as the days went on, they held together even better. We kept them in the fridge as is recommended.
WHAT WE DID DIFFERENTLY:
We added 1 teaspoon of xanthan gum to the dry mix. No reason. It just seems odd to bake without it now.
They ended up taking a bit longer in the oven – 25 – 30 minutes – but that could be because we don’t have a convection oven.

Thanks for wonderful review! I love your blog, lots of recipes here I want to try!
Thanks so much. And thanks again for the muffin recipe. Can’t wait to see what else you come up with!
oh wow, they look great:) Really would like to eat them right now 😀 haha
Me too. Too bad we ate them all already.
Wonderful combo. Thank you! I’ve bookmarked their page. Will need to make these sometime soon. 😉
Glad you like them. They are really fabulous.
They are very good!
They look great! Love the pic!
The one thing I have missed since going gluten free is baking. I have always loved it even from a young age. Unfortunately, being the only GF person in my house makes it hard to find things everyone will eat. Why eat crumbly dry cakes when you can eat Mr Kiplings moist pies?!
But THIS has inspired me to renew my love for baking and maybe my gluten-eating family will even like them!!
I’m sure they will! I know we sure did. Let me know how it goes.
