This is the coconut flour muffins recipe you’ve been requesting! I came up with these coconut flour blueberry muffins because I kept getting requests for nut-free baked goods. And I’m here to deliver on those requests. My keto muffins with coconut flour are everything you want in a muffin: slightly sweet, super moist, with a perfectly crispy top. I may be biased, but I think these are the best keto coconut flour muffins out there! I can’t wait for you to try them out.
This coconut flour muffins recipe was originally published back in 2017, nicknamed paleo cornbread muffins with jalapenos. If you want to make that version, increase sea salt to 1 tsp, replace vanilla with blackstrap molasses, and replace blueberries with 2-3 tbsp finely chopped jalapenos. However, I found they worked much better as coconut flour blueberry muffins than they did as cornbread, and I’ve since added some tweaks to make them less dry.
Can I Use Coconut Flour To Make Muffins?
Yes! In fact, I have a few coconut flour muffin recipes because coconut flour works well in muffins AND I get many requests for nut-free baked goods.
(Coconuts are actually a fruit, not a nut, and most people with nut allergies are not allergic to coconuts.)
That being said, this is important…
Do not just swap other flours with coconut flour in any recipe! You’ll end up with a super dry disaster.
Coconut flour can’t be used in a 1:1 ratio to other flours (you need way more liquid!), but if you get the quantities right, it works well for muffins that are both keto and low carb AND nut-free.
How To Make Keto Coconut Flour Muffins
These keto muffins with coconut flour take just 10 minutes to prep. Let me show you how to make coconut flour muffins:
- Prep muffin tin. Line 10 muffin cups with parchment liners.
TIP: We make 10 muffins instead of 12 so that they are taller, but if you wanted smaller ones, you could divide the batter into 12 muffin tins.
- Mix together dry ingredients. In a large bowl, stir together coconut flour, erythritol, baking powder, and sea salt.
- Stir in wet ingredients. Form a well in the middle of the dry ingredients, and whisk together eggs, coconut milk, coconut oil, and vanilla. Then, fold in the blueberries.
TIP: It’s important for the eggs to be at room temperature! Otherwise, the cold will cause the coconut oil to harden. If this happens, you can place the bowl of batter over a second bowl filled with warm water, and stir until the coconut oil melts. Do not use hot water or heat, which would cook the batter.
TIP: The coconut batter will be fairly thick, but pourable. It should not be like cookie dough.
- Fill muffin tins. Spoon the batter evenly into the muffin cups. If you like, you can dot the top with a few more blueberries.
TIP: Fill the muffin cups all the way to the top with keto muffin batter! They do rise, but not as much as regular ones made with white flour.
- Bake keto blueberry muffins with coconut flour. Bake for about 20-25 minutes, until an inserted toothpick comes out clean and the top is springy.
TIP: Coconut flour muffins don’t brown much, unlike almond flour or wheat flour ones do. So, watch for other signs of doneness, such as a firm top and an inserted toothpick coming out clean.
- Transfer muffins to a wire rack to cool. This prevents them from getting soggy.
How Does Coconut Flour Affect Muffins?
Making keto muffins with coconut flour is a great way to make a sugar and grain-free muffin that stays moist!
Coconut flour soaks up a lot of liquid, so you need to be sure to use the correct ratio of wet and dry ingredients. But if the amounts are correct (hint: follow this recipe!), it will help keep baked goods moist for longer than muffins made without it.
How To Store Coconut Flour Muffins
These healthy blueberry muffins with coconut flour should be stored in an airtight container for 3-5 days. They can be kept out at room temperature.
If you won’t eat them within 5 days, you can always freeze them…
Can You Freeze Keto Muffins With Coconut Flour?
Yes, you can freeze keto coconut flour muffins! Place the muffins in a freezer bag, and lay flat in the freezer, until frozen solid.
This blueberry muffin recipe with coconut flour will last 2-3 months in the freezer. They are perfect for taking on-the-go, or grabbing for quick breakfast and/or snacks.
