The Best Coconut Flour Blueberry Muffins (With Crumble Top)

5 from 1 ratings

Way back before I ever started following any kind of paleo diet, I would still make a point to always avoid any type of baked good that you would usually find in coffee shops. I refused to eat things like muffins or donuts because I figured they were completely devoid of any nutritional value. The good news is that after I started living the paleo lifestyle, I quickly realized that not only could I enjoy baked goods, but they could also be quite healthy as well. This recipe is a perfect example of that. These could very well be the best coconut flour blueberry muffins that you will ever try. The muffins are made with all natural whole food ingredients and they even have a delightful crumble top made with honey and almonds.

If you’re an individual who is always feeling rushed in the mornings and you’re looking for a breakfast option that’s both nutritious and easy to grab and go, this recipe for coconut flour blueberry muffins is for you. The muffins are 100% grain and gluten free, featuring fresh blueberries and a delicious crumble top made with honey and nuts. It’s definitely possible to enjoy a tasty muffin without feeling any guilt with this recipe.

A Tasty & Convenient Breakfast Option

There’s two main components involved in making this blueberry muffin batter–preparing a ‘dry’ mix and a ‘wet’ mix. For the dry mix, you’re going to be mixing together your coconut flour, baking powder, and salt. The reason I don’t feel guilty about enjoying paleo muffins like this is precisely because they’re made with ingredients like coconut flour instead of flour made from wheat. Refined white flours are known to cause inflammation in many people, and chronic inflammation is one of the main contributing factors in the development of many types of diseases. (1)

The wet mix is made by first beating your eggs and honey together until the mixture is pale and fluffy. Honey is another ingredient that I absolutely love for all of my paleo baking needs. Not only does it add an incredible amount of all natural sweetness to my baked goods, but it’s an honest to goodness nutritional superfood as well. It’s absolutely packed with beneficial enzymes, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. It’s such a beneficial food for your health that many people even use it for several medicinal applications, thanks to its antiseptic and antibacterial properties as well. (2)

After your eggs and honey are combined, you can add in the melted coconut oil, almond milk, and vanilla extract. Beat this mixture until it’s well combined and then gradually add in your coconut flour mix as well. Let your batter sit for 5-10 minutes and then fold in the blueberries. These are my favorite type of muffins as I personally think blueberries are delicious, and they’re also incredibly good for you. They’re a solid source of fiber, vitamins B6 and C, folate, potassium, and preliminary research has even indicated that they may help to improve memory in older adults. (3) With your muffin batter complete, the final step is to make the crumble top. Get a separate bowl and combine your almond flour, shredded coconut, honey, coconut oil, and chopped almonds. Mix everything together with a fork until large crumbs form and then sprinkle it evenly over the top of your muffin batter. 

baking the muffins

There was a point in my life where I never thought I would enjoy eating muffins for breakfast, but thanks to awesome paleo recipes like this one, I can do just that. Not only that, but I can do so 100% guilt free due to the fact that the muffins are made totally from scratch with fantastic paleo friendly ingredients. And while these blueberry muffins are incredibly tasty, the real key to this recipe is the added crumble top. Even if you’re not a fan of almonds, you could swap them out for pecans or walnuts if you’d prefer and still achieve the same result with the crumble top.

  1. I just made these and they were absolutely delicious! This recipe is a keeper! I did use a little less honey and some baking stevia… that was the only mod.
