Almond Flax seed Muffins (Gluten-Free, Low Carb)

These muffins do not contain gluten or dairy.

Happy Thursday! It's been a busy day over here.  Nahia had to put together a diorama of the Boston Tea Party which was fun considering we are in quarantine and Michaels is not open.  We had to be extra creative and we made it work.  Thank goodness for craft sticks and basic art supplies.  

I have made these flax seed almond muffins twice and just simply love them.  They are hearty and so nutritious. 

Flax seeds are packed with nutrients and have many health benefits.  There is evidence that they help improve cholesterol, blood pressure, and blood sugar among others.  I like how they help raise the iron content significantly too! (#hairgoals)

Here are the details you need to make these muffins at home:

1 cup Bob's Red Mill almond flour
1/2 cup Bob's Red Mill gluten-free all-purpose flour
1/2 cup Bob's Red Mill ground flaxseed
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp almond flavor
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup coconut sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
3 tbsp almond butter

Preheat oven to 350F.  Mix wet and dry ingredients separately.  Combine.  Fill muffin cups about 3/4 of the way full.  Bake muffins for about 35 min or until a knife comes out clean.  The muffins will feel "springy" from the top and not mushy.  Allow to cool on a rack and store in an airtight container for about 4 days in the fridge.  Enjoy!

Here are the nutrition facts for these muffins:  

Not bad!  They will keep you full through your morning until lunch-  guaranteed!

I love that these muffins don't feel gluten-free.  They don't look it either.  You will want to make these again and again.

Thanks for reading this post!


  1. Is there something else I can use instead of the AP flour, like oat flour or coconut flour?

  2. I have only made these with the mix of almond flour and all-purpose so far. I do plan to test oat flour soon. Will keep you posted!
