Well here we are.  Labor Day is over, and fall is staring us in the face.  I actually love this time of year, because there’s an amazing fusion of summer and fall produce.

Before blueberries are completely out of season, I hope you make these Almond Flour Blueberry Banana Muffins.  

If they’re already out of season, don’t let that stop you!  Frozen blueberries work perfectly well too. šŸ™‚

If you’ve followed along here for a while, you’ve seen a major shift in the way that I bake.  Two years ago I was diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), so I follow a gluten-free diet 95% of the time.

Learning to bake gluten-free has been fun, and I honestly don’t miss wheat…unless we’re talking pizza, homemade bread and cupcakes. šŸ™‚

I love baking with oat flour, but it’s nice to change things up and bake grain free treats. 

I adapted this almond flour muffin recipe from my gluten free banana bread.  These muffins are hearty, fluffy and loaded with juicy blueberries and banana flavor!

What does almond flour do in baking?

If you’ve never baked with almond flour, you’ll be surprised how versatile it is in baking.  You can bake anything from cookies and brownies to pie crusts and cakes.  

Almond flour works well as a replacement for all purpose or whole wheat flours, but since there’s no gluten involved, it generally requires more eggs to act as a binder.

Does almond flour taste the same as regular flour?

Baked goods made with almond flour have a nutty flavor and heartier texture that sets them apart from baked goods made with regular flour.

Is baking with almond flour healthy?

If you’re looking to minimize your grains and gluten, almond flour is a great option. 

It’s a low carb, grain-free alternative that’s a staple in the paleo and keto diets.  

Almonds contain many health benefits as they’re high in protein, vitamins, minerals, fiber and are anti-inflammatory.

Which almond flour is the best?

The best almond flour for baking is super fine almond flour.  I don’t recommend using almond meal as it’s a coarser grind and won’t yield the same results.

I highly recommend purchasing super fine almond flour at Costco, it’s so much more cost effective!

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Line a standard muffin pan with paper liners or grease the muffin cups well with oil.
  • Mash the bananas in a large bowl.  Add the eggs, oil, maple syrup and vanilla extract, and whisk well to combine.

  •  Divide the batter evenly between the (12) muffin cups and bake for 23-28 minutes, or until lightly golden brown and set.
  • Cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then remove and cool completely on a wire rack.
