Strawberry Vanilla Muffin (Almond Flour)

Strawberry Muffin

This is a lovely light, moist strawberry muffin made from almond flour.  The flavour combination of strawberry and vanilla make this a great summer muffin.

Perhaps for an afternoon tea or something to eat whilst you watch the tennis as Wimbledon.  Or you can just munch the lot in one evening as we did under the guise of taste testing!


I stepped away from my beloved coconut flour and make muffins from another low carb flour for a change!  These strawberry muffins are pretty to look at and tasty to eat.   

I used honey for the initial batch which made the muffin very moist but was not carb friendly.  So another batch was made with a sugar substitute which was just as delicious.  I used almond flour that is basically ground blanched almonds.  The muffin batter will be very runny, but don’t cooks well into a moist muffin!

I will have to try and make these with my beloved coconut flour but if you are going to try this I would recommend that you increase the eggs and add a dash of extra water to keep the mixture as moist as this recipe.

    I have just made these but completely forgot to add the water. They were still lovely and moist so when I make them again I don’t know whether to add the water or not.

      Leave the water out if the mixture is fine without it.

    I made these and substituted sweetener for honey and water for coconut milk. They turned out so good! I’m so glad that I can still have my ‘sweets’ after going on a low carb lifestyle change!

    Just made for the first time. My batter hasn’t to be scooped into the muffin tins and I filled each liner up to almost the top but still got 12 muffins not six. Are they supposed to be jumbo muffins and not cupcake size? Just wondering so I can get a true idea on the caloric information. All that being said —-they are SOOOOOO good!

      I just made these and got 12 full cupcake size “muffins” out of it too. They’re just cooling out of the oven. I can’t wait to try them with a cup of coffee.

    When making these I used stivea for the sugar substitute and my batter was not runny and the muffin it’s self came out dry. Any suggestions on how to change that?

    I subbed coconut oil for butter and your honey for your sweetener . . . I didn’t think so but could these be the reason I got a very slack mixture? All of my berries sunk to the bottom, probably the result of having a slack mix. Also, I got 12 full muffins out of the recipe. You mentioned getting 6, yes? Any suggestions?

      It might be the oil as many years ago I did bake these with honey and they were fine and fluffy. Perhaps use a bit more almond flour next time?

    Great recipe. Thank you for sharing it. I made a couple adjustments you may want to try…I used 1/8cup water and 1/8cup of lemon juice and right before putting them in the oven, I put about 1 tsp of cream cheese in the middle of each. Had to bake a few minutes longer but they are awesome. Kinda tastes like a little shortcake. Also, I was able to make 12 with your recipe. Do you happen to know the nutritional info for each with 12?

      If you don’t want to use another liquid sweetner, such as Agave, perhaps use Erthyritol or Xylitol but use some extra water to keep the mixture moist.
