Holding an almond flour blackberry ،in.

When I’m not making a smoothie for my kids for breakfast, there’s a good chance I have some fresh berry ،ins for them to grab. I recently grabbed some Sweet Karoline® blackberries and they were so delicious and sweet, I knew I had to whip up some Almond Flour Blackberry Muffins. Gluten-free, dairy-free, and full of flavor, they make a great breakfast or snack.


Almond Flour Blackberry Muffins ingredients
  • Almond flour: A great gluten-free alternative to white flour.
  • Baking soda: Helps the ،ins to rise while baking.
  • Salt: Salt is necessary in most baking recipes for some balance.
  • Eggs: This recipe calls for 2 eggs and 2 egg whites, to help bind the batter together and add moisture.
  • Honey: A natural way to slightly sweeten the ،ins.
  • Olive oil: Adds some more moisture to the batter.
  • Vanilla: Vanilla extract is a great flavor enhancer.
  • Lemon: Lemon juice and lemon zest add bright, acidic flavor that pairs well with the blackberries and cuts through some of the sweetness.
  • Sweet Karoline® blackberries: Peak season for blackberries is March-May, and these sweet, juicy berries add a wonderful pop of flavor in the ،ins.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you need more eggs when using almond flour?

Typically yes, as the added egg will help bind and rise the flour replacement.

Why does almond flour not rise?

Courser almond meal will have a harder time rising and ،lding together, so make sure you are actually using almond flour. Then making sure you have enough egg and baking soda will help it to rise.

Why are my ،ins sunken?

A couple things might be contributing to sunken ،ins, the first is that they are under baked, and the second is that your oven wasn’t at the right temperature. Try using an oven thermometer to make sure your oven is reading the temp correctly.
