Gluten Free Strawberry Almond Muffins

by Holly on October 24, 2015

I’ve had to get creative lately with breakfast as my kids are tiring of the eggs and toast, oatmeal and fruit I’ve been serving them their whole lives. No idea why :)

I adapted this recipe from Allergy-Friendly Food for Families: 120 Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Nut-Free, Egg-Free, and Soy-Free Recipes Everyone Will Enjoy

We enjoyed these yesterday morning with lots of organic butter and a bit of honey drizzled on top. The muffins aren’t very sweet, so if your child takes the first bite with a bit of honey, he or she will probably enjoy it more.

gluten free muffin recipe, kid friendly breakfast
Strawberry Almond Muffins:

-1 cup frozen strawberries, thawed and chopped (any frozen fruit you love can be substituted. Thawed frozen fruit creates a more baking-friendly texture.)
-2 cups almond flour (almond flour is really expensive, so I buy whole almonds in the bulk section and grind them in my Vitamix for 1/4 of the price, and it’s more fresh!)
-1/2 teaspoon salt
-1/2 teaspoon baking soda
-3 medium eggs
-1/4 cup maple syrup

  1. heat oven to 325 and line 8 muffin cups with paper liners
  2. combine the almond flour, salt and baking soda in a medium bowl
  3. crack the eggs into a large bowl and whisk in maple syrup to combine evenly
  4. pour the dry ingredients into the eggs and syrup, mixing well
  5. add the fruit and stir to combine
  6. fill the muffin cups 3/4 full (stir the batter in the bowl after filling each cup so fruit doesn’t settle)
  7. bake for 30 minutes, or until the tops become golden-brown
  8. allow the muffins to rest in pan for 3 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack
  9. serve with butter and honey for drizzling

Enjoy!
