Why these Muffins are Healthy

These muffins are made with Kamut and almond flours instead of refined white flour, which is not as nutritious as whole grains. Kamut flour, or Khorasan wheat, is an ancient grain that provides more protein and fibre than wheat flour.

Almond flour is made from finely ground almonds. Not only is it gluten-free and low carb, it also provides healthy fats, vitamins, minerals and protein.

Here’s What You Need to Make These Easy Blueberry Muffins

  • Kamut flour & Almond flour – a healthy blend of both of these will offer heaps of nutrition and tonnes of flavour
  • Coconut sugar – it has a lower glycemic index, meaning it doesn’t cause a spike in your blood sugars and insulin – like regular white sugar. Plus, from a nutritional standpoint, it’s not significantly superior to white sugar. Both types are mostly sucrose. Although, I like the rich caramel taste, that works well in this recipe.
  • Sea salt
  • Baking powder – an essential rising agent
  • Almond oil – you could use grape-seed oil instead which is a budget-friendly option
  • Egg – medium-sized
  • Soy milk – you could also use almond milk too
  • Vanilla extract – make sure not to use essence as it doesn’t have a great flavour
  • Blueberries – fresh (you can use frozen too)

How to Make Easy Blueberry Muffins – Step By Step

step by step preparation shots of blueberry muffins
  1. Combine the flours, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl (Image 1).
  2. In a separate bowl, add oil, egg, milk and vanilla extract. Whisk to combine (Image 2).
  3. Add milk mixture to the bowl with dry ingredients. Use a fork to gently combine and avoid over mixing (Image 3). Stir in the blueberries and fold gently to combine (Image 4).
  4. Pour the batter into muffin cups and divide equally. Fill to the top (Image 5)
  5. Bake in the oven and bake for 20-25 mins or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of a muffin comes out with no wet batter (Image 6). Cool on a baking rack.

Can I use Frozen Blueberries?

Yes, if you can’t find fresh blueberries or they aren’t in season, then you absolutely can use frozen blueberries. You don’t need to defrost them before using them either as they will defrost when they are baked in the oven.

Is there a difference in flavour? You won’t notice much difference, mainly because these are baked. If you were making a fresh salad or eating blueberries uncooked, I’d always recommend using only fresh.

Can I Use Other Fruit?

The great thing about this recipe is that it will work great with most fruits, especially berries. Why not try using strawberries, raspberries or blackberries. Cooked apples would be great for Autumn, try throwing in a little cinnamon too for a festive feel.

How Long Do They Last?

These blueberry muffins will store well in a cool, dry place for around 4-5 days, maybe even up to 1 week (in the fridge), but they may start to dry out. Alternatively, you can freeze these and defrost them the night before you want to eat them.

This is a great way to prep in advance for quick and easy breakfasts or snacks!

Top Tips for Making Blueberry Muffins

  • For big-topped muffins, pour 2 tbsp water in the remaining empty cups. This will help the muffins bake evenly.
  • You can use an ice cream scoop or cup measure to divide the batter equally.
  • Store baked muffins in a cool, dry place for 4-5 days
  • Muffins can also be frozen for up to 6 months
  • Instead of almond oil, you could use grape-seed which is a budget-friendly option
  • Feel free to add nuts and seeds to the batter for an extra healthy boost and more fabulous texture
