Fall Mornings: Blueberry Apple Muffins (Free Of Sugar, Grains, & Dairy)

What a dream it would be to wake to the scent of apple, blueberry, and cinnamon swirling through the crisp air. A window is cracked; sheer curtains sway gently; natural morning light pours in.

To bite into a muffin fresh out of the oven, and melt away with its perfect mix of autumnal flavors, smiling even bigger as you realize this treat is made of pure healthy goodness. Yes, what a dream it would be indeed…

blueberry apple muffins


1 cup coconut flour

½ teaspoon baking soda

¾ teaspoon sea salt

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

½ cup coconut oil, melted

6 eggs

2 tablespoons maple syrup*

2 tablespoons raw honey*

¼ cup almond milk

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

¼ cup fresh blueberries

¼ cup apples, chopped (with or without skin is fine!)

*Either or both of these may be substituted with agave nectar if you wish!



1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a medium bowl, combine coconut flour, baking soda, sea salt, and cinnamon, and mix well.

2. In a separate bowl, combine coconut oil, eggs, maple syrup, honey, almond milk, and vanilla extract, and whisk until smooth.

3. Combine wet ingredients with dry ingredients, and mix well. If mixture seems too dry, feel free to add in a bit more almond milk. Then, fold in blueberries and apples.

4. Spoon into a lined muffin tray. This should make about 8 medium-sized muffins.

5. Bake for 20-25 minutes.

I used to make a similar recipe, but with rice flour. I like that coconut flour is more widely-available and makes grain-free options like this possible now!

These looked soooo good- but when I tried them they were way too dry :( (I even tried adding extra almond milk!) any advice to make these more moist?? They almost crumbled apart after baking!!
Thanks! :)

I’m a huge blueberry muffin fan. These look good and the pictures are gorgeous, but I think leaving out dairy, sugar, and grains is excessive. Maybe removing one or even two of the three would work, but in its effort to accommodate every allergy/intolerance/unnecessary hipster dietary preference this doesn’t really even resemble a muffin to me.

Liv – I think that might depend on the coconut flour you use! Some tend to absorb the moisture way more than others. I would suggest either trying a different brand of coconut flour or using less of it. Try starting with half the amount and add a little more until you get the consistency you want. I also think they seem to have more moisture after they’re kept in the fridge for a few hours. Hope that helps!

Zophia – I totally see what you’re saying. I personally can’t have grains, sugar, or most dairy, so I make these muffins for myself — I think they might be best suitable for people with dietary restrictions like mine. You can feel free to sub in whatever you like, though — like dairy milk instead of almond, or a different kind of flour!

Aysha – Believe it or not, it’s actually a blazer! I found it at a thrift store and thought it would be the perfect backdrop for these photos :)
