Because of all of the requests I have had for more videos as well as for recipes using coconut flour… I have created a short video tutorial using coconut flour.
In this quick and easy tutorial I invite you into my kitchen to be taken step by step through a recipe for mini blueberry muffins. These muffins are mighty tasty.
My children and their friends (who can eat as much gluten as they want) fought over these muffins after I was done baking and shooting them for my video purposes. They ended their little row in a civil fashion, by dividing the muffins evenly amongst themselves.
Mini Blueberry Muffins
- ¼ cup coconut flour
- ¼ teaspoon celtic sea salt
- ¼ teaspoon baking soda
- ¼ cup grapeseed oil or palm shortening
- ¼ cup agave nectar or honey
- 3 large eggs
- ½ cup frozen blueberries
- In a medium bowl, combine coconut flour, salt and baking soda
- In a large bowl, combine grapeseed oil, agave and eggs
- Stir the dry ingredients into the wet, then gently fold in the blueberries
- Grease a mini muffin pan with grapeseed oil
- Spoon the batter 1 tablespoon at a time into the mini muffin pans
- Bake at 350°F for 10-12 minutes, or until firm
- Cool and serve
As you can probably tell, these muffins are a favorite in our house for breakfast (served with scrambled eggs), snack or dessert.
I hope you like them as much as we do and that you find this video tutorial to be of much assistance in your baking endeavors. Enjoy!

I used melted coconut oil and added lemon zest. I also used fresh blueberries. They turned out amazing. I make them for my son who has Ulcerative Colitis and he eats them for breakfast.
Heather, thanks for letting me know these are amazing!
Thank you for sharing this recipe!
I made a couple of substitutions including fresh strawberries in place of blueberries and instead of agave nectar or honey I used organic turboado. I also added 1 egg to make them more cake-like…hey, it works for brownies so it seemed like a good idea.
Yummy!!! I will make this recipe again. :)
Melle, so glad you liked these muffins!
Do you (or anyone) know how these freeze? Mine turned out great. I’d like to freeze some for later.
Can I use coconut oil instead of grapeseed oil? I don’t have access to grapeseed right now. Thank you!
Hi Jen, I have substituted coconut oil 1-1 and they have turned out perfectly. I will also try them with lemon as suggested in one of the above comments. Good luck!
I used coconut oil instead of grasped oil and the batter all clumped up. Did I do something wrong?
Hi Aidyl, I think the key is to melt the coconut oil if you’re going to make this substitution :-)
Hi, these look yummy! Do you think I could replace the agave nectar with stevia? How many packets would I need? With the candida diet I cannot due agave nectar. Thanks!
Thank you for this recipe! they look so good!
Could I use egg replacersand if so should I double up?
