Recipes That Use Almond Flour
My son had just been diagnosed with Celiac Disease and I made it my mission to turn all of my favorite traditional childhood recipes into gluten free, almond flour classics.
Healthy Gluten Free Almond Flour Cookbook
I wanted my kiddo to have all the delicious treats I grew up with and so I spent years in the kitchen creating my own healthy gluten free recipes for him. Out of that The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook was born.
In addition, I have hundreds of free almond flour recipes here on the website.
Recipe for Almond Flour Muffins
I’ve been playing around with almond flour and creating recipes that are healthy and easy ever since, and the story behind this muffin with Almond Flour recipe is part of the journey.
I created it after reading Michael Ruhlman’s book Ratio back in 2010. I saw Ruhlman speak at Blogher Food shortly thereafter and the experience transformed my recipe creation process.
Intolerance to Foods from Celiac Disease
But there was one issue with Ruhlman’s ratios and recipe principles. Because he bakes with wheat flour and gluten they were impractical and unusable for me.
Still, I was inspired to create a ratio recipe template for myself, along with those of you suffering from an intolerance to foods like gluten, due to Celiac Disease. Almond flour was my ingredient of choice!
Almond Flour is Gluten Free
I find almond flour is the perfect food for those suffering from Celiac Disease or following a Keto Diet because it’s:
- Gluten Free
- Low Carb
- High Fat
- Keto Friendly
Muffins Recipe Healthy
I created this recipe for healthy muffins using ratios (and a kitchen scale) after half a dozen attempts.
The ratio I came up with for Muffins with Almond Flour is 4 parts flour: 4 parts egg: 1 part sweetener.

Not all baked goods recipes scale easily, but this one is quite flexible. It can be scaled up or down to make as many or as few muffins as you like. Double it for eight muffins, and cut it in half for two.

While its performance is on point, the scale is also super thin so that it can slide into a small drawer, saving valuable space in your kitchen.

For anyone who is gluten-free, your books are a lifesaver! I have them all, and my favorite is your Paleo cookbook. I have changed your bacon tart recipe, to a spinach tart recipe, and it is my go to for a lovely dish. I serve it with a side of partially oven dried tomatoes and often also goat cheese for people who eat dairy. It can be served at any meal it is so versatile!
The nut free brand muffins are amazing! I bake up a big batch for anyone who has just had surgery and needs more fiber in their diet to combat the side effects of their painkillers. I also bake up big batches is because they’re tasty.
Thank you! I have been cooking out of your books for years. You are my favorite cookbook author, and that’s saying a lot because I am a total cookbook junkie!
