These gluten free muffins are made with oat flour, almond and butter and topped with coconut. Quick, easy and healthy!
Hi. My name is Taylor and I am a homemade almond butter addict.
So much so that Costco left me a voicemail the other day telling me there was a recall on the stuff that I had purchased there awhile back.
Mr. Nursey FFF goes “you’re going to throw that out right?”
Me: “Do I look like I got sick?”
Aaaaandd then I went back to eating it (read: stuffing it in face by the finger-full. This addict doesn’t even have time to use a spoon.
And, if you remember that cashew cream sauce that I wanted to eat with all the spoons, you’ll know that Taylor forfeiting the use of a circular, feeding device is some serious BUS to the INESS.
Aside from my possible-death-ensuing love of almond buttah, I have also been on a gluten free muffin kick lately. You should also know that I accidentally wrote “muffin cake” instead of “kick.” I think that is why my subconscious enjoys the muffa-luffas (translation: muffin) because it’s like a mini cake. That I can eat for breakfast. And snack. And dinner and…
You get it.
So. These super softy, crunchy-coconuty topped domes of perfection. I made lots of them. And by lots I mean I didn’t go to the gym in the morning for a while.
Because I just filled my bathtub with my overflowing gluten free muffin stash and swam laps.
And by “laps” I mean I sat in a muffin bath and just ate the things. Because laps in a bathtub? That’s hard.
And by a “muffin bath’ I really mean that I did no such thing. But it sounded dramatic no?
I did have a lot of muffins. This recipe required a lot of testing. Is it just me or is it all kinds of hard to get a yummy-textured-soft-and-perfect gluten free muffin when you use oat flour, no oil and apple sauce?
These muffins. They were gummy. They were moist. And not like the good kind of moist. Like the bad kind that just kind of stuck to the top of your mouth…and stays there.
GAH. No Bueno.
Then. I decided to add some almond butter because
- I am secretly trying to kill Mr. FFF with my poisonous almond butter schemes so I can take all his money.
- I’m kidding.
And from here on out, I am making a wee, almond-butter sized cape, taping it to the jar in the fanciest way possible and declaring that almond butter is, in fact, the savior of all the healthy muffins.
Plus, just like those vegan protein muffins, it tastes darn good with coconut.
I also shared the Gluten Free Almond Coconut Muffins Recipe over on Food Fanatic. Be sure to pay them a visit!
