Swapping with Frozen Blueberries

It’s so nice during blueberry season to include them fresh in this muffin, but in the dead of winter, frozen blueberries can work too! To avoid turning the muffin batter blue fold the blueberries in while they’re still frozen. They might need an extra minute or two to cook in the oven, but otherwise the recipe will work the same.

Almond flour is a delicious and nutrient dense alternative to any other flour. It is low in carbs and high in fat which makes it a great healthy flour that you can feel great about eating.

How to Measure Almond Flour

If you have an electronic kitchen scale at home, it’s best to use it here to measure almond flour. Almond flour can be tricky to measure as it can be easily compacted, even straight from the bag. The same goes for coconut flour too since it’s such an absorbent flour. Even a small measuring error with coconut flour can impact a recipe. So we’ve included the weight in grams here. Any electronic kitchen scale can switch between grams and ounces. Since grams are more precise we’re use that. If you don’t have a scale: whisk almond flour until it’s lightened up and lightly scoop the almond flour or coconut flour into the cup measurement and level it off.
