How to make coconut flour muffins - step by step:
Benefits of Coconut Flour
I haven't waxed lyrical about the benefits of coconut flour for a while, so here we go: Coconut flour has high levels of healthy saturated fats, which balance blood sugar levels and aid the metabolism.
It is nutrient-dense, high in fibre and low in sugar. And even though you might find it expensive, a little goes a long way - it is way more absorbent than almond flour, for example, and rather filling.
Above all, I love the gentle coconutty taste! It works supremely well with the fruity blueberry bursts.

Want to make a proper cake? This Vanilla Coconut Flour Cake is the recipe you're looking for!
This mixture makes 8 muffins. They freeze well and you can keep them in an airtight container in the fridge for several days.
You can substitute the coconut oil with butter if you prefer.
If you don't have blueberries, simply replace them with other berries such as raspberries or strawberries.
Alternatively, you could also use sugar free chocolate chips or chopped nuts such as walnuts or pecans.
Instead of the vanilla extract, why not try another flavour? Almond extract always tastes great, or add in the zest of a grated orange or lemon.
I don't recommend that you try to substitute the coconut flour with another low carb flour. Coconut flour baking is a very particular beast and you would need different amounts of flour and eggs for any other low carb flour.

What is the result of using less eggs? I've used other recipes that call for a lot of eggs, and it's not just the eggy taste I dislike but also the texture. Thanks
The eggs act as a binder, so the result may be crumblier. But it's always worth doing a test and you might find less eggs also work and you like the taste! You should also consider using a little more liquid so your dough does not get too dry and maybe add a tablespoon of ground flax or chia seeds, which helps bind too.
I went to make these then realised I've only got powdered sweetener, can I use instead of granulated? Also I have freeze dried blueberries would they work here too?
Absolutely love your website and recipes!
Yes, you can use either. Freeze dried blueberries would work well too 🙂
Great thank you!
Hi, made these yesterday and they turned it really nice! Silly question.... Is the nutrition per muffin or for the batch?
I came across this recipe hunting for low carb vegan muffins. I subbed out the eggs for a flax meal replacement to make them vegan and they turned out absolutely amazing!
That is so good to know that they taste good with a flax egg! Glad you like the recipe 🙂
You have just got a new follower......fabulous hit in our house!
Good to have you here... I'm glad you found my website!!!
Just made the second batch in 2 days! So good, so moist and tasty - thanks.
These were so good, everyone loved them, from my 2 yo, to my hubby, to my mom, to our nanny....I cannot wait to try again with a mixer! I didnt have coconut cream or almond milk, so i subbed in nutpods, and it was great! I also took a portion of the batter aside and added unsweetened cocoa powder, a little extra nutpods for moisture, lillys stevia sweetened dark chocolate chips and dropped a tsp of almond butter in the center....rich and delish! i was able to get 12 smaller muffins from this recipe, which was Fabulous!! LOVE!!
Mmmmh, turning the batter into a chocolate version sounds like a great idea!!
When your using coconut oil or melted butter, do you measure it melted or while still firm ? Probably a silly question but my mix is really funny.
I normally scoop it into a measuring cup while it's firm, so I know how much to melt.
Where is your updated recipe? The one I am seeing does not include the Stevia. Anxious to try these.
Hi Cindy, I did not use the stevia in the new recipe. Thanks for pointing out that I was still talking about it in the post. If you want to use both erythritol and stevia, simply reduce the amount of erythritol you use. Check your stevia drops - mine are equivalent to 4 drops = 1 tsp of sugar (some are 5 drops = 1 tsp). So simply leave out 1-2 tsp of erythritol and use 4-8 drops of stevia instead.
Hello, would these be 3.4 net carbs per muffin?
Yes, that's correct!
These turned out very well! I have never used cocnut flour before. I had been craving something sweet and pastry like! These will save me. One thing i need to ask. Does coconut flour not have a strong flavor? They turned out great but the flavor was a little lighter than i had expected. Other than that, they are blissful! Thank you!
I think coconut flour has a gently sweet flavour, a little coconutty, but not over-powering. But you know how it is with flavours, some people hate it, some love it. I find that there are differences in coconut oils more than with coconut flours.
Fabulous!! These are the best tasting and lightest keto muffins I have made. I did whip the whites and used 4 yokes, not 6. I always mix my sweeteners, 1/2 stevia, 1/2 erythritol. Best recipe ever! Thank you so much!
Great news! Thank you for taking the time to comment Wendy 🙂
I made these today and had to blend them by hand because my mixer is broken, I believe they weren’t as good because of that (didn’t take points off ).
I did reduce the yolks by 2 but the muffins still tasted eggy to me. As soon as I get my blender I’ll make them again and this time I’ll only add 3 yolks.
Very easy to make!
Very good. I thought they would be eggy, but they were just right. Only thing I would ask, is if there's any way I can make these a little more most? They were a little dry. Other than that they were very good .
If you wanted them more moist I'd suggest to reduce the amount of coconut flour by a couple of tbsp or add a bit of coconut cream (again, probably about 2-3 tbsp)
Can you freeze these muffins? I made a big batch recently and realized I will not be able to eat them all in time. I would hate for them to go to waste. I was wondering if you've tried to freeze them and how well they held up after thawing out.
Yes, you can freeze them no problem. I've stuck them them straight in the microwave to defrost and that works fine.
Is there a big difference if you only use stevia ): wasn’t that big of a fan ? But I guess I have to get use to keto taste !
It's a personal preference. I think stevia has a metallic taste which I am not a big fan of. That's why I only use it in small amounts. But I know people who don't mind the taste at all!
I'm going to make these once the pumpkin brownies have been eaten. Yum! If I leave 2 egg yolks out do I add 2 extra whites please?
Hi Janet, I wouldn't add any more egg whites. If you feel your dough is too firm consider adding 2 tbsp of coconut cream instead.
Thanks I will buy some next time I'm out shopping 🙂
Can you use regular sugar. I’m going to make them
With/for my granddaughters. One needs gluten-free and
Dairy free so I was happy to find this recipe but their parents don’t want them to have Stevia or erthritol. They’re not that happy about regular sugar, prefer honey or maple syrup. But I will use regular sugar for my first double batch. Thanks!
Hi Deborah, of course you can use regular sugar in this recipe. Or you could use coconut sugar, which has a nice taste - a bit like brown sugar - it has a lower glycemic load than table sugar.
Hi, do you think I could substitute the coconut four for almond flour and coconut oil for butter? One of my children is anti-coconut and I have been looking for a good muffin recipe for ages. Many thanks
Yes, coconut oil and butter are interchangeable. As for the almond flour, I'd use double the amount or even a little more (this depends on how finely your almond flour is milled). See how your batter looks with double the amount - it should be thick but pourable). I have a good muffin recipe with almond flour and yoghurt which you might also like - it's these Grab & Go muffins
These are fantastic delicious filling and easy to make, it doesn't get much better than that!
WOW! For a moment I worried they would be too "eggy"... but they came out delicious and fluffy! Awesome recipe, will definitely save 🙂
Hi Ewa, I'm so glad you like the recipe. Eggy taste can be an issue with coconut flour recipes, because they generally require more eggs than, say, almond flour recipes. If you really don't want to taste eggs in recipes, you can also leave out a couple of egg yolks, because that's where the egg taste comes from.
My husband counts his macros. Why are there two completely different nutritional labels? We love these muffins and I just made my second batch!
Hey Laurie, thanks for pointing this out. I recently switched recipe plugins and the mistake must have happened then. To be 100% certain I have just re-calculated the nutrition. Sorry for the confusion. I'm very happy, however, that you've made a second batch of the muffins!!!!
Isn't stevia bad for u? It's an artificial sweetener right?
Stevia is classed as a natural sweetener - it's made from the stevia plant. You can read more about it here
Can you make this in a loaf OAN? How long baked?
You could give this a try, definitely! You'll probably have to increase the baking time by 10-15 minutes. Just wait until your loaf is browned, then insert a knife to see if it comes out clean. If not, cover the loaf with silver foil and keep it in the oven for a bit longer
Made these tonight. Very good!
Brilliant! I'm glad they turned out well. Happy you like them!!
Yes, yes, yes. Gimme one right now!!!!!! And I can totally relate to what you say about good intentions, haha!
This one is a keeper. I'm a type 2 and have been managing my condition with a low carb diet. Once you get into baking grain and sugar free, you never look back.I recently made you chocolate tart when I had friends over, and they could not tell at all it was sugar free!
I totally agree with you. I've been serving up sugar free desserts to friends for years, and they never guess... Who needs sugar, right?
Thank you for this recipe! Made them last night, as soon as I saw your post. They are so good!
I've been looking for a blueberry muffin recipe. Will try these asap!
Brilliant! The combination of coconut and blueberry got the thumbs up all around in this house
This was so yummy. Great recipe!!
