Almond Flour Blueberry Muffins

Updated: May 5, 2021

Everytime Sunday and Monday comes around, I know it's time to meal prep for a long week ahead. I always need some kind of prepped snack for a busy work week. I usually aim for some kind carb. It may be a toast with avocado or pb, rice cake, fruit or a fig bar. Sometimes I will make my banana oatmeal muffins, but when I crave a blueberry muffin, I satisfy my craving when I make these! These are perfectly moist in the center, it has just the right amount of sweetness coming from the maple syrup and the pop of blueberries give me that blueberry muffin feel without all the guilt.

These are gluten and dairy free. And no refined sugar.

A perfect on the go breakfast paired with a smoothie, midday or afternoon snack, post workout bite, these are delicious to have anytime of the day!

Enjoy!
