Strawberry vanilla muffins


This is a lovely light, moist muffin made from almond flour. Yes, I stepped away from my beloved coconut flour and make muffins from something else! They are pretty to look at and tasty to eat. The batch I made did not make it through to the next day….we scoffed them all!

Almond flour is basically ground blanched almonds. It is sold here in Dubai as almond powder. The muffin batter will be very runny, but don’t cooks well into a moist muffin!

2 cups almond flour
2 tspn baking powder
1/4 tspn salt
1/2 cup butter, melted
4 eggs
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup honey
2 tspns vanilla essence
2/3 cup chopped strawberries


  • Preheat the oven to 180C/350F degrees.
  • Mix the almond flour, baking soda and salt together.
  • In another bowl mix the butter, water, eggs, honey and vanilla essence.
  • Combine the wet and dry ingredients together, and stir well. Add the strawberries.
  • Pour the mixture into muffin liners in a muffin tin.
  • Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until firm.
  • Eat and enjoy!
