PB&J Almond Flour Muffins

You wanted gluten-free recipes for January, and I’m here to deliver gluten-free recipes!  I wanted to make a delicious (and wholesome) baked good with almond flour, and this recipe came to me while I was developing  some post-workout cravings. I wanted something filling, sweet and salty. These muffins are all of those things, but most importantly, they are easy to whip together and make for a GREAT snack. You don’t need to keep stocking up on your fave protein bars if you can just keep these in your fridge/freezer all week.

Think about it: these are like a classic PB&J sandwich, but instead of being served on bread…. it’s served inside of, well, ground up almonds!!!

What if I don’t want to use jam? Trying to lower my sugar intake! 

I’m a jam girl. I loooove my jam and preserves, BUT you can always go healthier with this. You can opt for a low sugar or sugar-free all natural jam. Or, you can even pop whole berries inside these muffins before baking to get that same fruitiness with the almond butter. See the notes at the bottom of the recipe for the full instructions!

Notes

Instructions for using whole berries instead of jam or preserves:

Skip the jam step and instead, put a whole blackberry, whole raspberry, or a few blueberries in the center of the raw batter, on top of the almond butter. Bake uninterrupted for the 20 minutes.

I prefer these with blackberries since they maintain their structure when they are baked, and perfectly fit in the center of the muffin.

    I’m super impressed by how delicious & moist these muffins are! Every time I use almond flour for a recipe it comes out good, but a little dry & grainy. These muffins didn’t turn out grainy or dry at all and are the perfect accompaniment to some coffee . Not to mention they’re crazy easy to make! We stan an easy muffin recipe! My husband loves these and always requests them when he’s having a rough day because they always cheer him up. 100% recommend!
