The Best Coconut Flour Muffins

You might remember that I’ve shown you a couple of muffin recipes that use alternative flours- like almond flour muffins and oat flour muffins but neither of them are as delicious as these.

This coconut flour muffin recipe is one you’ll add to your baking routine. 

The texture is incredible: moist, fluffy, and with a light and tender crumb

They are healthier than other muffins too, thanks to the extra fiber and protein. Using coconut flour also helps keep the carbs low too. I mean, if you use a sugar free syrup, these muffins will have just 2 grams of carbs

The best thing about these muffins is that they take seconds to prep and mere minutes to bake. The recipe is super simple too- you simply mix everything together, then bake them up!

Oh, and if you like baking with coconut flour, you’ll enjoy using it to make sandwich bread, banana bread or some peanut butter cookies!

Ingredients needed

You’ll love this simple ingredient list. If you’ve made any of my healthy desserts before, you’ve probably got everything in your pantry as we speak! 

  • Coconut flour– Be sure to sift your coconut flour, to ensure there are no clumps. 
  • Baking powder– Gives the muffins a little extra fluffiness and rise. 
  • Eggs– Room temperature.
  • Butter– Salted and softened. Dairy free butter can also be used. 
  • Milk of choice– I used unsweetened coconut milk, but any milk works. 
  • Honey OR keto honey– Gives the muffins some sweetness, and extra moisture. You can also try sugar free maple syrup
  • Vanilla extract– A must for any good muffin or baked goods. 
  • Mix-ins– Optional, but easy to jazz up the flavors. I added blueberries.

How do you make coconut flour muffins? 

Calling these muffins simple is an understatement. 

Seriously, all you do is follow an easy 3-step process: 

Step 1- Make the batter

In a small mixing bowl, combine the coconut flour and baking powder and whisk until combined. Next, in a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, butter, milk, honey, and vanilla extract, until combined. Gently fold through the dry ingredients until combined. 

Step 2- Fill the muffin cups

Now, distribute the batter amongst a 12-count muffin tin filled with muffin liners.

Step 3- Bake the muffins

Bake the muffins for around 15 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out mostly clean. Remove from the oven and allow the muffins to cool in the pan for 10 minutes, before carefully transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

Tips to make the best recipe

  • Be sure to sift your coconut flour very well before using it. Unlike other flours, coconut often clumps and sticks together.
  • Avoid over-baking the muffins, as they continue to cook as they are cooling down. 
  • For some fun variety, fold through some chocolate chips or shredded coconut. 

Storing and freezing instructions

  • To store: If you intend to eat the muffins within 2 days, they can be stored at room temperature, in a sealed container. If you’d like it to keep longer, store them in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. 
  • To freeze: Place the muffins in a ziplock bag and store them in the freezer for up to 6 months.

  1. Hi Arman, I made your Keto lemon Bluerry muffins over Christmas and my family loved them. Low carb and they were delicious. I am anxious to try these with blueberries, apples, strawberries, or any other fruit that is in season. I bet pumpkin would also be delicious. Thanks for sharing these wonderful low carb recipes. I always look for these on your site.

    1. You are so welcome, Susan- I’ll have to experiment with some new fruits coming in season here (I’d love to do pineapple!)

  2. I just made these!! (Plain, because I didn’t have any berries on hand) So, so good!! I do love me some coconut flavoring, but have never been a huge fan of the texture (same for Almond flour…And it’s been YEARS that I’ve been Keto)

    But these have changed my tune!

    Changes I made:

    Half Raw Honey, half keto maple syrup.

    No butter, and instead all coconut oil.

    Home-laid eggs, not huge…so added an additional for good measure.

    I’m stuffing my face, as we speak!! Thank you!!!

  3. What would your recommendation be to keep this recipe vegan? Can the honey be omitted altogether? Would prefer not to use maple syrup as a substitute either. Thanks!

  4. 6 eggs, Is that a typo at all? Seems like a lot of egg to flour ratio.
    Just want to double check before investing $5 worth of eggs into this ☺️

  5. 5 stars
    This is an yummy ,guilt free treat.Although while make it ,I didn’t feel confident about the outcome but the end result was delicious.

  6. Can you make this with a flaxseed ‘egg’ or some other alternative of wanting to sub things to make vegan?

  7. I made them with Flax eggs. Used half avocado & half coconut oil as butter substitute ( ran out of both honey and avocado).They took longer to bake & were soft. I didn’t have enough to fill 12 cups so they came out small. I use the silicone ones, so they’re bigger I think than the paper cups. Will try again to improve.

  8. 5 stars
    Hello Arman, making them as we speak, exact ingredients, with1/2 cup of blueberries and another of strawberries. 15 mins passed and not ready at all…. Will provide tone with berries once done and comment on deliciousness! 🙏😊

  9. 5 stars
    I added Blackberries for this recipe
    I had to bake for 28 mins. before the tooth pick came out clean.
    Soft and moist. Just saying, I think flour for baking is the better option
