This is a great healthy muffin recipe which is gluten-free and grain-free. These cherry muffins are lightly sweetened with a bit of honey and vanilla yogurt makes them incredibly moist. Since they’re made with almond flour, they’re much more filling and satisfying than conventional wheat flour muffins, so these make a great on-the-go breakfast that will hold you over until lunch time.

This recipe was inspired by Organic Thrifty’s grain-free muffins, which in turn was inspired by a recipe in a grain-free cookbook. I suppose we home cooks always like to tweak things to leave our signature on a dish.

Grain-free Cherry Macadamia Muffins

First, preheat your oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit and prepare your muffin tins or foil wrappers by lightly oiling them. I love the foil things because they just sit on top of a regular cookie sheet – much easier to clean.

Mix the ingredients together in a bowl:

  • 2 1/2 cups almond flour (almond meal is the same thing). If you don’t have any you can use a food processor or coffee grinder to make some really quickly.
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup vanilla yogurt (make sure you get a good kind, not one with HFCS or gross ingredients in it)
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 2 Tbsp honey

Then fold in:

  • 1/4 cup macadamia nuts, chopped (optional)
  • 1 cup cherries, pitted

Bake for 30-40 minutes. Cool, and enjoy.

    Wondering if heavy whipping cream could be subbed for the yogurt?

  5. […] I wanted to tell you that I dug up an older recipe (not super old) and made it today. The muffins made with almond flour and yogurt and stuff. But in place of cherries I used strawberries and raspberries. And they aren’t making me sick! […]
