When my girls were young and we were homeschooling I would often bake a batch of blueberry muffins for a mid-morning treat. I would usually serve them with a little cup of milk in special little teacups. Often times, they came from a pre-packaged muffin mix that was quick and easy to make.

    These look great, Robin–can’t wait to try them:) Thanks for your willingness to share your hard work with others~Blessings!

    • MamaShire (Author)

      Thank you, Rhonda! It’s my pleasure. I hope you enjoy them.

  2. Teresa

    Just wondering if this could be made in a loaf pan instead.
    Also, I tend to use Gentle Sweet more than any other sweetener. Any idea how much would equal your truvia?

    • MamaShire (Author)

      I haven’t tried it in a loaf pan, but I imagine it would work. It would take a little longer to bake, probably 30-45 minutes ??. Just keep an eye on it and check for doneness. I would love to know if you do and how it turned out. And I haven’t used the Gentle Sweet yet, but this conversion chart should help give you direction on how much to use. http://www.trimhealthymama.com/main-home/sweetener-conversion-chart/

  3. I just made these this morning, then we left for our local ag fair. When I came home I ate one with my lunch and it is amazing! These are so very good.

    I have been doing THM for a year now and have lost 50 pounds. I don’t always love the baked goods, but these will be made frequently!

    • MamaShire (Author)

      Oh, I am so glad that you like them! And congratulations on losing 50 pounds!! That is so exciting!

  4. Steve Smith

    Wowahhh! My wife made a batch of these the other night. Dearest Lord, these are the best blueberry muffins I have ever tasted……and hate blueberry muffins. Just finished one of the last ones this morning toasted with pure butter frosting. Full of flavor. Way-da-go, Mama!

    • MamaShire (Author)

      Yay! So glad that you liked them!! Your wife must love you to pieces! πŸ™‚

  5. Steve Smith

    Oops, forgot “I” in the hate part…….:)

  6. Robin, I just baked a batch! I didn’t have xylitol or Truvia so I subbed half the amount of Super Sweet Blend (so that would be 1/4 cup). The sweetness of the muffins seemed just about right to me. I bet these would be yummy with raspberries, too! Thanks for a great recipe!

    • MamaShire (Author)

      Laura, that’s a great idea with the raspberries. I have a friend who tried it with orange extract instead of lemon and loved them. Good to know about the sweetener amount. So glad that you liked them and you are quite welcome!

  7. Anna

    These are fantastic! I made them for my mom and I, and we absolutely love them. <3 They are not dry, which is what usually happens when I use coconut flour, but these are soft and moist! I defiantly will be making these again. Thank you so much for posting! πŸ™‚

    • MamaShire (Author)

      Anna, I’m so glad that you and your mom liked them!

  8. Jaime

    Is it supposed to be a dry crumble mix when you start?

    • MamaShire (Author)

      Hi Jaime, are you asking if the flours mixed together are a dry crumble or the batter before baking?

  9. Renee Taylor

    Hi, I’m wondering if I could use the THM baking blend instead of the 2 flours? I’m not sure how much I’d use. Thanks

    • MamaShire (Author)

      Hi Renee, I haven’t made it with the THM baking blend, so I can’t give you a definite answer. If I was to try it I would use a little less of the THM blend and then just look at the batter before baking. The THM blend is going to be a much thirstier flour due to oat fiber, so it may need more liquid ingredients or you may need to add a little more blend. It really is trial and error, but don’t be afraid. If you can get the batter nice you will probably have happy muffins. πŸ™‚

    These are delicious! I a baked-goods-loving-woman-with-a-sweet-tooth, and I just started on THM, and this little gem has given me hope for my THM future! Haha… I know THM isn’t about calorie counting, BUT, I am still curious about how many calories would be in one of these? I am only asking because I ate three, and now I’m wondering if I have abused my “s” breakfast for the day haha πŸ˜‰

    • MamaShire (Author)

      Hi Katie! I use MyFitnessPal.com to find out the nutrition facts on my recipes. These muffins have 238 calories each. Yes, you’re right, THM isn’t about counting calories! Portion size is something that we all have to work out for ourselves. It can be overdone, for sure, but some people need more than others. Just learn to listen to your body. If you find you aren’t losing weight then portion size could be a factor in that. Hope you have a wonderful THM journey and here’s to a healthier lifestyle!

  11. These were great! I bought some THM SuperSweet and wanted to find a normal recipe to use it in! They turned out moist and yummy! The lemon extract helped mask any possible egg taste that I thought may be there, but there wasn’t! Great job!

    • MamaShire (Author)

      Yay! So glad that you liked them!

  12. Jenise Gogan

    I am very excited to make these. I am not a fan of coconut oil in baking. Do you think I could substitute and equal amount of butter?
    Thank you!

  13. Megan

    If I were to have these for breakfast with a collagen tea or coffee, could I have 2? Or should I stick with 1?

    • MamaShire (Author)

      Hi Megan, I think 2 would work well. 1 would just be lonely. πŸ™‚

  14. Alja

    These look great! How many muffins can we have and still be a s meal? Thank you

    • MamaShire (Author)

      Hi Alja, these muffins will be an S no matter how many you eat. πŸ™‚ But it would probably be best to keep your serving to maybe 2.

  15. Julie

    Just found your website today and all the amazing recipes that are THM compliant. I have been on plan (mostly) for about 3 months but have yet to find baked goods for my picky kiddos.. these look so good. I can’t wait to try them. I’ll let you know if they get the thumbs up!! Going to try these and so many more you have listed. Thanks so much for sharing….

  16. JD Baker

    These muffins are SO GOOD! Some of the other comments asked about subbing THM baking blend, and that’s what I did. I used 2C baking blend and 1/3C half and half to add back in some needed moisture. You could use almond milk, I’m sure, I just grabbed what was closest πŸ™‚ Seriously, these muffins are awesome. Thanks so much Robin!

  17. I am allergic to tree nuts except for coconut and I am celiac. I use cassava flour as well as coconut flour. I am going to try these tomorrow. Should I go with the cassava in place of the almond flour or since this is 2 cups of almond flour would I sub out 1/2 cup of coconut flour? the normal is 1 cup of almond flour to 1/2 cup of coconut flour.
    I use pure stevia or honey for sweetening.
    And I do not use baking soda or power as they both have corn by products in them and I am allergic to corn so I usually use cream of tartar which is gluten free and corn free.
    As you can tell I have food allergies and Celiac so when i find a good recipe I am super excited and this one looks great. I eat grain, dairy and refined sugar free so it takes work but being pain free and able to move around is so worth it. Thanks for posting recipes for others to use.

    • MamaShire (Author)

      Hi Sandi! I haven’t tried cassava flour personally, so I can’t really say. It isn’t on the Trim Healthy Mama plan which is what my recipes here at MamaShire follow. I’ve been interested in baking with it, but just haven’t yet. Not everyone in my family follows THM so I would love to be able to offer them some alternatives. We have celiac, too, so I know what you mean when you come upon a recipe that will work for your restrictions. I’d love to hear how it turns out and what you did with the recipe. πŸ™‚

  18. Shelley

    This is one of the best blueberry muffin recipes I have ever tried. Thank you so much!

  19. Alice

    Would the eggs in the recipe be enough to also consider this a protein? Or could I possibly add some of the whey protein in order to make these a “complete meal”?

    • MamaShire (Author)

      Hi Alice, I think the eggs would provide enough protein along with the almond flour.

  20. Mary

    These are excellent! I am happy to find some THM gluten and dairy free recipes! Thanks!

  21. Hayley

    I made these tonight and these were fantastic. Best dessert I have found for low-carb living so far. I’m always cautious with coconut flour since it absorbs so much and added a tablespoon of coconut oil to the recipe. They’re just perfect, thank you!

    • MamaShire (Author)

      I’m so glad that you liked them! And you’re so welcome!!

  22. Mary

    Can’t wait to try these! I wonder…would lemon zest work in place of the extract?

    • MamaShire (Author)

      Hi Mary, I haven’t tried just lemon zest in these, but I would think it would work well. Maybe a combination of the two would be excellent.

  23. Carissa

    Love these muffins only concern is I cant find the nutritional content of these muffins.
