Egg Free Almond Flour Muffins

I am so excited to share this recipe with you. Before I do, I want to share the background to developing this recipe.

A client needed a grab-and-go breakfast she could eat in the car while dropping her kids off at school and keep her full during her workout. The challenge was gluten, oat, dairy and egg free. I will admit I have been dragging my feet on making baked good without eggs.

Gluten free baked goods tend to crumble and eggs are a great binder. However, they aren’t necessary. I like to use a combination of two egg substitutes when I’m baking. For this recipe, I use flax eggs and baking soda and vinegar. It worked out fabulously!

They turned out FAN-tastic. They hold together nicely, no crumbling, the texture is divine and they are delicious. My taste testers loved them. Definitely a win.

  1. I’m looking for a muffin similar to this but using more flax and less almond flour. I really like the carrot raisin Flax4life muffins that they sell at Natural Grocers and Whole Foods. Do you have any recipes that are more like that?

      I’m SO happy to hear that you like them and made them your own. I am sure it will inspire others to add a variety of mix-in’s

  2. I love, love this recipe. This is the first eggless muffin recipe that I tried that completely hit the spot. The honey was just the right amount of sweetener, and the whole taste experience was delightful. Thank you for this, and I look forward to trying more eggless wonders from you.

    We really enjoyed this recipe! Used your chocolate chip suggestion. Wanted to make it again this week so bought raspberries for something different! Of course, my husband wants chocolate chips in the batter every time. lol I particularly like recipes with flax eggs so thank you very much for this one! They’re very tasty and satisfying!

  4. Hello Marian, not sure why but my dough is super thick I had to add more and more milk to even combine wet and dey ingredients..did I miss something? 😀 thank you

    1. Hi Lucia, Sometimes it varies depending on your altitude and the humidity in the air. Gluten free/Grain free baking can be more finicky than gluten-y baking. Thank you for reaching out!
