I have a passion for coconut flour recipes. My favorites are the coconut flour brownies, coconut flour shortbread cookies, and my coconut flour pancakes for breakfast. But today, I am craving blueberry muffins, so here’s a moist, fluffy, sugar-free muffin recipe using coconut flour, eggs, coconut milk, and blueberries.

Ingredients For Coconut Flour Muffins

It’s very easy to make coconut flour muffins. It requires only a few steps and just 6 ingredients.

Ingredients for Coconut Flour Muffins in various bowls and ramekins with labels.

  • Coconut Flour – Fresh with no lumps. Make sure you fill the measuring cup with a spoon, then lightly pack the coconut flour in the cup and swipe the extra on top. You don’t want too much coconut flour. The muffins will be crumbly. Learn how to pick low-carb flour.
  • Large Eggs – The size of the eggs is crucial in making moist coconut flour muffins. In fact, coconut flour is high in fiber, and if your eggs are small, the texture of the muffins will be grainy and dry. Also, make sure they are at room temperature for the best result.
  • Full-Fat Canned Coconut Milk or half-half if you prefer to use a dairy product. It’s essential to use high-fat milk in this recipe, or the coconut flour muffins will be dry.
  • Melted Coconut Oil, melted ghee, or melted butter.
  • Vanilla Extract – I am using one tablespoon of vanilla. It sounds like a lot, but it will mask any coconut flavor. You can also use lemon juice instead. It goes so well with these coconut flour blueberry muffins.
  • Blueberries – fresh or frozen. If frozen, you can roll the blueberries into one tablespoon of coconut flour or cornstarch, so the blueberries don’t sink to the bottom of the paper liners.

Expert Tips To Bake Muffins With Coconut Flour

  • Measure ingredients with precision. To succeed in making moist coconut flour muffins with bakery-style texture, you have to use the exact amount of liquid to dry ingredients. This is because coconut flour has four times more fiber than other flour. Therefore, too much coconut flour absorbs lots of liquid, resulting in dry muffins. For that, make sure you are using large eggs and cups to measure liquids.
  • Use ingredients at room temperature. Bring the eggs to room temperature for 30 minutes before baking, and cool the coconut oil. This prevents the coconut flour from forming lumps.
  • Shake the coconut flour to remove lumps. Coconut flour that has been stored for a while clumps up. Shake the canister to remove any lumps or break them with your finger before measuring the flour.
  • Use fresh coconut flour. Coconut flour that goes other than the expiry date won’t taste good and it won’t absorb the liquid as much.
  • Use full-fat ingredients – don’t swap canned coconut milk for carton coconut milk, or almond milk. Coconut flour must be combined with fatty milk or ingredients to deliver moist, fluffy baked goods.

Making The Coconut Flour Muffin Batter

It’s very easy to make coconut flour muffins. It requires only a few steps and ingredients.

Making Coconut Flour Muffin batter

  1. Whisk the eggs, and sugar-free sweetener – you can use allulose or erythritol.
  2. Pour the cooled, melted coconut oil, vanilla extract, and canned coconut milk.
Making Coconut Flour Muffins
  1. Add the coconut flour and baking powder into the coconut flour muffin batter and keep whisking.
  2. Whisk energetically to remove any lumps that may form.
Making Coconut Flour Muffins
  1. Fold in blueberries – if you are making coconut flour blueberry muffins, or any other fruits or chocolate chips. Stir to incorporate.
  2. Line a 12-hole muffin pan with muffin paper liners and use a cooking oil spray to lightly oil the paper. Fill them evenly with the coconut flour muffin batter.

Baking Coconut Flour Muffins

Bake the coconut flour muffins for 30 to 35 minutes in preheated oven to 350°F (180°C). When the top is lightly golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the middle of the muffins comes out clean, the coconut flour blueberry muffins are ready.

Let the muffins cool down in the pan for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack. Cool at room temperature on a rack before eating.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I Substitute The Erythritol?

Erythritol is one of the sugar-free crystal sweeteners. In this recipe, it doesn’t only bring sweetness but also texture.
As a result, it can’t be swapped for a liquid sweetener like maple syrup, or the batter would be wet and sticky.
But it can be swapped for any other similar crystal sweeteners like allulose, tagatose, or coconut sugar if you don’t mind the carbs.

Can I Replace The Egg?

Unfortunately not, this recipe doesn’t really work with commercial egg replacers, flaxseed eggs, or chia eggs.

Can I Swap The Blueberries?

You can replace the blueberries with sugar-free chocolate chips if you prefer.

    30 Thoughts On Coconut Flour Muffins
  1. 5 stars
    Hi,
    Thanks for the recipe. It looks so appetizing. Would it be possible to use maple syrup instead of erythritol?

    • Changing a granulated sweetener by a liquid sweetener usually thin out the batter and it can keep the muffins too moist. If you don’t mind sugar maybe try coconut sugar as an healthy swap

  2. I can’t wait to try these I am a professionally trained chef and since being diagnosed type 2 I am now eating a ketogenic diet. Based on your suggestion using heavy cream with a quarter teaspoon of coconut extract instead of coconut milk and substituting blackberries for blueberries and adding a little lemon zest reduce the carb count significantly I believe

    THANK YOU!
    I’ve been searching for a delicious and easy to make recipe for so long!
    I made them and I LOVE the muffins!
    They are so delicious!

  5. 5 stars
    Made these today and enjoyed them. I did use slightly less sweetener, added a tablespoon of sugar free maple syrup to liquid mix, and used light coconut milk, not full fat. They were very moist and had a nice, well-balanced flavor. I might add shredded coconut next time.

    • I liked these but felt they were missing something…salt maybe? Also they stayed the exact shape of my scoop in the wrapper after cling which is weird. They were pretty tasty though…lemon seems like it would go well with this…or some shredded unsweetened coconut! They were good but I’d add some of my own tweaks next time.

    These are sooooo yummy the family loved them! I made them with orange and blackberries and they were so good. This recipe is definitely a keeper, can’t wait to try them different ways, thanks!!

  7. 5 stars
    Great recipe and tips. I added one more table spoon of coconut oil. I ended up with 12 muffins and 3 small ramekins. My muffins were on the smaller side. Also, I have a gas oven. Mine were almost done at 15 min. I turned down to 350 for 2 more minutes. Perfection!

  8. 5 stars
    These were AMAZING! Followed the recipe to the letter and they were moist and delicious. They reheat nicely too! This recipe is a keeper for sure. Thank you! ☺️

  9. Hello,
    In your video and liquid ingredients, you say to use coconut milk, but in your instructions, you say to use coconut cream. Which one is correct? They are two different things.
    Thank you.

    • Sorry for that missing information, it is 375 F in US or 180C in Europe. Enjoy the muffins, Take care, Carine

  10. 5 stars
    Lovely muffins and easy to make. I did reduce the Swerve by half and they were sweet enough with the berries. Cooking time was 7 mins longer because I used frozen berries. I think next time, increase the vanilla and salt. That would make them a 5/5.

  11. 5 stars
    Great recipe, I tweaked your recipe, used vegetable oil and doubled the amount of coconut milk. Have made lots of differant varieties – chocolate and raspberry, orange and poppyseed, sugar free chocolate and coconut, lime and coconut. My next experiment will be carrot and pecan. Love using your recipe as my base. Being diabetic this has allowed me to have a treat like everyone else. Thank you.

    • I won’t say yes as I did not try I am sorry. Let me know if you give this a go! Enjoy the recipe. XOXO Carine.

    Great recipe healthy moist tasty, I added a drizzle of 85% dark chocolate to the top and the whole family enjoyed! Thanks!

    • There is never enough chocolate right ? 🙂 I love the idea of this extra drizzle on top. I am very happy to hear you love those muffins. I hope you will find even more delicious recipes on the blog to try with your family. Thanks for following and testing my recipes ! xoxo Carine.
