Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup arrowroot flour
  • 1 tablespoon ghee melted or softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cups and 1/2 blanched almond flour
  • 1 tablespoon coconut flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • pinch of cream of tartar
  • 1/2 cup nondairy chocolate chips I usually use a combination of mini semi-sweet and dark chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Prepare a muffin tin by spraying with oil (I like coconut oil) for 6 muffins
  3. In an electric mixer, beat egg, arrowroot, ghee, vanilla, salt, water, maple syrup, and lemon juice for 2 minutes until somewhat frothy. Set aside for 15 minutes.
  4. In the meantime, in a medium mixing bowl, whisk together almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda, cream of tartar and cinnamon, until there are no lumps.

  5. Add to mixing bowl with wet ingredients and beat for 1 minute.
  6. Add chocolate chips and stir with a spoon to combine.

  7. Fill the muffin tin for 6 muffins (completely fill).
  8. Bake for 20-25 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean.

Recipe Notes

Can You Bake With Almond Flour?

  • Yes, creating grain-free and gluten-free baked goods with almond flour is a delicious alternative to regular flour.  You just need good recipes.

Can I Substitute Almond Flour For Regular Flour?

  • Yes, generally speaking, it is a 1:1 exchange, but it depends on the recipe.  The recipe will also need a variation of the binding agents or eggs as almond flour recipes usually require more of this.

What Almond Flour Is The Best?

  • For baked goods, blanched almond flour creates the fluffiest, best textured baked goods.
