    Hi doc. I read something a while ago that “put me off” almonds/almond flour, etc. Now I can’t remember what it is! Maybe something to do with omega-6? I see you and many others whom I trust use almond flour quite frequently in recipes, and I have a big bag of it that I’ve been hesitant to use. Could you maybe dispel my fears? Thanks!

    • Almond flour is a healthy flour but should only be consumed in small amounts. Example: 1-2 cookies made with the flour, amounts over that can be hard on your gut to digest.

  2. Desiree says:

    Can I use regular flour instead of almond flour?

  3. Nancy says:

    Shouldn’t there be milk or water to mix in. I followed your recipe and they are all crumbly. It didn’t become a batter at all.

  4. Lucie says:

    I have Leaky Gut, ulcers, and Gerd, CPDD (Calcium Phosphate Distribution Disease) and thyroid disease.

    Additionally, I am a vegetarian. Does your Leaky Gut diet and recipes work for the above issues? Are gluten free products OK to consume?

  5. Shahla says:

    I would like to bake some cake with coconut flour. Please tell me some recipe for that

  6. Jackie says:

    On another note, how do I eat bone broth? do you really just drink it?

  7. Jackie says:

    I have been told that I have inflammation in the lung, my asthma is really bad. My question is …. Is inflammation in the lung the same as inflammation in the gut, or does everything come back to the gut?” will using gluten free ,dairy free, grain free diet, plus supplementation heal inflammation anywhert? or is it different with asthma? is asthma an autoimmune disease too?

  8. Kristine says:

    I have ovarian cysts and fibroids. I’ve read that systemic enzymes are good for this. Do you have any information regarding systemic enzymes and reducing cysts? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  9. Gabriela Riofrio Ciufo says:

    I just found out that my son, who has chrons, is allergic to eggs. I have substituted 1 tbsp of Chia seeds in 3 tbsp of water (let sit for 15 mins) for each egg, but the batter is way undercooked, while the outside is way overcooked… can u please help me with this?

  10. MorningJoy says:

    Dr Axe, thank you for sharing this path of continual journey in health and true wellness with us! Looking forward to your wisdom of gut health and new non-grain & healthy recipes in 2015. Blessings to you and your family.

  11. Michelle Foster says:

    Ok.. Not sure who actually tested this, but it does not work. Comes out dry and a crumble. Redo

  12. Kathleen says:

    This recipe worked out perfectly for me. My husband and I love them!! I added extra fresh blueberries and the result was totally scrumptious! Thanks for a great recipe!

  13. Jo says:

    Had these this morning for breakfast, pretty tasty with my raw milk. My breakfast for the week is set. Thanks for another option, I was getting tired of eggs every morning.

  14. Aj says:

    Great recipe Dr Josh! Just made them and they turned out perfect! So happy to surprise Alyn with them tomorrow!!

  15. [email protected] says:

    These are fabulous! Tried them out this morning. So delicious. Question… do you have any idea the calorie count per muffin? Thanks for this amazing recipe!

  16. KDK says:

    Soaked or sprouted almonds and other nuts digest better so if you could get almond flour from soaked nuts it should be digested better. I like to soak my nuts in filtered water with sea salt for this reason plus they are easier to eat and I like the taste better

  17. Christah cato says:

    Worked well. Just turned purple :)

  18. Taylor says:

    I just tried these out & had the same problem with the dough being crumbly, so I added a little more coconut oil & some water to make the flour stick. Came out hard/crunchy on top & then mushy in the middle. Bummer

  19. Helen Green says:

    Two comments. When I request to print the recipe it also prints all of the comments and there 12 pages of comments. Is there a way to just print the recipe?

    Secondly, I think this is an absolutely brilliant website but it would be nice to see a clean eating category or a sugar free category. At least if there is a sugar free category I can then request gluten free and sugar free and those two together equal clean eating.

    Under allergies it would be nice to be able to select diabetes

  20. Carol says:

    I just discovered you after watching the Fat Summit, Im from Mexico and Im studying to be a Health Coach and I need more recipes like this. I just baked muffins for the first time. They are just great! thanks

  21. Angela says:

    What can you use besides almond flour? My daughter is severely allergic to all nuts.

  22. Toni says:

    I of course changed up this recipe too. 😊 I had only two eggs so I added a big dollop of plain Greek yogurt. Someone mentioned that honey should not be used for baking so I used one individual container of unsweetened applesauce. The muffins turned out moist and yummy. 🙃

  23. Elizabeth Reinbold says:

    Hi doc axe I love your blueberry muffin recipe. But I seem to have s problem with “Flours”. Don’t know if this is permanent or temporary.

  24. Lauren says:

    Thank you Dr. Axe! Look delicious… Love all of your simple, healthy recipes!

  25. Barbara says:

    Does anyone know the weight of the almond flour? It can be easily switched to another flour by weight

  26. Marilyn Olsen says:

    I am thrilled, the muffins are delicious. I used ghee,also I used 1/2 c of amaranth to 1 1/2 almond flour, they are lite &moist and I didn’t notice the fact that I missed getting the vanilla in. Oh and I used liquid stivea, but only 9 drops. Not sweet but perfect for me.

  27. Karen says:

    I tried these. Followed recipe perfectly. They were good but a bit grainy and oily. I used the lesser amount of coconut oil. Any ideas? Has anyone made adjustments that address this? TIA

  28. Katie says:

    Can you use frozen blueberries?

  29. Rita says:

    These muffins are delicious but I find the batter is too wet. So I either add 1/4,cup of flour, making them now not gluten free or I cut down the eggs to two. I will try adding coconut flour as that absorbs liquid.

  30. Cindy says:

    I just had the blueberry muffins for breakfast. They were great. I added a little GF oatmeal, org. raisins & dried cranberries, as well. Yummy! Thank you Dr. Axe. I appreciate all the great information you provide us all for better health. I bought your book, “Eat Dirt,” and i am excited to read it :)

  31. Lyn says:

    I’m wondering if all bakers are from the US or others whose recipes didnt work are using non US measuring? Cups and spoon measurements are different in the US from UK and Australia.

  32. Ellen says:

    I would like to try this with coconut flour.

  33. Nancy says:

    I added 4 Tbsp of Organic plain yogurt (Straus) and 1/4 cup organic unsweetened almond milk. Not dairy free but they turn out moist and perfect.

  34. Karen says:

    Delicious recipe, Dr. Axe. The muffins turned out great for me (I used ghee in place of coconut oil). I love your healthy recipes and amazingly, my kids love them too! And btw, I drink your green superfood every morning and love that also :) Thank you so much for helping to educate us on how to stay healthy!

  35. Alissa says:

    I added a scoop of vanilla bone broth protein powder to your blueberry muffin recipe and it was AMAZING!

  36. Carrie says:

    Muffins are excellent.
    Could you please provide the macros for this recipe?
    Thank you

  37. Raine says:

    Just made these as mini binders! Beautiful!


    Dr Axe.
    My husband has MS & was on avonex for about 19 years & ended up with a severe pancreatitis & was taken by ambulance to the hospital. this occurred a little over a year ago. His bloodwork results were horrific when he was so sick. Doctors could not determine the cause other than possibly becoming very sick over the year of taking the heavy duty ms medication. He was taken off Avonex & then put on Abaugio for 1 year. He was sicker than ever every day for a year, (nausea, etc). Finally the Dr took him off all MS medication & advised that he has no quality of life at this point & the medication had probably run its course in helping to delay the progression of the disease. My husband has bouts of extreme fatigue. I am trying to get him to eat better ex: less sugar, wheat & dairy. Also, he has started to walk on the treadmill when possible. He has bouts of dizziness, even more so lately. He is now trying to get off of his thyroid medication mylan-levothyrox 0.1 mg. He is down to 1/2 dose but his recent bloodwork showed that his numbers were somewhat off. Is there a natural way to wean yourself off of these meds? We have just started introducing him to brazil nuts, avacodos & coconut oil. (healthy fats) hoping that would help. Are there any suggestions that you would recommend to wean off the meds naturally? it seems that most doctors are reluctant to make any changes to the meds once on them. Thank you.

    Everyone loves these blueberry muffins, whenever i bake these.
    One question though, some friends and relatives are allergic to “Almonds” , any Substitution suggested, keeping it Gluten-free, of course! Thanks!!
