It has been 7 days since I moved to our new home Manchester, a small town in South Vermont. It is hard to believe, but even in such a short time, it already feels like home. Weather here is the exact opposite of our previous location, Virgin Gorda, but the fact that it is so small reminds me of our life in the Caribbean.

Similar to the islands, most everyone knows each other and is so helpful and welcoming. I have been taking a lot of photos and plan on “showing you around” in a separate post in the next few weeks. So stay tuned for that.

We are currently staying at a hotel, but after an intense search, yesterday we found a place to live. Since it is such a small town, the options were very limited. However, we feel lucky as this house checks almost every box on our list. With 3-bedrooms and a big backyard, it is close to the center of the city. Though it is an older property, it is spacious and well-maintained.

Also, I am told that it embodies the quintessential characters of New England living. This is a new concept for me, one that I want to learn more about, but so far I am enjoying what the New England living offers to its new residents. We will be moving at the end of the month, once we get our stuff delivered from Atlanta. Needless to say, I cannot wait for us to move into our new house.

Ingredients for gluten free Blueberry Muffins

Meanwhile, I am spending my days doing a lot of reading, resting and some admin work in the backend of the blog. The fact that I can’t cook and share recipes with you on a regular basis is hard, but I am keeping a positive attitude, as this period is temporary. In the mean time, today I am popping in to share these flourless blueberry muffins. I made and photographed them right before I left Atlanta.

About These Flourless Blueberry Muffins Recipe:

These muffins are called flourless, as they are made without all-purpose flour, which is what most muffins recipes call for. Instead, this recipe uses almond and coconut flours as the base of the batter.

This was my first time using these flours for muffins so I didn’t know what to expect. However, after the first bite, I was happily surprised by how light, moist, and flavorful they turned out. Plus, the fact that they were sweetened with mashed ripe bananas and maple syrup, made it all the better. Not to mention, a much healthier option when you want to splurge on a muffin for breakfast.

A Few Baking Tips:

  • Be sure to use soft ripe bananas with black speckles on it. If you use bananas that are too ripened and turned brown, you will end up with gummy muffins that might not be ideal.
  • Keep an eye on them after the 15-minute mark during the baking process. The original recipe suggested that they should be baked after 15-minutes, but my muffins baked right after the 20-minute mark.
  • These muffins are best on the day that they are baked. However, if you keep them in the fridge in an airtight container, they will still be fresh up to 2 days. When ready to eat, just warm them in the microwave for 30 seconds for a delicious breakfast.

  1. I just found you website today. So many wonderfully sounding recipes! I am allergic to bananas. Is there anything that could replace them in this recipe?

    1. Hi Kay,
      I am thrilled to hear that you found me. Thanks for your sweet words about my site.
      I have not tried it in this particular recipe but I find that applesauce is a great substitute when it comes to baking. Come fall, I make a big batch of my homemade applesauce and keep in the freezer to use throughout the year.
      I hope this helps.

  2. Hello, I would like to try this recipe. I know you said any other natural oil but I just want to make sure if I use coconut oil it should be fine?

    1. Hi Nathasha,
      Yes, coconut oil would work perfectly in this recipe.
      I am making some today too. 🙂
      I hope you like it as much as we do.

  3. This recipe sounds great but I am vegan. What would you use instead of eggs in this recipe? I just made a horrible batch of muffins using a Pinterest recipe for almond flour muffins. I followed it to a T but no success. It didn’t call for eggs and didn’t rise. I’m thinking of adding flax egg and rebaking them…anything would be an improvement ?

    1. Hi Cacia,
      Himm.. I know a lot of people who are following a vegan diet swap eggs with flax eggs in various recipes. I would assume that flax eggs might work in this recipe, but it is hard for me to tell you without actually trying it.
      I will be on the look out for a similar vegan recipe and let you know if I find it. Come blueberry season, I’ll try this one with flax eggs and see if it works as well.
      Hope this helps.

  4. 5 stars
    I never know what to do with my almond flour so I used it in this recipe and they were truly amazing. I plan on experimenting with other fruits in the future. Thank you for sharing.

    1. So glad to hear that Caroline. These are my go-to muffins on the weekend, especially during the blueberry season. Thanks for letting me know.

  5. Ohh moving is always so exciting!! wish you all the best <3 These muffins look absolutely perfect, wish we could have them for a late breakfast now 🙂

  6. Congrats on your move! It sounds like you’re in such a dreamy location. Speaking of dreamy, these muffins! So gorgeous, Aysegul <3

  7. I’m so happy you two found a quaint place in town. It sounds lovely, Aysegul!  These muffins look SO good. I’ve never baked with coconut flour, but am intrigued by its texture and flavor. Delicious work my dear! xo

  8. Yay thank you for posting this recipe! I am definitely trying this sometime soon. I hope you are settling into your new home in Vermont. Your photos make it look like it is just the perfect winter wonderland! 

    1. Hi Madeline.. I am so glad you liked it. I had you in my mind as I was making it. 🙂
      Vermont has exceeded my expectations. It is cold but its beauty makes up for the 12 degree weather.
      Hope you are well. Cheers!

    2. I see the recipe doesn’t call for a binding agent such as xanthum gum or arrowroot? I’m new to gluten free baking and just curious why.

      1. Hi Tami,
        Good question.
        I am no food scientist, but I think the binding agent in this recipe is the eggs. Additionally, when used in baking, almond flour holds the moisture quite well.
        I hope this helps.

    1. Hi Renate,
      I have never tried it with honey, but I don’t see why not.
      Though I’d use a little less as honey is usually sweeter.
      I hope this helps.
