Roasted Strawberry Almond Flour Muffins
These healthy almond flour muffins are delicious for breakfast or a snack. Roasting the strawberries is a real game changer. It makes them sweeter and dries them out so the muffins don’t get too moist.

How do you keep muffins moist and not dry?
I only use a little butter in these strawberry almond flour muffins, but the Greek yogurt prevents them from being dry. And even though I dry out the berries by roasting them, they still add some moisture. Also, you want to make sure you don’t over-mix the batter. Stir it just enough to incorporate the flour into the wet
Strawberry Almond Flour Muffins Ingredients
- Strawberries: Slice fresh strawberries.
- Sugar: Toss some of the sugar with the berries, and the rest goes in the muffin batter.
- Flour: Almond and oat flours increase the protein and fiber while keeping the muffins gluten-free.
- Baking Soda and Baking Powder make the strawberry muffins rise and give them a fluffy texture.
- Butter: Make sure your butter is at room temperature so it mixes easily with the sugar.
- Eggs: Use three egg whites or two large eggs.
- Vanilla Extract for flavor
- Greek Yogurt: You’ll need one cup of fat-free Greek yogurt.
How to Make Almond Flour Muffins
- Roast the Strawberries: Sprinkle two tablespoons of sugar over the strawberries. Place the berries on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet in a single layer and roast for 25 minutes at 375°F until the strawberries release their liquid and caramelize.
- Dry Ingredients: Whisk the oat and almond flours, baking soda, and baking powder.
- Wet Ingredients: In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar for about two minutes with a hand mixer. Beat the egg whites and vanilla in a small bowl and pour into the butter/sugar mixture. Stir in the yogurt.
- Mix the flour mixture with the wet ingredients until combined. Fold in the strawberries with a spatula and spoon into a lined muffin tin.
- Bake the almond flour muffins at 375°F for 18 to 20 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Should you refrigerate almond flour muffins?
You can store these strawberry almond flour muffins at room temperature for up to three days. Let them cool before placing them in an airtight container. You can refrigerate them or freeze them for up to three months. To reheat, microwave them straight from frozen until heated through, or thaw them
in the refrigerator before microwaving.
- Blueberry Muffins: Swap strawberries for blueberries or another type of berry.
- Frozen Berries: You can use frozen strawberries if fresh aren’t in season.
- Spices: Add a little cinnamon.
- Strawberry Bread: Pour the batter into a loaf pan and bake at 350°F for about 50 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean.
