Muffin Batter

  • 2 cups almond flour blanched, fine grind
  • 3 tbsp vanilla protein powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil or ghee, melted
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup  or keto syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • zest of one lemon
  • 1/2 cup cherries, chopped if you like more fruit in your muffins, these can be made with 3/4 cup cherries. I have used both tart cherries and dark sweet cherries and both are equally delicious! Use fresh cherries or frozen. If you use frozen cherries, thaw and drain completely.

Muffin Glaze


Make the Muffin Batter

  • Preheat oven to 350℉
  • In a medium size bowl, add almond flour, protein powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix well using a whisk or a fork.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together eggs, melted oil or ghee, syrup, vanilla, and lemon zest. Mix well.
  • Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and mix well once again. Fold the cherries into the batter and spoon the batter into muffin papers, or silicone muffin liners.
  • Bake in 350℉ degree oven for 20-25 minutes until light golden brown.

Make the Lemon Ginger Glaze

  • While the muffins are baking, make the lemon glaze by mixing powdered sugar, lemon juice and grated ginger together in a small bowl.
  • When the muffins are cool, drizzle them with glaze, allow the glaze to dry, and enjoy!
  • These muffins will keep in an airtight container for 2-3 days, if they last that long!
