Soft, light and buttery chocolate chip almond flour muffins!
These are Layla’s favorite muffins so you know they are kid-approved!
Layla is my 3-year old niece and she’d “like to have chocolate chippies, please.”
This is a one-bowl muffin recipe and perfect to make with your kids. Their favorite part will probably be adding the chocolate chips…or eating them.
Almond flour makes for very light and fluffy muffins.
I do use a bit of all-purpose flour to give these muffins more structure, however, you can skip it if you are gluten-free.
Almond flour is a popular alternative to traditional wheat flour. It’s low in carbs, packed with nutrients and has a slightly sweeter taste.
The process of making almond flour involves blanching almonds in boiling water to remove the skins, then grinding and sifting them into a fine flour.
You can also substitute the chocolate chips for the dairy free kind and use your favorite milk alternative.
I almost always have homemade almond milk on hand and use it in baking all the time!
Instead of butter, I prefer an oil-based muffin and like using virgin coconut oil, avocado or vegetable oil.

Quick Prep Work
Move your eggs from the refrigerator to your kitchen counter at least 30 minutes to an hour before baking. You can also add your cold eggs to a bowl filled with lukewarm water to make the process faster.
Eggs that are at room temperature will mix into the batter better and will give you a better end result.
Use a small sauce pan or the microwave to warm up your milk to 100F°-110F°. The milk should be warm but not hot.
Using warm milk will help melt the sugar while mixing, this also helps with creating the perfect texture muffin.
If you are using virgin coconut oil and it is at the solid stage, warm it lightly until it is mostly liquified.
Lastly, preheat your oven to 350F°.
Mix The Wet Ingredients
In a large bowl, combine the sugar and oil. Whisk to combine.
Next, add the warm milk and whisk well to combine.
Add the eggs and mix well to combine.
Add The Dry Ingredients
Bake The Muffins
Line a muffin/cupcake tin with liners then fill them up with the muffin batter about 3/4 way full.
Add a couple more chocolate chips on top if desired.
This batter makes 8-10 muffins.
Bake the muffins in your preheated 350F° oven for 20 minutes.
The muffins will be pale. The color is mainly determined by your egg yolks. If you use eggs with a light yellow yolk, your muffins will be lighter in color.
Allow the muffins to cool a bit before eating.
