  • Pre-heat the oven to 400F and line a 12 cup muffin pan with liners. Spray the inside of the liners with cooking spray.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the almond flour, baking soda, salt, and sweetener. Now add in the beaten eggs, greek yogurt, and vanilla extract. Finally, fold in the sliced almonds.
  • Scoop the batter into the muffin cups evenly using a scoop. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.



  • I used fat free greek yogurt to make these more weight watchers friendly.  You could use sour cream but keep in mind, greek yogurt actually has less carbs than sour cream.
  • The sweetener I used was monkfruit from Lakanto.  You could also use Swerve, or another granular sweetener that is a 1 for 1 substitute with sugar.  You could even use sugar if you want!  Of course, that would increase the weight watcher points and the carb count.
  • These muffins have a delicious vanilla flavor and I added sliced almonds to give them some texture.  These would also be really good with fresh blueberries mixed in!
  • I have started weighing my almond flour as opposed to using measuring cups.  This yields a much more consistent baked good.  These almond flour muffins use 280g of almond flour.
Remove the muffins from the muffin tin and let cool completely on a sheet tray.  Place the sheet tray with the muffins into the freezer for 2 hours to flash freeze.  Remove from the freezer and place the muffins in a freezer container or bag.  Keep frozen for up to 3 months.  When you are ready to eat, remove as many as you need from the freezer and let thaw on the counter for a few minutes.
