I have to confess that those big, sweet, bakery-style muffins aren’t my favorite. I do love muffins, but I prefer them on the subtle end of the sweet spectrum.
These Coconut Almond Muffins fit the bill perfectly. They’re just sweet enough for a little morning treat. Plus, the combination of crunchy almonds and sweet coconut is irresistible!
Maybe best of all, you can have these muffins mixed and in the oven in a matter of minutes. You won’t even need to get out your mixer! I like to measure the milk in a larger than necessary measuring cup so I can mix the other wet ingredients in the same cup. I’m all for keeping the dirty bowl count to a minimum and cutting down on clean-up time. How wonderful to have a batch of homemade muffins without a lot of fuss and mess!
These muffins bake up so nice and tall. They aren’t dainty, crumbly muffins. No, they’re nicely dense and sturdy, making them a great grab-and-go treat.
I love the lightly sweet flavor of these muffins, but I know that some of you may want them a tad sweeter. If you’d like to add just a little more sweetness, try sprinkling a pinch of coarse sugar on top of the muffins before baking them.
These lovely muffins are just the thing for a quick breakfast treat or afternoon snack. They mix up so quickly and easily that they’re a great pick for a sweet treat on a lazy weekend. They’ll stay fresh in an airtight container for a few days. Enjoy them at room temperature, or warm them slightly if you prefer.

Have you tried substituting almond flour for some of the AP flour? Think I might want to try that.
I haven’t, but that’s a great idea! I’d probably substitute for about 1/2 cup.
These sound awesome! I think the office crew would like these for breakfast.
Wishes for tasty dishes,
Hi Jennifer! I’ve been making a modified version of these for awhile, and enjoy them so much that I featured them on my own blog (linking back to you, of course!) Thanks for a great recipe! http://alovelettertofood.com/recipe/coconut-almond-muffins/
Soft and tasty muffin. Best taste for breakfast. My family love it much. Thanks
I didn’t have almonds on hand, but I did substitute 1/2 cup of AP flour for almond flour. These came together so quickly and were just the right amount of sweet. My family is a huge fan of coconut and these hit the spot perfectly. Thank you for this recipe. I will definitely make these again!
That’s great to hear, Jane!
Could these be made into mini muffins?
That should work, Ronda. I’ve not tried it with these muffins, so I can’t say for sure. But I’d try reducing the baking time by about a third.
I use ground almonds instead of chopped, and unsweetened ground coconut. Also substituted 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour for 1/2 cup of white flour. These muffins are outstanding! Thank you so much!
I’m so glad you like them, Becky!
