Remember how I needed fresh blueberries the other day? It was for this muffin! Since I only had frozen and didn’t want to run to the store, I researched if you can substitute. You can! If you missed it, check out Baking: How To Substituent Frozen Blueberries for Fresh. It’s so easy! I’ve been really wanting to get in to baking more with coconut flour. If you’ve been around for the last year and a half we’ve been trying to eliminate refined flours and sugars completely from our home. It’s tougher than you think! Last summer I attempted a coconut flour recipe that was a disaster and haven’t touched the flour since. I thought I’d give it a go last weekend and not only found great success, but ended up with the most delicious healthy muffin I’ve ever tasted!
We love ALL Nutiva products (and no, this is not a sponsored post, I just really love the product that much!). We have the organic virgin coconut oil, organic chia seeds, organic hemp protein, and organic coconut flour! When I looked on the back of the flour package and saw we had everything to make the muffins I was overly excited to give them a try! In competing in my health challenge healthy snacks are of utmost importance. I need something that not only fits within my calorie goals, but is quick to grab, and of course tasty. These muffins fit all of those requirements! At only 112 calories each they are perfect for my mid-morning and/or mid-afternoon snack! For being gluten & dairy free I was surprised at just how awesome they taste!!
Coconut Blueberry Chia Muffins
These Coconut Blueberry Chia Muffins are the most delicious healthy gluten & dairy free muffin you'll have! I stand behind every ingredient in this recipe and absolutely LOVE the end result. Great for the calorie conscious and even wonderful for those who aren't.
- 1 c. Nutiva Organic Coconut Flour
- 1/2 tsp. sea salt
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1/2 c. + 2 tbsp. raw honey
- 1 c. coconut milk
- 6 eggs
- 4 tbsp. Nutiva Organic Coconut Oil melted
- 4 tsp. vanilla extract
- 4 tbsp. Nutiva Organic Chia Seeds
- 1 c. fresh organic blueberries
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Sift together the coconut flour, salt and baking soda in the bowl of your stand mixer.
In a blender, blend together honey, coconut milk, eggs, coconut oil and vanilla until mixed well. Using the whisk attachment, gently whisk in the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients; add chia seeds.
Fold in blueberries and pour batter into greased or lined muffin tins, filling 3/4 full.
Bake for 25 minutes until muffins turn gold brown & toothpick inserted comes out clean. Immediately remove from tins and cool on rack.
According to My Fitness Pal, which is a more accurate representation of the nutritional value, these muffins are only 112 calories each.

Can I make this without organic items and also with regular honey?
Hi Kim, thanks for the question. You sure could make these without organic items and with regular honey! Feel free to let me know what you think of the recipe if you give it a try. :)
Hi, I just made these…very nice…though I filled up the muffin cups in the pan right to the brim and baked at 400F instead….it helped to create that domed muffin top….I only got 9 muffins this way…so maybe next time I will double the recipe?
Made these for myself and the housemates the other day, everyone really liked them. Very moist, and the chia added some nice texture. I could even do without that 2 extra tbsp of maple syrup as they’re quite sweet (pumping up the moisture elsewhere of course).
So happy you liked them – they are favorites of ours for sure!
I made them for the first time with visiting relatives and their two small boys. We all loved them and had fun. Pauline Scottish Borders
Awesome! So happy you loved them, they are a favorite in our house for sure!
I always seem to have problems with coconut flour I made these and the flour just seemed to soak up all the wet ingredients
Cooking with coconut flour is quite different than cooking with regular flour. The key is to make sure you use enough liquid. Give these muffins a try (unless you have already). This was my first successful recipe with coconut flour!
I am loving chia seeds! This looks like a recipe I’m going to have to try!
Aren’t chia seeds great? I have been loving using them when I can! You’ll love these muffins if you try them!
Thank you for this! Having gone gluten/dairy/refined sugar and basically all processed food free for just over 2 months now I’ve been looking for recipes that can be grab’n’go. Looking forward to making this with local organic blueberries this weekend :-)
You’re welcome! They are absolutely DIVINE! I loved them so much!
