“These are seriously good muffins”, says our teenage boy. He loves and prefers egg-free baked goods, go figure. 😉
Our 10-year-old can’t eat eggs, but our 16-year-old prefers the AIP bakeds goods I make to the ones with eggs he can have. So these are stamped classic, great blueberry muffins, ever moist and delicious… plus with easy to grab ingredients!
Is this a fast and easy AIP recipe?
Yes. I know you need easy AIP recipes, with no “weird” or hard to source ingredients. This is that recipe.
Easy to whip up in a flash, AIP Blueberry Muffins will deliver that cozy Sunday morning goodness to you any day, any time. (But I do hope you’ll make them for Sunday breakfast, because warm muffins on a restful day are ever so special!)
Enjoy that parasympathetic meal that muffins help to usher in!
Mix up a batch in just 10 minutes. Then the recipe takes 25 minutes to bake if you make jumbo muffins or less time for smaller muffins.
Ingredients in AIP Blueberry Muffins
Most of us have these basic staples in our pantry, fridge or freezer:
- cassava flour — It’s actually important to use Otto’s brand in this recipe. The reason is: other brands use older roots that are starchier, and this really affects the finished texture of baked goods. Please choose Otto’s for recipe success! (Find Otto’s here. Choose the best size for free shipping or bulk pricing.)
- blueberries — Use fresh or frozen. But don’t use frozen defrosted berries, because they’ll be too wet.
- lard or coconut oil — Both work great in this recipe, so use whichever you prefer.
- coconut milk
- coconut sugar
- coconut flour
- water — Just a little bit combines with the gelatin to create the right texture. Used in place of eggs.
- collagen and gelatin — Both are needed. Collagen creates the right cakey texture, while also adding extra protein. And gelatin works in place of eggs. (Find the best sourced collagen that’s 3rd party tested for pesticide residue here. Find their gelatin here. Use code BEAUTIFUL10 for 10% off your entire order.
- baking soda and sea salt — Always basics for leavening and flavor.
Now look at the inside texture of AIP Blueberry Muffins and how well they turn out!
How to make AIP Blueberry Muffins
It couldn’t be easier:
- Combine dry ingredients.
- Whisk together wet ingredients.
- Pour wet into dry, and mix together.
- Scoop into prepared muffin pan, and bake.
Muffins are done when a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Make standard size or jumbo muffins, so baking times will vary accordingly.
You can keep AIP Blueberry Muffins on the counter, sealed, for one day.
If you plan to eat them within a few days, just wrap and refrigerate.
For long term storage, freeze muffins in a sealed container for up to 3 months. To defrost, simply leave out at room temp for several hours or overnight.

Are AIP Blueberry Muffins healthy?
This recipe is packed with nutrition, as well as being a treat:
- Cassava flour is a great source of complex carbohydrates and resistant starch.
- Lard is full vitamins D, E, the antioxidant selenium and fatty acids. Or, use unrefined coconut oil for its benefits.
- Collagen provides extra protein and “non-essential” (but much needed) amino acids.
If you’re not on the AIP diet, but perhaps you don’t eat eggs, dairy, grains or nuts, I think you’ll love these muffins too!
Even those not on a restricted diet will enjoy AIP Blueberry Muffins. They have a wonderful texture!
