    What is in almond meal? I like the sound of these muffins, unsure of being able to acquire the ingredients. They sound YUMMY.

    • Lisa says:

      Irene – Almond meal is a GF/Paleo flour made from almonds. It can be found in your grocer’s specialty or gluten free aisle. You can sub regular flour if you need to. They are one of my favorite treats to keep in the freezer for myself!

      • Irene says:

        Thank you, I shall be on the look out for this now, as these sound yummy. I do like food made from decent ingredients, in particular oats, almonds,and fruit.

    Can I use gluten free flour instead? My son is allergic to nuts :/

  3. Stefanie says:

    Is this can coconut milk or the thin refrigerated kind?

  4. Nakushita says:

    Is there a secret to getting the “crust” out with the muffin? I had to pop one out, then the other, put them back together on a cookie sheet, allow to defrost a bit so they would stick together and refreeze.

    • Lisa says:

      It may help if you line the muffin tins with paper muffin liners. They are so delicious though, mine rarely made it to the freezer!

    Holy smokes these look sooooooo goooooood!! I can’t wait to try these!

    • Lisa says:

      Rocky – They are seriously delish! I am sadly out of my stash in the freezer and need to make more…soon!

    Do you spray the paper liners?

  7. Vesta says:

    Can almond milk be used in this recipe? What oil may I use instead of coconut. I am allergic to coconut

    • Lisa says:

      Vesta – My suggestion would be to use almond milk and just omit the oil all together. Let me know how it turns out!

    What size paper liners/muffin tins do you use? Regular size or mini size? I want to make these for my son as a treat for after school!!

    I’m not into strawberries so I’m going to try these with mango and passionfruit, and maybe with blueberries. Plus a little desiccated coconut in the base.

  11. Candice says:

    oh my gosh!! these look great!! i bet you can use any type of fruit too… like blueberry, raspberry, mango… whatever!! yum yum yum!!
    can’t wait to get to the grocery store this weekend for supplies!!!

    I haven’t made this yet, but I was thinking adding some chia seeds to this would be awesome!

    • robin z says:

      Definitely! Depending on whether you would be using it in the crust or the filling it might change the texture some, but certainly a great way to get in additional omega-3’s.
