Grain-free carrot raisin muffins made with almond and coconut flour. Loaded with cinnamon flavor and studded with raisins, these moist almond flour muffins are sweet without being too sweet and lovely topped with a little coconut butter.
Through experimenting with gluten-free baking, I’ve found that my favorite flours are almond flour, coconut flour and oat flour. Mainly because I feel that almond flour and oat flour give the closest texture to regular flour when it comes to things like cookies and muffins. I’ll occasionally buy a gluten-free flour blend for certain recipes, but these three flours are the ones you’ll see used most often here on EBF.
I’m excited because today’s recipe is a carrot raisin spin on my chocolate chip almond flour muffins I posted last year and they’re delightful. Moist, with a light and fluffy texture and the most delicious cinnamon raisin sweetness.

2 cups blanched almond flour
2 Tablespoons coconut flour
3 large eggs
1/3 cup almond milk
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup coconut sugar (or coconut nectar)
2 Tablespoons coconut oil, melted
1 cup grated carrots (about 2–3 large carrots)
1/2 cup royal raisins
1 Tablespoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
Preheat oven to 350° F.
Combine dry ingredients in a medium bowl: almond flour, coconut flour, cinnamon and baking soda.
In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, almond milk, coconut oil, honey and coconut sugar. Stir in grated carrots.
Add dry ingredients into the bowl with the wet ingredients and stir until just combined. Gently fold in raisins.
Pour or scoop dough into a muffin tin with lightly greased silicone liners or regular cupcake liners. Bake for 30 minutes or until the tops are golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean. Cool completely and enjoy!
Let the muffins cool and enjoy. Top with frosting or coconut butter if you wish.
