The Best Blueberry Muffins

Our favorite blueberry muffin recipe, equally loved by those who need to eat gluten-free and those who don't

Moist, light, and full of juicy blueberries!

These gluten-free Blueberry Muffins were requested again… You know something’s really good when you’re asked to make more!  In fact, they have been our favorite blueberry muffin recipe for years.

Recipe adapted from America’s Test Kitchen, these muffins are the perfect texture– moist, light, and full of juicy blueberries.  We make them using GFJules flour, eliminating the need for xanthum gum in the original recipe.

They are very adaptable to tastes or dietary needs. I’ve made them with dairy-free butter sticks, ghee and regular butter.  I’ve made them with cane sugar and coconut sugar.  And I’ve made them with milk based and almond milk yogurt.  Each time the recipe works.  My personal favorite is baking them with ghee, coconut sugar and almond milk yogurt.

No matter your preference, give them a try. They are one of the first gluten-free muffin recipes we ever made and it’s still a fan favorite!

    1. Of course! Just use an all purpose gluten-free flour that already contains xanthun gum. Xanthum gum acts as “the gluten” in gluten-free breads giving it elasticity and acting as a binding agent.

  1. These were so moist and yummy! We used butter and cup for cup flour and they turned out great. I stored half in the fridge then froze the other half. Thank you for the recipe. We can’t wait to make them again.
