Gluten Free Blueberry Muffins

These Gluten Free Blueberry Muffins are so light and fluffy they make the perfect breakfast or midday treat whether you follow a gluten free diet or not. 

Blueberry muffins have been one of my favourite muffins for years. The blueberries add a lovely sweetness to the deliciously soft and fluffy muffins. When my Coeliac friend Zoe came to stay, I had the perfect excuse to try out some Gluten Free Blueberry Muffins.

When I make any gluten free recipe, I always like Zoe to taste it and give her opinion. She has far more experience with gluten free food than I will ever have, so I really value her option. When she gives me the thumbs up, I know a recipe must be good because she has unfortunately had a few less then great bakes!

The Gluten Free Blueberry Muffins didn’t just have to be suitable for people on a gluten free diet; they had to be tasty enough for everyone. Just because recipes are gluten free, they shouldn’t taste like they are lacking something. 

As with other gluten free bakes, these Gluten Free Blueberry Muffins tend to become drier more quickly than those using standard flour. Therefore I would recommend either eating all of the muffins in a couple of days (go on, try it!) or freezing some on the day you baked them. Muffins freeze really well and it means you then have tasty muffins at your fingertips.

    You have done an amazing job there to get those muffins to rise as beautifully as they have, ‘m very jealous. muffins have always been hard work for me, not sure why? I fancy whipping up some of those today.

    I’ve lucked into some fresh and local blueberries… four pounds of them! While I froze a bunch, I’m still looking for recipes as there are only so many blueberry pancakes I can eat! The muffins sound like a great idea. I’m not celiac but I try to minimize the amount of gluten I consume, at least in my own kitchen. Thanks for sharing this with Fiesta Friday!

    Absolutely love the sound of these and a not surprised that your friend gave them the thumbs up! Really like the fluffy texture too! Thank you for sharing with #BakingCrumbs 🙂 x
    Ps. Commented previously few days back but for some reason it didn’t want to register it. Hopefully this one works! 🙂
