Quick Gluten Free Blueberry Muffins 1I love both fresh blueberries and muffins. Often times I will have a muffin and scrambled eggs for breakfast or I will just have a muffin as a mid-day snack. This particular recipe has been in my recipe box for years and is a great gluten free standard muffin recipe. You can simply leave out the blueberries for just a plain muffin or you can substitute the blueberries with fresh Bing cherries, fresh chopped apricots, dried pineapple chunks, etc… just use your imagination!

In addition, feel free to add additional ingredients like Bing cherries, fresh chopped apricots, dried pineapple chunks, and more.

If you allergic to corn, are on a  gluten free diet or if you are on a low sodium diet, you may be interested in a great product that I have personally used for years.

Hain Pure Foods Featherweight Baking Powder is sodium free, gluten free, corn free and aluminum free, and certified Kosher. The ingredients are simply Monocalcium Phosphate, Potato Starch, and Potassium Bicarbonate with no artificial additives or preservatives. It works perfectly and you will not taste a ‘tinny’ taste from using baking powder with aluminum in it.

Gently fold in blueberries and pecans

The mixture will be super dense and super thick and therefore you can be generous filling your muffin tin. 

Bake at 350 degrees for 25 – 30 minutes, or until golden brown on top and a toothpick comes out ‘clean’ when inserted into the center of the muffins.

Allow the muffins to cool for 15 minutes, run a table knife around the edges to loosen the muffins from the muffin tin, then gently remove from pan and place on a cooling rack or cutting board. I placed my muffins on a large wooden cutting board with a sheet of waxed paper and allowed them to cool completely before storing them in an airtight container. The muffins freeze well so when you need a quick breakfast, just grab one out of the freezer and heat.

As you know, the presentation of food can be just as important as its taste! Therefore, owning a great set of ceramic dessert plates is a good idea.

I recently purchased a cute set and fell in love with them the moment I saw them.

    These muffins look amazing! I have been doing a lot of muffin recipes on my blog recently and will have to try these, as I have not gone down the gluten free path before! Thanks for sharing :)

      Hi Marissa, My husband does not need to be on a gluten free diet, however, because I am gluten free he is usually eating the same foods as I am whenever we are home. Except for the texture, (gluten free recipes tends to be more dense and sometimes a little more crumbly than when using regular flour), he says that he can't tell any difference between the gluten free and regular baked products. Whenever I make a batch of muffins, neither one of us can wait until they are cool enough to remove from the pan. He loves them as much as I do. Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy trying these yummy blueberry muffins!
