If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve probably seen in my stories that I’ve been doing a lot of muffin recipe testing. I’ve been on a quest to create the perfect recipe for gluten free blueberry muffins and gluten free lemon poppy seed muffins.

Blueberry muffins are kind of my thing. I love all kinds – mini blueberry muffins, blueberry crumb muffins, blueberry almond muffins, and even grain free blueberry muffins. That’s a lot of blueberry muffin options I have in my arsenal but none of them are “the one” I’ve been trying to replicate from my childhood.

We didn’t have muffins very often when I was growing up but occasionally, my dad would make blueberry muffins to have with scrambled eggs. They’re probably my favorite muffins ever.

They were slightly crisp on the outside and had this amazing cinnamon flavor and topping. The recipe my dad thought he used to use called for dipping the baked muffins in melted butter and then in sugar.

Since the extra butter and cinnamon step isn’t something that he would have done, we both think he maybe sprinkled cinnamon sugar on top before baking. His recipe also called for 1/2 teaspoon of “spice” so for this gluten free blueberry muffin recipe, I added 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon into the batter. My gluten free mini blueberry muffins also have some ground cinnamon in the batter – it’s such a great flavor with blueberries 💙

Cinnamon sugar or turbinado sugar would be a nice addition to the top of the muffins if you prefer that little bit of crunch or extra burst of cinnamon flavor. Just add it before popping them into the oven!

As far as recreating my favorite childhood muffin recipe, I think I came pretty close. It doesn’t quite have that “crunch” factor that I remember from the crispy exterior but I don’t want to bake my muffins too long so I don’t dry them out.

Other than that, we can go ahead and say #nailedit and then dive right into these gluten free muffins. They’re great warm right out of the oven or at room temp. You can even freeze them for later if you want to make a double batch. Enjoy!

I'm looking for a way to use up some dried blueberries. Would they work for these muffins?

They would! You could always plump them up with some hot water if you want them to have a bit more moisture.

Picked blueberries this evening and had to make blueberry muffins. Found your recipe and had all the ingredients in my kitchen. They turned out delicious. Ate the first one hot! Yum!!!

Love making these. I use frozen wild blueberries and they are so good. Just wondering if applesauce can be substituted for the oil in the recipe?

These are delicious muffins! I've made them twice, both times with frozen blueberries. The first time, I used half-and-half instead of milk. The second time, I used oat milk plus forgot to put in the brown sugar. They were cakier than the first time, but still delicious and didn't seem under-sweetened.

My muffins came out super moist and wet and I don’t think I undercooked them. Any tips?
