I have a great gluten free blueberry muffin recipe. Maybe you’ve tried it?
Moist and full of fruit flavor and stays fresh for days — perfect for traveling and a staple for our family every time we’ll be away for several days.
But it’s basically like banana bread in a gluten free muffin motif with blueberries.
But maybe you’re looking for something that’s a little lighter and more like a traditional blueberry muffin with a nice crown on top. And maybe you don’t like bananas (I won’t take it personally, don’t worry).
Well, I’ve got you covered. This is another favorite gluten free blueberry muffin recipe that will knock your socks off and it’s so darned easy.
You surely have everything you need in your kitchen already, assuming of course, you have blueberries and my gfJules® Gltuen Free All Purpose Flour OR my award-winning gfJules® Gluten Free Muffin Mix — critical ingredients!
In fact, if you already have my gfJules® Gluten Free Muffin Mix, this is yet another fun way for you to use it! If you like a sweeter muffin, add another 1/4 cup of sugar to the recipe, otherwise stick with the low sugar recipe as it’s written. Either way, enjoy an awesome gluten free blueberry muffin — you deserve it!
You can also use this handy mix to make Gluten Free Cranberry Walnut Muffins, Gluten Free Lemon Berry Muffins, Gluten Free Pumpkin Muffins, Gluten Free Zucchini Bread, Easy Gluten Free Banana Bread, Gluten Free Coffee Cake Muffins, or Gluten Free Double Chocolate Muffins! How’s that for versatile?!
And to make these muffins heart-shaped (even if you don’t have a special pan) use this quick kitchen DIY with marbles!
Gluten Free Blueberry Muffin Recipe
These might possibly qualify as the most perfect muffin. I mean, who doesn't love perfectly soft, perfectly light and moist, fluffy gluten free blueberry muffin?
- 1 gfJules® Muffin Mix mix
OR FROM SCRATCH
- 1/4 cup white OR brown sugar OR coconut palm sugar OR other alternative baking sugar (note: for sweeter muffins, add up to 1/4 cup additional sugar)
- 1 1/2 cups (202 grams) gfJules® Gluten Free All Purpose Flour
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon (optional)
- 6 Tbs. butter or non-dairy substitute (e.g. Earth Balance® Buttery Sticks)
- 1/4 cup maple syrup OR honey OR agave or coconut nectar OR date syrup
- 2 eggs (OR egg sub like 2 Tbs. flaxseed meal steeped in 6 Tbs. warm water)
- ½ cup milk of choice
- ½ cup+ blueberries, chocolate chips, etc. (optional)
Preheat oven to 350° F (static) or 325° F (convection).
Cream the butter and sugar (if baking from scratch) OR or around 1/2 of gfJules® Muffin Mix until the mixture is lighter and fluffy.
Add syrup ingredient and eggs and beat well. Gradually stir in the remaining dry ingredients listed or the rest of the Muffin Mix, adding the milk while stirring.
Lastly, gently fold in blueberries or any other mix-ins.
Spoon batter into oiled or lined muffin tins, filling 3/4 full.
Bake for 25-30 minutes or until lightly browned and a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Bake time will depend on size of muffins; if using convection setting, start checking for doneness at 20 minutes.
Cool on a wire rack and store in zip-top or tupperware-style containers. Do not refrigerate; muffins do freeze well.
Makes 8-12 muffins, depending on size.
Reader Barb A. recommends adding 1/4 cup applesauce if traveling or wanting extra moist muffins! Muffins stay fresh for several days if stored properly at room temperature.

Made these once and everyone loved them. I’m making ahead for a camping trip , wondering how they freeze?
So glad these were a hit, Darlene! I’ve frozen them before and they hold up well. Enjoy! (and have fun camping!)
Looking for the previous recipe using yogurt with the muffin mix. I find using honey too sweet.
Sure thing, Lori! All the gluten free muffin mix recipes are still posted or linked from the gluten free muffin mix product page linked here. (Go to the Ingredients Tab and the Description Tab for more recipe links) You can also hop to the recipe I think you’re looking for from the here — it’s called Gluten Free Blueberry Banana Muffins (it’s made using yogurt or sour cream). Hopefully that’s the one you’re looking for!
I made this recipe “from scratch” yesterday with a couple of modifications. Since I live at 6700′ altitude I always need to add liquid otherwise muffins come out dry and crumbly. I added just shy of 1/4 cup of blueberry yogurt- they came out so moist! I also drizzled a bit of lemon glaze on them. Yummy!
That sounds divine, Lynn! Thanks so very much for taking the time to share your high altitude modification — I’m sure others will be so happy to have that tip!
I just made the blueberry muffins, using the muffin mix. I feel like the muffins came out like a corn bread consistency. What am I doing wrong
Hi Susanna, did you use eggs or an egg substitute? Did you use honey or add sugar? Did the muffins look like the ones in the pictures with this recipe?
I really want to make lemon blueberry muffins and have looked at your other lemon cake recipes and they look similar to your muffin recipe but with a lot more sugar, more butter and no lemon…what alterations could I do to this recipe to make them Lemon Blueberry Muffins? Since I have some very ripe blueberries that I don’t want to go to waste I am going to make a big batch tonight and try just using a 1/2 Cup of butter and a couple of Tablespoons of Lemon Juice and zest and hope it turns out. I will post an update on how it goes but still curious on what you would recommend for a moist, light and fluffy blueberry, lemon muffin using your flour. Thanks!! (Old school GF fan of yours! 💜)
