I grew up eating these muffins regularly from my Gram & Mom’s kitchens. When I was diagnosed celiac I HAD to figure out how to make them gluten free style! They are just like Gram & Mom use to make … I do hope you enjoy! There are important tips and techniques in my muffin e-cookbook or the blueberry muffin class, that truly make the difference of having great lift and better texture. But for those of you who already know the tips then here is the recipe so you can just start baking!
Gram’s Blueberry Muffins – gluten-free style!
- 1 3/4 cup 1:1 GF Flour I make my own. I would also suggest KInnicknick or the recipe in America's Test Kitchen.
- 1/4 tsp Xantham Gum
- 1 tbsp Baking Powder
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- 1/2 cup Sugar
- 1/4 cup Melted Margarine (or Butter if you prefer) Block Parkay Margarine is what I use as it is dairy free.
- 1 Egg
- 3/4 cup Milk Use non-flavoured milk substitue if needed
- 1 tsp Vanila
- 1 cup Blueberries fresh or frozen will work!
- 2 tbsp Gluten Free Oats
- 1 tbsp Brown Sugar
- 1 tsp Cinnamon
- In a large bowl measure and mix the dry ingredients. Use a whisk to mix. If you are not using my flour, look in the notes below for my suggestions on flours. If you are using a different flour than mine, it can really change the consistency of the muffin. Make sure you notice if the other flour has xanthan gum or guar gum. If it does, don't add the xanthan gum in this recipe. Also, remember to measure all ingredients exactly, as that is very important in gluten free baking.If you would like to learn tips on how to make great gluten free muffins with great texture and taste check out my e-cookbook or you can take my Mini GF Baking Course (it includes the 1:1 flour recipe I use).
- In a small bowl measure and mix the the melted margarine (cooled), egg, vanilla and milk.
- Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and stir with a spoon. Refer back to the Tips and Techniques page in e-cookbook for instructions on how to mix and what to do with batter, this is important!
- Stir your topping ingredients together in a small bowl and then sprinkle evenly on top of your prepared muffins.
- Bake in a 400 degree F oven for 20 minutes. Let the muffins cool in the pan for 10 minutes before you remove them to a cooling rack to cool completely. These muffins can be eaten warm and are not gummy.
- I have tried this recipe for raspberry, peach, and apples … and it tastes great as well! Have fun experimenting with your favourite fruit.Enjoy!
