Gluten Free Lemon Blueberry Muffins Recipe

Don’t waste your money on store-bought Gluten Free baked goods. Try this easy and delicious Gluten Free Lemon Blueberry Muffins Recipe. OMG! Amazing!

I wish you had smell-a-web because these Gluten Free Lemon Blueberry Muffins smell amazing! The citrusy zest aroma is filling my kitchen right now.

I am a mom of kids with food allergies, and will freely admit to buying store bought Gluten Free Baked goods just for convenience. I will also openly admit to paying way too much for those mediocre baked products, just to avoid the hassle of baking them. Hello, $6 for 6 Muffins. ~UGH~

Today I decided that I am done! Done buying crappy store-bought baked goods because they are easier. Done being passive and finally getting off my rear and making them myself. I quit being unorganized and start baking ahead and keeping them in the freezer like I should have been doing all along.

I started scrounging around the kitchen last night.  You see, it is that time of the month where I haven’t been to the store for my BIG shopping trip yet, and things are looking like an old deserted ghost town. Breakfast….hmmm….let’s see.

Milk (nope out of milk)

Cereal (one box, but not enough left for three kids)

Bananas (down to one)

Well, alright then. I did manage to have just enough stuff to make these Gluten Free Lemon Blueberry Muffins. I could only imagine them nice and warm with my cup of coffee in the morning. Who am I kidding?? I may have taken a “Taste Test” muffin right out of the oven last night. LOL

These are a little more work than muffins from a box mix, but the recipe made 14 good sized muffins. The way I look at it is if I had bought these at the grocery store, they would have cost me at least $14. Money well saved. These taste so much better than that store-bought stuff anyway.

I sat out 6 muffins for breakfast, and 6 went in a Freezer bag for another morning. SCORE! The other two are lost souls that may or may not have been sacrificed last night for taste testing purposes 😉

    I made these this morning and they were soo good! Thanks for the recipe! I did add some chopped pecans and oats to the topping. I used my own GF mix of rice flour, sweet sorghum flour and tapioca flour along with 1/2 tsp xanthan gum. The muffins were a nice texture and the taste was spot on. Thank you again for taking the time to share. I have to add that I decided to make your muffins based on how good they looked in pictures. I kid you not I googled gluten free blueberry muffins and clicked on images and scrolled down till I saw one that looked the best.

    Hi there – I just found these muffins on Pinterest. Like Katrina, I also chose them because of the picture. So many GF muffins look like blobs! I made them for my kids’ teachers, and for a church breakfast this morning. At the breakfast these went before my “normal” muffins – which I have received great compliments on in the past! I think this is my new blueberry muffin recipe!! I don’t have a gluten allergy or sensitivity, so I’m going to try using regular flour instead. I used Red Mill’s 1-to-1 GF flour and you just could not tell these were GF. Thank you 🙂

    I just made these. They were excellent. I had to bake mine about 33 minutes.
    I am going to try to make them egg free now and will report back if I get it right.

    Oh. My. Goodness. These were AMAZING! They literally turned out perfectly. We devoured these! Super easy to make. Thank you!

  7. I am hard to please when it comes to muffins and these were great. I used melted Nuttelex and almond milk so they’d be GF/DF and just did a dry ingredients mixed with wet ingredients method. Instead of the crumbled topping I just used lemon juice with undissolved sugar spooned on the hot muffins. They turned out yummy.
