Grain-Free Blueberry Muffins

Blueberry muffins are my ultimate weakness. Give me a bowl of curry or a grilled salmon salad and I’m usually a happy girl, but blueberry muffins turn me into a carb lover in a matter of seconds. I don’t stand a chance. And I mean can you blame me? They’re the OG classic muffin that we all grew up with (or I grew up at least trying to make gluten-free versions of.)

I’ve tried so many gluten-free muffin recipes over the years but have yet to find one that I really liked. They’re usually either too eggy, too greasy, or too dense. But these muffins? They’re everything I’ve been waiting for, while still staying 100% gluten and grain free. Honestly? It’s the cassava flour that makes all the difference. So many gluten free muffins are made with all almond meal/butter or all coconut flour which are great ideas, but tend to be heavy on the gut, and don’t give a great texture. I love how light and fluffy cassava flour makes paleo baked goods!

I first came across this magic muffin formula while I was creating my beloved apple crumb muffins and realized a few tweaks would make the perfect paleo blueberry muffin; and they didn’t disappoint! I’ve made these maybe 6 times just to be sure. So I’m just going to forewarn you… these grain-free blueberry muffins are highly addicting. And because they are so easy to make, I won’t be surprised if you make them 6 times as I did!

Ingredients you’ll need for Gluten-Free Blueberry Muffins:

  • Cassava flour: this is my favorite gluten free flour! You can find it in most stores now.
  • Coconut Flour: I find this helps my cassava flour go further and gives a tighter crumb to baked goods.
  • Coconut sugar: a lower inflammatory sugar option that I use in most of my baking.
  • Cream of tartar: this helps make up for the lack of baking powder.
  • Baking soda: for that fluff factor.
  • Avocado oil:  I’ve used coconut oil and they still come out well, but I prefer this texture.
  • Honey: adds moisture and a little more sweetness to the muffins
  •  Egg: for obvious baking reasons — remember to use room temp eggs!
  • Full fat coconut milk, or another non-dairy milk such as almond milk
  • Blueberries: wouldn’t be blueberry muffins without them!

Tips for the fluffiest Cassava Flour Blueberry Muffins:

  • Make sure your eggs are room temperature!
  • Don’t pack your cassava flour too much when you’re measuring or the batter may be too dry.
  • Don’t overmix! Lightly fold your blueberries in at the end before scooping them into your muffin tins.
  • Use parchment baking cups for best results.
