Remember when we were nineteen years old and up-sizing our meals at Chick-fil-a? In all seriousness, growing up as an athlete I never truly believed it when people would say that there would come a day when I wouldn’t be able to eat like that, but alas, here we are!

While neither Michael or I are gluten-free, we have come to notice a significant difference when we limit our gluten intake. Now, whether that is due to making fresher and healthier choices than gluten or gluten itself I cannot say, but I know my body always reacts positively!

My sister does stick to a strict gluten-free diet so I’ve tried my fair share of gluten-free cupcakes and such along the way. Enough to know that not all gluten-free “baked goods” are on the same level of my kind of baked goods; hence a big reason why I don’t stick to a gluten-free diet. (You’ve seen my website, right?! Ha!) So when I started experimenting with a gluten-free muffin I knew it had to be SO good that no one would even suspect that it was gluten-free. Mission accomplished!!

Why Is It The Best?

After batch after batch, I landed on what I think to be the BEST gluten-free blueberry muffin that I had ever had and here’s why:

  1. The consistency is perfectly fluffy with the lightest layer of crunch on top!
  2. The fresh blueberries spread out into the batter while cooking and create the most incredible flavor and texture throughout!
  3. The combination of vanilla extract and cinnamon make it taste just like a blueberry cobbler! 
  4. They only take one type of flour! 
  5. You would never know that they were gluten-free!

What You Will Need

Unsalted butter – If all you have is salted butter simply do not use the salt listed below.
Eggs – These will be your binder!
Almond milk – If you prefer you can replace with skim, 1%, or 2% regular milk.
Vanilla extract – For that perfect flavor.
Gluten-free measure for measure (also called 1 to 1) flour – My favorite is King Arthur!
Sugar – In the recipe I have it listed as 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup. It is really dependent upon how sweet you like your muffins! I prefer 3/4 cup. 
Baking powder – For that pretty rise!
Cinnamon – Don’t skip, trust me!
Salt – Just a tad
Fresh blueberries – Using fresh berries in this recipe makes all the difference!
