Making gluten free lemon blueberry muffins

To make these lemon blueberry muffins gluten free, I used blanched almond flour and tapioca flour. This keeps them grain free and paleo friendly as well. Just make sure to use blanched almond flour, versus almond meal. Here’s why.

  • It’s finer and lighter and results in a fluffier texture.
  • It will give your muffins the yellow, lemony looking color. If you used almond meal the muffins would be more of a brown color.

Fresh or frozen blueberries for muffins

You can use either fresh or frozen blueberries. Freeze dried would be great, too. Just note that you will want to store the muffins in an airtight container in the fridge. Otherwise, they won’t last long on the counter and will get mushy from the juices in the blueberries.

How to make vegan muffins

This recipe can easily be adapted to be vegan friendly with one easy swap.

  • Use flax eggs instead of regular eggs.
  • Mix 3 tablespoons of ground flax seed with 7-1/2 tablespoons of warm water, and let it sit while you add the dry ingredients to your mixing bowl.
