I love to make this simple gluten-free blueberry muffin recipe on the weekends. My family really enjoys blueberry muffins, so I often make a double batch and then freeze them. These are perfect for busy mornings as well. This recipe is gluten-free dairy-free and made just like other muffin recipes. Use fresh or frozen blueberries. Either way, these are so delicious no one will ever know they are gluten-free.

There are many gluten-free flour blends out there. I make my own Simple Gluten-Free Flour Blend because I am sensitive to many gluten-free flours. It works well for all my baking needs. Most gluten-free flour blends contain a mixture of rice flour (white or brown or both), another type of gluten-free flour (sorghum), a starch (potato, tapioca), and xanthan gum.
If you choose to buy your flour blend these brands are recommended year after year, Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free 1-to-1 baking flour, King Arthur Gluten-Free All-Purpose Flour, or Krusteaz Gluten-Free All-Purpose Flour (paid Amazon links). These flour blends are easily substituted into recipes that call for regular flour.
Leavening agents, such as baking soda and baking powder make baked goods rise. Baking soda is activated when combined with an acid such as lemon juice or buttermilk. Baking powder activates when combined with a liquid.
Muffins and cupcakes differ in the ratio of ingredients in the recipe. The ratio for a basic muffin recipe is 2 parts flour, 2 parts liquid, 1 part egg, and 1 part fat (butter, oil). Muffins also contain less sugar and can be made savory with eggs or vegetables. The batter for muffins is mixed for less time.
Cupcakes and cakes contain more sugar, and the batter is mixed longer. The eggs in cupcake/cake recipes are usually whipped, and cupcakes/cakes have frosting. The ratio for a cupcake recipe is 1 part flour, 1 part sugar, 1 part egg, 1 part fat.
I hope you and your family enjoy these gluten-free, dairy-free blueberry muffins. I also encourage you to try my Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Apple Cinnamon muffins. Both recipes are simple and sure to get everyone off to a great start.
My hope is you will come to enjoy cooking. Be sure to leave a comment and let me know when you make this recipe. I love to hear your ideas.
