Gluten-Free Blueberry & Brown Sugar Muffins

Gluten Free Blueberry Muffin 006







I’ve been experimenting lately with gluten-free baking.  I’m not celiac, however, I’ve learned that gluten is an enemy if we suffer from a thyroid disorder –which I do.

So I’m looking at ways to minimize gluten while still enjoying my favorites — like blueberry muffins warm out of the oven.

The problem is that many gluten free recipes have ingredients with which I’m not familiar and I’m not quite sure I even want to try!

That ended when I discovered the ease of Gluten Free Bisquick (or any similar gluten free baking mix).

The baking mix makes gluten free baking much less complicated… this recipe is delish –didn’t even miss my regular blueberry muffins.   Thanks Bisquick!

My blueberry recipe is adapted from Bisquick’s Gluten Free Strawberry Muffin — but I use blueberries instead of strawberries.

They’re very easy to make and I think if you give this recipe a try, you’ll be pleasantly and gluten-free surprised!

The dough will be stiff, more like a cookie dough than a traditional muffin dough.

Spoon batter evenly into muffin cups.  Sprinkle tops with white sugar.

Bake for 20 minutes.

Let set about 10 minutes before removing from pan.

Then enjoy your delicious blueberry muffin — minus the gluten!

    Oh wow these look delicious! And the list of ingredients looks manageable.

    Hi Tisela, thanks for writing! I agree about the ingredient list. Sometimes gluten-free baking involves ingredients with which we are not so familiar, so the gluten free baking mixes make it a bit easier. I hope you enjoy these — the blueberries make the muffin moist and delish! Best, Debbie PS…they truly are best right out of the oven!
