If you’re gluten-free like me, then you know what a hassle it can be to find a decent muffin recipe.

…Or a decent baking recipe in general, really.

Even boxed recipes can be hit or miss, depending on the brand. In this situation, I usually turn to my fellow foodies in the blogosphere. Sure, you can go for the pre-made, sub-par frozen muffins that a few well-known gluten-free brands make, but you won’t find the real, wholesome home-cooking that you’re really looking for in a muffin.

Especially in gluten free blueberry muffins.

Well, my long muffin-searching journey is finally over. After years of muffin /fails, recipe after recipe, I’ve finally found something that makes even the non-gluten-free people in my life ask for seconds.

That’s right.

Look no further, my friends. This happens to be the first – and last – gluten free blueberry muffins recipe you will ever need.

You can make these with regular flour, too, by changing the 1 3/4 cup of gluten-free flour to 2 cups of regular flour, and reducing the baking powder and cream slightly. In fact, you can use regular milk in the non-gluten free version, but stick with cream or light cream for the gluten free version, the acidity is your muffin’s friend.

Unless, of course, you’d prefer a gluten-free corn muffin, which I would also be more than happy to help you with.

Gluten Free Blueberry Muffins

These gluten free blueberry muffins are moist, sweet and the perfect start to any morning. Feel free to add more or less blueberries, depending on your preference. You can also top with extra sugar and cinnamon for a sweeter muffin, or replace the blueberries with fresh cherries or dried cranberries. This cooking time is for small muffins. For larger muffins, you may need to cook for 35-40 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
