Healthy Blueberry Muffins. Yes, just yes.

I grew up on blueberry muffins. It’s the truth: I would make a batch of blueberry muffins almost every weekend, it was the one of few things I could make. I would proceed to devour them all in one day with a hefty slab of butter every time.

With a tried-and-true recipe of ours I shared how to make a healthy blueberry muffin but it contained almond flour. After receiving many comments about subbing out the almond flour for other types, I’ve done the work for you!

We’ve got fluffy blueberry muffins with all those fabulous ingredients from the first, but sans the almond flour.

Sans Almond Flour for a few reasons:

  • I found many people don’t have it on hand because either it’s not available around them or it’s just too expensive. I hear you.
  • Allergies! People with tree nut allergies deserve moist and gluten free blueberry muffins too!

For a while there, almond flour and I were great friends. However, the day I found my favorite gluten-free 1-1 baking flour by Bob’s Red Mill is when almond flour started to take a back seat.

This amazing gluten-free flour blend is what made it possible to bake and have my childhood favorites with a taste just like they did when I was growing up. Bonus: Just with about a quarter of the sugar content.

For reals, my childhood favorites called for SO much sugar when made the traditional way.

For those who live somewhere warm that have fresh, juicy and sweet blueberries year round, disregard.

For all the other people who don’t tolerate expensive, flavorless and tart blueberries during the winter. Frozen blueberries are our solution. Watch here to help walk you through to not coloring your entire muffins a gray color.

    Hi,

    I’m in that very small percentage that are truly gluten intolerant. I just wanted to let you know that because vanilla extract uses vodka that there is a cross contamination from the protein in wheat distilled vodka that makes vanilla extract not gluten free for those of us that are truly gluten intolerant. The only way to have gluten free vanilla extract is to make it at home.

      Hi Kathleen! I thank you for your concern and appreciate you bringing this up. Of course if you find you react to vanilla extract then you of course avoid it or make it at home if that seems to solve it. I am celiac myself and also have to truly avoid gluten as well. You are definitely not in the small percentage here. 🙂 I personally make vanilla extract at home (it is so much more cost efficient) but there seems to a little misinformation that I would like to share what I’ve learned along the way. There are plenty of large brands out there like McCormick whose vanilla extract is indeed confirmed gluten-free. Any off-brand obviously do your own digging but as normal anything that goes into our bodies needs to have a rigorous inspection to make sure. As well, that’s life. 🙂
