There’s a lot to love about gluten-free muffin recipes. They’re a full sensory experience – the warm and homey aromas infusing your kitchen as they bake, the spring against your fingertips as you test for doneness, the burst of flavour as you bite into one, and the different textures that may surprise you such as chocolate chips, dried fruit, or crunchy nuts and seeds.
We adore gluten-free muffin recipes because they’re:
- Simple and easy (often requiring only one bowl or a blender)
- Fantastic for batch cooking, menu planning, and meal prep
- Easy to freeze well
- Very flexible when it comes to flavours and add-ins
- Portable for packing in lunchboxes or for road trips
- Straightforward for beginners as well as experienced bakers
- Adaptable for different dietary styles (vegan, dairy-free, Paleo, grain-free, sugar-free, etc.)
- Nice for breakfast or a snack (load ’em up with homemade nut or seed butter, ghee, or this hemp chocolate spread)
- Easily ‘dressed up’ for dessert by adding a whole food, healthy frosting
- Perfect with your favourite cup of tea, dairy-free elixirs, or hot chocolate
