From savoury muffins to sweet, we’ve got you covered with a delicious selection of 25 gluten free muffin recipes to choose from! You will find below a selection of my favourite gluten free muffins that are perfect to make ahead for easy breakfasts, snacks or morning tea. Get your kids busy with baking!

As the world is currently experiencing unprecedented times, over here in New Zealand we are catching up with the rest of the world, our day to day life has changed in what feels like overnight. I think we are all coming to terms with how fast everything has moved in our little country.

We are now in nationwide lock down and it has all happened very quickly! I am grateful that New Zealand has been so fast to take action, but I know I am not alone in saying we are all trying to adjust as fast as we can with isolating ourselves and our families.

As we are all looking for ways to entertain our kids (and ourselves), what better way then to get on to some baking…….Science and home economics all in one! Put on some music and make it fun!

Some of the best flours for making gluten free muffins are…….

  • Coconut flour
  • Buckwheat flour – (buckwheat flour is gluten and wheat free despite its name)
  • Cassava flour
  • Tapioca starch
  • Rice flour
  • Almond flour
  • Almond meal
  • Tigernut flour
  • Your standard pre-made gluten free flour mix.
  • If you can tolerate oats or gluten free oats then you can use oat flour or grind up some oats to make some.

You will often need more than one flour when making gluten free muffins. With many of these flours a little usually goes a long way. I am aware at this strange time some supermarkets have run out of flour. I hope this will ease once the panic buying does!

The good news is that for once the gluten free and “free from” sections in the supermarket seem to have more selection than the standard baking isle. I was pleased to see that my local wholefoods store is staying open during our lockdown. I hope wherever you are you have some options available for you too…..

I hope you get a chance to get your aprons out and try baking some of these gluten free muffins. The aroma of home baking can do wonders for the senses and hopefully may bring some joy into your household.

I am grateful to the talented real food bloggers that have contributed to this post with their recipes. Below you will find a selection of delicious gluten free muffins, some are also dairy free, Paleo and Keto friendly. I hope you find a few recipes that catch your eye to try!

25 Gluten Free Muffin Recipes

The best thing about making homemade muffins (apart from the aroma when baking!) is that you can be sure about what is going into them. It goes without saying that this is particularly important for those with food allergies or intolerances. 

Many store bought muffins can contain a lot of refined white sugar and sometimes unwanted additives. By making your own at home you can really bump up the nutrition by adding nourishing ingredients and tweak the flavours as desired.

I hope you enjoy the selection below.
