Blueberry Muffins

A classic, gluten free blueberry muffins are a perfect tea time treat or as breakfast on the go. Muffins are usually pretty heavy on the refined sugar but Gluten Free Blueberry Muffins recipe uses coconut palm sugar, a sugar substitute made from the sap of the coconut tree. We also use half a teaspoon of Xanthan gum which improves crumb structure where gluten is absent in baking, it’s completely optional but makes for a better bake when using gluten free flour.

Ingredients


Method

    1. Pre-heat your oven to 180 and line a muffin tin with cases.
    2. Cream together the sugar and butter until pale and fluffy.
    3. Beat your eggs together for a few seconds in a separate bowl and add slowly to your butter and sugar. Mix until incorporated.
    4. Stir in your flour, baking powder and xanthan gum (if using) and mix until smooth.
    5. Add half your blueberries to the mix and divide evenly between muffin cases – filling to about two thirds full.
    6. Lastly stud the tops of your muffins with the remaining blueberries and pop into the oven for about 20-25 minutes.
    7. Leave to cool in the tin for 5 minutes before removing. These are delicious warm!

Makes 8 large gluten free muffins.

K&H Tip
