I am super excited to share this Gluten-Free Blender Muffin recipe with you today. Not only is this the easiest healthy muffin recipe, the muffin has a perfect moist crumb, high top, and tastes just as good the next day. The best part, you can bake as many or as few in the morning with individual flavours without making a new batter.

Why is this a healthy gluten-free blender muffin recipe?

The key ingredients in this gluten-free blender muffin are healthy flours such as almond and millet flour, ground flaxseed, olive oil, lemon juice, and eggs, and is lightly sweetened with honey. You can add more honey if you wish, but I found that when you add berries the muffins are sweet enough.

highlights

Ground flaxseed – high in fiber and omega-3 fatty acids and helps with digestion

Millet flour – soluble and insoluble fiber which supports good bacteria in your digestive system and includes a rich source of magnesium which reduces blood pressure

Almond flour – low in carbs, high in fiber and protein, includes a powerful antioxidant vitamin E

Extra virgin olive oil – antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Including healthy fats such as olive oil balances blood sugar and may help prevent diabetes

Eggs – vitamins D, B12 and iodine. Eggs are a complete source of protein because they contain all nine essential amino acids

Honey – calcium, iron, potassium, sodium, magnesium, zinc, copper, phosphorus, fluoride, and selenium

In addition, you can add healthy berries, coconut flakes, grated carrots, grated zucchini, chopped dates or nuts for extra healthiness

Everything to know about making blender muffins

 

Is blender muffin batter thick or runny?

The batter should be like a thin cake batter before placing it in the fridge. The flours will absorb some of the moisture once the batter rests but will remain relatively thin. This will keep the muffins extra light when baked.

Why should you chill blender muffin batter?

By chilling the batter, the gluten-free muffins will be moist, have a tender crumb and be taller

How to get dome on a blender muffin?

Start baking the muffins at high oven temperature 425 F, then reduce to 350 F and finish baking. The high temperature gives the muffin a rapid rise during the first minutes of baking

What does olive oil do in blender batter?

Besides making the muffins healthier, the oil keeps the muffins moist because it remains liquid at room temperature. Butter, on the other hand, solidifies and makes the muffins heavier and less moist

What does powdered milk do in gluten-free blender muffins?

Powdered milk helps the muffins rise more and make them crumb extra tender. It will also make the muffin richer tasting.

Can you make the batter savoury?

If you prefer savoury muffins, no problem. Follow the same recipe, except use only two tablespoons of honey and add a 1/4 cup of water to make savoury blender batter. Or, you can try the Gluten-Free Savoury Breakfast Muffin or the Gluten-Free Zucchini Bacon And Cheese Muffin recipe.

Savoury add-ins

Instead of adding berries and sweet things, think of chopped crispy bacon, grated zucchini, cheese, chopped ham, and sliced green onions. Whatever you desire! 

Best way to store gluten-free muffins

First, make sure the muffins are completely cooled. Then, line an airtight storage container with a paper towel. Next, place the muffins on top of the paper towel and top with another layer of paper towel—store at room temperature.

Why are gluten-free blender muffins so good!

First, all you need is a blender, so easy cleanup. You can make the batter three days in advance. Bake as few or as many gluten-free muffins fresh every morning. And, each muffin can be different, making everyone happy!

      I can’t have honey, but I can have golden syrup and maple syrup. Would either of those work? It’s such a beautiful recipe, and I so want to make it. I’m trying to resolve some digestive issues and honey makes me very sick. Thank you!

      • Kristina June 4, 2022

        yes you can use either Alene, I would recommend using pure maple syrup, it is a much healthier option
