Lemon Blueberry Muffins


Lemon Blueberry Muffins (Gluten-Free)

When my girls were young and we were homeschooling I would often bake a batch of blueberry muffins for a mid-morning treat. I would usually serve them with a little cup of milk in special little teacups. Often times, they came from a pre-packaged muffin mix that was quick and easy to make.

Now that we eat gluten, dairy, and sugar free I needed an easy go-to recipe that would be quick, yummy, and have a wonderful texture. This recipe for gluten-free lemon blueberry muffins fits all those. I try to keep blueberries stocked in my freezer so that we can whip these up anytime.

For Trim Healthy Mamas, these muffins are an S.

    These look great, Robin–can’t wait to try them:) Thanks for your willingness to share your hard work with others~Blessings!

      Thank you, Rhonda! It’s my pleasure. I hope you enjoy them.

    Just wondering if this could be made in a loaf pan instead.
    Also, I tend to use Gentle Sweet more than any other sweetener. Any idea how much would equal your truvia?

    • MamaShire (Author)

      I haven’t tried it in a loaf pan, but I imagine it would work. It would take a little longer to bake, probably 30-45 minutes ??. Just keep an eye on it and check for doneness. I would love to know if you do and how it turned out. And I haven’t used the Gentle Sweet yet, but this conversion chart should help give you direction on how much to use. http://www.trimhealthymama.com/main-home/sweetener-conversion-chart/

  3. I just made these this morning, then we left for our local ag fair. When I came home I ate one with my lunch and it is amazing! These are so very good.

    I have been doing THM for a year now and have lost 50 pounds. I don’t always love the baked goods, but these will be made frequently!

    • MamaShire (Author)

      Oh, I am so glad that you like them! And congratulations on losing 50 pounds!! That is so exciting!

    Wowahhh! My wife made a batch of these the other night. Dearest Lord, these are the best blueberry muffins I have ever tasted……and hate blueberry muffins. Just finished one of the last ones this morning toasted with pure butter frosting. Full of flavor. Way-da-go, Mama!

    • MamaShire (Author)

      Yay! So glad that you liked them!! Your wife must love you to pieces! 🙂

    Oops, forgot “I” in the hate part…….:)

  6. Robin, I just baked a batch! I didn’t have xylitol or Truvia so I subbed half the amount of Super Sweet Blend (so that would be 1/4 cup). The sweetness of the muffins seemed just about right to me. I bet these would be yummy with raspberries, too! Thanks for a great recipe!

    • MamaShire (Author)

      Laura, that’s a great idea with the raspberries. I have a friend who tried it with orange extract instead of lemon and loved them. Good to know about the sweetener amount. So glad that you liked them and you are quite welcome!

    These are fantastic! I made them for my mom and I, and we absolutely love them. <3 They are not dry, which is what usually happens when I use coconut flour, but these are soft and moist! I defiantly will be making these again. Thank you so much for posting! 🙂

    • MamaShire (Author)

      Anna, I’m so glad that you and your mom liked them!

    Is it supposed to be a dry crumble mix when you start?

    • MamaShire (Author)

      Hi Jaime, are you asking if the flours mixed together are a dry crumble or the batter before baking?

  9. Renee Taylor

    Hi, I’m wondering if I could use the THM baking blend instead of the 2 flours? I’m not sure how much I’d use. Thanks

    • MamaShire (Author)

      Hi Renee, I haven’t made it with the THM baking blend, so I can’t give you a definite answer. If I was to try it I would use a little less of the THM blend and then just look at the batter before baking. The THM blend is going to be a much thirstier flour due to oat fiber, so it may need more liquid ingredients or you may need to add a little more blend. It really is trial and error, but don’t be afraid. If you can get the batter nice you will probably have happy muffins. 🙂

    These are delicious! I a baked-goods-loving-woman-with-a-sweet-tooth, and I just started on THM, and this little gem has given me hope for my THM future! Haha… I know THM isn’t about calorie counting, BUT, I am still curious about how many calories would be in one of these? I am only asking because I ate three, and now I’m wondering if I have abused my “s” breakfast for the day haha 😉

    • MamaShire (Author)

      Hi Katie! I use MyFitnessPal.com to find out the nutrition facts on my recipes. These muffins have 238 calories each. Yes, you’re right, THM isn’t about counting calories! Portion size is something that we all have to work out for ourselves. It can be overdone, for sure, but some people need more than others. Just learn to listen to your body. If you find you aren’t losing weight then portion size could be a factor in that. Hope you have a wonderful THM journey and here’s to a healthier lifestyle!

  11. These were great! I bought some THM SuperSweet and wanted to find a normal recipe to use it in! They turned out moist and yummy! The lemon extract helped mask any possible egg taste that I thought may be there, but there wasn’t! Great job!

      Yay! So glad that you liked them!
