Let’s talk muffins! I’m a major muffin lover, and since I started making gluten-free recipes, I have made a lot of delicious gluten-free muffins! They make for such a good, easy breakfast that’s easy to keep on hand in the freezer for when you need a quick breakfast or something to take with you to snack on throughout the day. I’m also a major lover of recipes with blueberries, so this ticks off so many of my boxes.

Some of my other favorite muffins, like these gluten-free banana nut muffins and these incredible gluten-free lemon poppyseed muffins, are stacked in my freezer with these on the regular. We just can’t get enough of them!! I’ve also got quite a few of my favorite muffin recipes in my cookbook!

These gluten-free banana blueberries are bound to be a hit, because they are all the things: delicious, healthy, easy to make, and easy to store! If you’re like me, there are probably a lot of weeks where you hopefully buy a bunch of bananas to eat as a snack, and then they end up a little too spotty for your liking. Well – those bananas are the perfect thing to turn into these GF banana blueberry muffins! The ripeness contributes a ton of sweetness to these easy GF muffins.

Tips for the best gluten-free banana blueberry muffins

  • Use ripe bananas. Since they act as our sugar in this recipe, it’s important to use ripe bananas that have concentrated sugars!
  • Don’t replace the coconut flour. These are coconut flour muffins, and coconut flour is a very uniquely absorbent ingredient. Other flours require about 3x as much to get the same absorbency. I wouldn’t recommend substituting another flour.
  • Use fresh blueberries! Frozen can also work, but if using frozen, be sure to drain and thaw completely before using so the batter doesn’t get too moist.
  • Let your eggs come to room temperature to ensure everything incorporates smoothly.
  • Use a metal muffin pan instead of silicone, which leaves the muffins a little too wet and doesn’t allow them to bake through as well.
  • Use a cookie scoop to ensure your muffins are evenly sized, which will help them bake evenly! I like this large cookie scoop for muffins.

Do muffins have a lot of sugar?

They absolutely do not! In fact, these blueberry muffins have absolutely no added sugar aside from the banana. They’re Paleo-friendly, grain-free, gluten-free, and refined sugar-free. I loved snacking on these muffins pre-and post-workout. They also make a quick grab-and-go breakfast when you’re in a rush. Mmmm…so good. Now I’m craving muffins.

Do muffins freeze well?

Yes, they do! These blueberry banana muffins freeze perfectly in an airtight container for up to six months. You can just reheat one in the microwave for a super quick and delicious breakfast treat or let them thaw out in the fridge overnight.
