Blueberry Streusel Top Muffins

Starting with a great recipe, then adjusting it to be gluten-free and adding a touch of almond to make it sing.

I love how easy these are and they're the softest, blueberries muffins I've ever made. Use Cup4Cup for best results, but RedMill 1 for 1 also works well for muffins and quick breads like this. Schar now also makes a 1 to 1 flour mix and I'm looking forward to trying it.

Let's bake!

Prep: 10 min. Cook Time :20 Serves: 12 muffins


2 cups gluten-free flour blend

1 1/2 tsp baking powder 1/2 tsp salt

1/2 cup butter 1 cup sugar (or do 1/2 white, 1/2 brown sugar) 2 large eggs

1 tbsp vanilla 1 tsp almond extract 1/2 cup milk (dairy or non of your choice- I used oat)

2 cups blueberries (fresh or frozen - I used Trader Joe's frozen wild)


1/4 cup sugar 2 tbsp gluten-free flour

2 tbsp butter 1 tsp cinnamon 1/2 tsp almond extract optional: 2 tbsp sliced or chopped toasted almonds

  • Preheat oven to 350. Line a muffin pan with liners. (Tip: spacing them out every other one helps the muffins rise)

  • beat butter and sugar in a large bowl until fluffy

  • add in eggs one at a time and beat

  • add in salt, vanilla, almond extract and baking powder and beat

  • add flour and mix until just combined

  • fold in blueberries

  • let the better rest for 30 minutes to incorporate (fridge or not Is fine)

  • mix together all topping ingredients until it feels like wet sand and adjust flavor as you like - set aside

  • with an ice cream scoop or a spoon fill muffin tins evenly. (Tip: if using accordion liners, fill until just under the lip, If using folded paper liners like in the pictures, you can fill a bit over the top of the tray, but not too much)

  • top each muffin with streusel topping and sprinkle with almonds if you're using them

  • bake on middle rack for 20-25 minutes until a toothpick comes out just clean

Serve as they are or dust them with powdered sugar or more almonds for a pretty brunch presentation. Enjoy!
