These gluten free cheddar herb muffins are so light and fluffy, they are incredible.

People will NEVER know these cheese muffins are gluten free from just tasting them. And, each bite is full of cheesy herb goodness. (*And if you LOVE light and fluffy muffins you MUST try these Gluten Free Strawberry Muffins and these Gluten Free Blueberry Coconut Muffins.)

I have several gluten free muffin recipes up on the blog, but this is my only savory muffin recipe.

It might be spring, but winter temps are hanging on here, so soup and muffins are needed!

    Thanks again, dear!

  18. I was looking at a savory herb and cheese muffing and It called for a gluten free flour blend. Now I’m trying to find what that is. Is that something I can just buy or is there a recipe to make it

    • Hi Kathy, I am so sorry. I switched recipe plugins and this one needs the brand link to be manually entered. I am still updating, but please know I used Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 Gluten Free Flour Blend to make these muffins.

  19. Virginia Dodds says:

    Cannot wait to try these savory gluten-free muffins for my granddaughter!! If you would like a suggestion from an old 4-H member who had to learn how to do food demonstrations, read on. If not, just delete:
    1. Keep ingredients to the side so the viewer’s line of vision is not obstructed.
    2. Use a glass bowl for the Kitchen Aid mixer to avoid a “tinny” sound.
    3. Pre-measutre all ingredients (as you already had done so for some) and put in small glass bowls or containers. Eggs, especially, should already be cracked into a small bowl to avoid a possible snafu with egg shells when cracked directly into the mixing bowl.
    4. Keep a neutral background. Since you have a beautiful patterned countertop, a large wooden cutting board or other neutral covering for your counter would make the demonstration easier to view.
    5. Keep up the good work!
    I only offer these tips as you had stated you were going to try to do better.

    • You are absolutely wonderful Virginia :-). I love your suggestions. I have been struggling with video, and finally decided to stay out of them myself and just focus on the food parts of the video. Thank you so much for taking the time to offer advice, I am very grateful.
