My family loves muffins. I have a lot of both sweet and savory gluten free muffins recipes on the blog. They make a great grab-and-go breakfast, addition to brunch, or snack. Some muffins are healthier than others and I even have a tasty savory muffin recipe.
Why this DIY gluten free muffin mix is great:
Homemade gluten free muffins are an absolutely wonderful addition to breakfast. This muffin mix recipe is great because you can customize it to control the ingredients easily, making it great for those with multiple food allergies. You can also use any fruit or mix-in to make these muffins exactly how you like them!!
Some of my favorite mix-ins are blueberries, raspberries, apples, chocolate chips, pecans, walnuts, raisins, and more! I love this mix in my easy gluten free cranberry muffins recipe too!
- Gluten free flour blend - I have tested this recipe with two flour blends. King Arthur Measure for Measure and Bob's Red Mill 1 to 1 Gluten Free Blend.
- If your gluten free blend doesn't contain Xanthan Gum, you will need this too.
- Almond flour - I don't recommend almond meal because it is a more coarse grind.
- Baking powder - make sure to use a gluten free brand like Clabber Girl or Bob's Red Mill GF.
- Quart sized mason jars to store your muffin mix in for gift giving.
Recipe step by step directions:
Add all of the ingredients to a large bowl and whisk well to blend. Pour it into a mason jar or another air-tight container or zipper-lock style baggie.
That is it! Print out the recipe to make the muffins below so gift recipients can make these gluten free muffins.
Printable muffin recipe card:
You can make this mix without the almond flour, but it will not have the exact same light fluffy texture. To make without almond flour, omit the almond flour and add an additional ¾ a cup of gluten free flour blend.
Note you will need to monitor the moisture level of the batter because many gluten free flour blends are starchier than what I used and this will affect the moisture of the muffins.
This muffin mix will last up to 8 weeks in an air-tight container.
I store my muffin mix in a quart-sized mason jar, but you can use an air-tight container or ziplock bag.
