Recipe Notes

Exchanges and alternatives for this recipe;

  1. I used all-purpose flour but you can use a gluten-free flour blend or a whole wheat flour. The texture of the muffin will be different but the flavor should be the same. 
  1. You can make this recipe dairy free by swapping the milk for almond milk, oat milk, or other alternative milk of your choice. 
  1. Adding the granulated sugar to the top of the muffins before baking gives them a sweet crunchy top. Another great way to top these is to skip the granulated sugar and sprinkle on some confectioners sugar after the muffins have cooled. 

Storing and freezing muffins: 

  • Line an air tight container or ziptop bag with a paper towel to absorb extra moisture and keep in a cool place. Muffins will remain fresh for up to seven days. 

Freezing directions:

  • Cool muffins until they reach room temperature. Freezing the muffins while warm will change the texture making them less fluffy and more rubbery. 
  • Once the muffins are cooled arrange them in a single layer on a plate or tray and place in the freezer for 30-45 or until the muffins are frozen solid. 
  • Place the frozen muffins in a zip top freezer bag squeezing out any excess air. Blueberry Muffins will be good in the freezer for up to three months. 
  • To thaw place in the refrigerator or counter top overnight. To warm them up pop in the microwave for 25-30 seconds or place in a 300° oven for 5-10 minutes.
