Blueberry Muffins


INGREDIENTS:

  •  1 and 3/4 cups Gluten Free all-purpose flour 

  •  1 teaspoon baking soda

  •  1 teaspoon baking powder

  •  1/2 teaspoon salt

  •  1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened to room temperature

  •  1/2 cup granulated sugar or Monk Fruit Sugar

  •  1/4 cup packed light brown sugar or Coconut Sugar

  •  1 egg, at room temperature

  •  1/2 cup plain/vanilla yogurt, at room temperature

  •  2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract or paste

  •  1/4 cup milk, or plant-based milk at room temperature

  •  2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries

  •  2 1/2 TBSP Fresh squeezed orange juice & 1 tsp orange zest


DIRECTIONS:

1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Grease/Line a 12-count muffin pan with coconut oil or

use cupcake liners. Grease/line a second pan with 2 liners because recipe

yields about 18 muffins. Set aside.

1. Mix all of the topping ingredients together. Set aside.

2. Whisk the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt together in a large

bowl. Set aside.

3. Using a handheld or stand mixer fitted with a paddle or whisk attachment,

beat the butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar together on high speed

until smooth and creamy, about 2 minutes. On medium speed, add the eggs

one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in the yogurt and vanilla

extract and orange juice and zest on medium speed until combined. With

the mixer running on low speed, add the dry ingredients and milk into the

wet ingredients and beat until no flour pockets remain. Fold in the

blueberries.

4. Spoon the batter into liners, filling them all the way to the top. Spoon brown

sugar topping on each, gently pressing it down into the surface so it sticks.

Bake for 5 minutes at 425 then, keeping the muffins in the oven, reduce the

oven temperature to 375°F (177°C). Bake for an additional 15-18minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. The total time these

muffins take in the oven is about 20-23 minutes, give or take. Allow the

muffins to cool for 5 minutes in the muffin pan, then transfer to a wire rack to

continue cooling.

5. Muffins stay fresh covered at room temperature for a few days or in the

refrigerator for up to 1 week.


NOTES:

Freezing Instructions: Freeze baked & cooled muffins for up to 3 months. Thaw

in the refrigerator or at room temperature before enjoying.

Sour Cream: Sour cream adds so much moisture. Plain yogurt is a great

substitute. Unsweetened applesauce or mashed banana may also be used.

Milk: You can use any milk, dairy or nondairy.

Blueberries: If using frozen blueberries, do not thaw.

For a jumbo muffin pan: 425°F for 5 minutes, then reduce to 350°F for 22-25

minutes for a total of 27-30. Makes about 6. For mini muffins: 350°F for 12-14

minutes. Makes about 36-40.
