Wet ingredients:

  • 4 large Eggs
  • 1/2 cup Coconut milk canned
  • 1/3 cup Maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup Fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp Lemon zest
  • 3 tbsp Coconut oil melted and cooled
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract

Dry ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup Coconut flour
  • 1/2 cup Gluten-free flour blend
  • 1/2 cup Almond flour
  • 1 tsp Baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp Salt


  • 3/4 cup Fresh blueberries


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line a 12 cup muffin tray with muffin liners.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine coconut flour, flour blend, baking soda, and salt.
  • Place the milk in a blender and blend until smooth. Add in the eggs, maple syrup, lemon juice, lemon zest, coconut oil, and vanilla extract. Continue to blend for about 15 seconds, until combined.
  • Pour this mixture over the dry ingredients and using a silicone spatula, gently mix until incorporated. Fold in the blueberries.
  • Divide the batter among the 12 cupcake liners of a muffin tray. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool at room temperature. Enjoy!



  • You can use fresh or frozen blueberries in this gluten-free blueberry muffin recipe.
  •  Use cupcake liners to keep the muffins from sticking to the pan. If you don't have cupcake liners make sure you grease the inside of the muffin molds.
  • Always start with the lowest cooking time recommended and watch for doneness from there.
  • Allow the muffins to cool in the pan for 2-5 minutes and then place the muffins on a cooling rack. This helps your muffins from getting, what is called in baking circles, “soggy bottoms”!
