If your life looks anything like mine, then making sure you have a healthy breakfast is a good intention. Unfortunately, it usually falls to the wayside in the oh-too-usual rushed madness at my house in the mornings. Heaven forbid that you have a special diet to take into consideration as well! Anything that’s convenient to grab an eat-on-the-run is usually not the best option and doesn’t fit into most healthy lifestyles, either. It’s difficult to find gluten-free muffin recipes that aren’t pumped full of excess sugar.
Well, I have some enlightening news for you. You CAN have a quick and healthy breakfast any day of the week that fits into your gluten-free lifestyle. Homemade gluten-free muffins are an easy, on-the-go treat. And, since you’re cooking them up yourself, you get to control their nutritional content. All it requires is a little prep time once a week and you’ll have breakfast ready to go for days!
I’ve scoured the internet for some yummy, gluten-free muffin recipes. Here are my 15 favorites! This is by no means an exhaustive list (I could find hundreds), but it should give you plenty of variety and options to get you going!
Lemon, blueberry, and lavender present a unique but delicious combination in these grain-free muffins. You will love the flavor infusion of these healthy ingredients!
I’m a HUGE fan of cinnamon buns, so I say, “Yes, please, and thank you!” to Lexi’s Clean Kitchen for these muffins. They use a combination of nut flours plus plenty of other yum factors, like cinnamon, bananas, honey, and maple syrup.
The genius mom over at Sugar-Free Mom found a way to hide healthy ingredients like quinoa and carrots in a muffin. How did she do it? By making apples the star! These naturally-sweetened, healthy muffins are tasty enough for the whole family to enjoy (and no one needs to know about the quinoa and carrot).
If you’re a fan of the humble pumpkin, then you’ll love these healthy muffins. Oats take the place of flour and the short list of ingredients includes only whole, clean foods. They’re good enough to be labeled “favorite” by Pinch of Yum, so I would definitely give them a try!
We had to include something with chocolate in our list of gluten-free muffin recipes! These Clean Eating Chocolate Coconut Muffins feature chocolate, oats, and coconut, not to mention a long list of other healthy ingredients. They taste decadent and naughty, but they’re good for you and absolutely gluten- and guilt-free.
