These easy gluten free blueberry oat muffins make an amazing breakfast or snack. This healthy recipe includes oatmeal, frozen blueberries, applesauce and almond flour. These dense muffins are great for those new to gluten free baking too!
Blueberry muffins are one of my favorite portable snacks. They are perfect for breakfast when I need to get out of the house in a hurry. I love them heated up with some ghee in the afternoons. They are easy to pack in lunches and they freeze well for later.
These Gluten Free Blueberry Oat Muffins combine delicious blueberries with oats to give a more substantial snack. I love to use frozen wild blueberries to give a burst of flavor.
These healthy muffins are very dense and do not rise a lot. They will be cooked all the way through, but will not have a large muffin top like gluten muffins do. You may also notice that they will deflate a bit after they start to cool. This is totally normal and happens with dense gluten free baking.
Can you make gluten free blueberry muffins with almond flour?
Yes. These muffins are made with a mix of almond flour, regular gluten free flour and rolled oats. Make sure you use rolled oats that are certified gluten free! Some oats are processed with regular gluten flour and are not gluten free.

Can I freeze these gluten free muffins?
Yes! I love to freeze these muffins in a freezer safe container to have them for later. You can make two batches and freeze one or freeze half of these.
It makes life so much easier when I don't have time to bake to have muffins in the freezer for breakfast or snacks. I like to freeze them individually so I can pull out one at a time. This works great for when I need something to put in lunches also.

2 large Eggs
¼ cup Granulated Sugar
¼ cup Brown Sugar

½ tsp. Ground Cinnamon
¾ cup Almond Milk (or your milk of choice)
1 ¼ cup Almond Flour
1 ¼ cup Gluten Free Flour
1 ¼ cup Rolled Oats
1 cup Blueberries, frozen or fresh

Hi! Do you think these would turn out with maple syrup instead of sugar? I might try it!
I do think maple syrup would work. I would use 1/3 cup maple syrup instead of the 1/4 cup granulated and 1/4 cup brown sugar. If the batter seems too runny you could add another 1/4 cup of gluten free flour.
These tasted fabulous! I used coconut sugar in place of the brown sugar. And added some walnuts (my favorite!) They just didn’t puff up. My baking powder was new. So, they tasted great but looked like hockey pucks. Still, would make them again.
Thanks Sandi! I'm not sure why they wouldn't have puffed up. The sugar substitution wouldn't have had anything to do with it.
I have a nut allergy in the house is there a different gluten free flour I could use instead of the almond flour?
Hi Carlyn! I would try replacing the almond flour with 1 cup rice flour and another 1/4 cup of oats. The almond flour is usually a bit coarser than rice flour so I think adding some more oats will counteract that and the muffins shouldn't be too dense. Enjoy! ~Elaine
