Ingredients

  • 2 cups gluten free flour
  • cup sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp finely ground sea salt
  • ¼ tsp ground nutmeg
  • cup avocado oil
  • cup milk (dairy or non-dairy)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • ¾ cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 lemon zest

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a 12-cup muffin tin with liners. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, sea salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Set aside. 
  • In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the avocado oil, milk, eggs, and almond extract until well-combined.
  • Make a well in the center of the dry mixture and pour in the wet mixture. Stir just until combined. 
  • Gently stir in the blueberries and lemon zest, reserving a few blueberries to put on top of the muffins if desired. 
  • Fill each muffin cup ¾ full of batter. (Batter will be thick)
  • Bake for 20 minutes, or until muffins are golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. Allow to cool in the pan for 5 minutes before removing.
    Blueberries will be hot so make sure they are cooled before enjoying the muffins!

Notes

Storage:  Store the muffins in an air-tight container at room temperature for up to 3 days. Layer a paper towel underneath and over the muffins to prevent them from becoming soggy.
