I have a fresh batch of muffins for ya and I have a feeling you are going to love these gems!

It’s no surprise to anyone on Instagram, I am seriously feeling the muffin vibe lately. I have been on a kick of snacking on these Gluten-free Bakery-Style Blueberry Muffins over the past few days and I have a feeling you guys are going to love them.

They’re made with all egg-free and nut-free ingredients plus they are gluten-free and have that bakery-style vibe to them. Extra cakey and filled with organic blueberries and sweetened with a little coconut sugar! 

I also add in collagen peptides (totally optional but I recommend it!) for extra protein and nutrients. You can read more on collagen here and why I use Vital Protein’s collagen peptides for everything. I have been using them for years now and they always do the trick.

Ever since I remade my Bakery-Style Banana Spice Muffins and Carrot Cake Muffins, they have me on a serious muffin binge. You recently saw those Paleo Blueberry Crumb Cake Muffins I made and I cannot recommend them enough!

  1. The collagen is an expensive item to throw in muffins, so I appreciate that you mention that it’s not necessary. If not using, would you fill that void with anything else or just leave it out without substitution? These look so good!

  2. Made these yesterday and love them! I used an egg instead of a flax egg and subbed the non-dairy milk for organic whole milk (ran out of coconut milk). Also omitted the collagen and topped them with the streusel recipe from one of your other muffin recipes before baking. AMAZING! The oat flour gives them the perfect texture.

  3. These are incredible! I used the flax egg and mashed banana. I am moving and didn’t have coconut sugar on hand so I used 1/4-1/3 c of organic cane sugar instead- less since it’s sweeter than coconut sugar. Everything else I followed. Soooo delicious. These will be a regular!

  4. Hi! I love this recipe and am trying to figure out the nutritional details for my weight watchers plan. Any way to get that information? Thank you!
