Blueberry Muffins Gluten Free Kimberton Whole Foods Recipe

What you’ll need

  • 2 cups fresh blueberries (keep separate)

Dry Mix

  • 2 cups Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free 1-to-1 Baking Flour
  • 1 cup corn meal
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 1/4 cup sugar

Wet Mix  

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup safflower oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1  cup milk

Filling Mix  

  • 6 ounces room temperature cream cheese
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 8 crushed blueberries

Streusel Mix    

  • 1/2 stick butter (sliced into thin cross sections)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free 1-to-1 Baking Flour
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp lemon juice


Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

Thoroughly mix dry ingredients in a large bowl. Whisk wet ingredients until well mixed, and then fold wet mix into dry mix gently with a rubber spatula until fairly smooth.

Combine cream cheese filling ingredients, stirring until smooth. Using a food processor (or fork), combine streusel mix ingredients until they reach a crumbly consistency. Chill slightly before use.

Place 12 paper muffin cups in a muffin tin, and add 1 tbsp muffin mix to the bottom of each cup, mixing in one or two blueberries per muffin. Add 1 tsp cream cheese filling on top of the muffin mix. Cover the cream cheese filling with additional muffin mix, 1 Tbsp at a time, inserting additional fresh blueberries as you go. Fill each muffin cup until rounded slightly over the top of the cup.

Sprinkle chilled streusel mix generously over the top of each muffin. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean. Muffin top should be crisp and streusel will be slightly browned.

For best taste, remove from oven and let sit briefly, serving the muffins slightly warm. Let us know what you think in the comments below!
