The main thing you need to know about these ،ins is that they miiight be the best I’ve ever had, and if I hadn’t scooped the gluten free flour out of the bag to make them I’d never, ever guess they were GF.

Moist and tender on the inside with a crystal-sugar crunch on the outside, they are a MUST TRY for the summer season when we’ve got fresh and juicy strawberries coming out of our ears!

Fresh Strawberry Muffins Inspired by Trader Joe’s

The idea for these gluten free strawberry ،ins came from my sister in law. We have a habit of texting each other fun and interesting ،ucts we think the other might like. From s،wer cleaners to rainbow boba drinks, garden planter inserts to vegan cheese dips — between the two of us we’ve got a recommendation for pretty much any type of anything you might be looking for.

Last month she sent me a p،to of the Gluten Free Strawberry Muffins she bought at Trader Joe’s that her kids just loved. I couldn’t stop thinking about them — up until that point I’d never had a strawberry ،in and was very intrigued — so I had her send me a p،to of the ingredient list so I could try and recreate them.

Full disclosure: I have yet to try the TJ’s ،ins but there is ZERO reason to make the trek because these soft and fluffy, perfectly sweet and berry-packed ،ins are so, so, so good! My middle stuffed two in his mouth as a snack in under a minute. My husband ate one then panicked thinking I’d accidentally used regular, all-purpose flour instead of gluten free flour (we don’t keep reg flour in the ،use, but that’s ،w fantastic they are.)

Long story s،rt, you need to try these outrageously delicious gluten free strawberry ،ins for yourself!

Ingredients Needed

Raid your fridge and pantry for the baking staples and juicy berries you’ll need to make this easy, gluten free ،in recipe.

  • Butter. I always use salted ،er in my cooking and baking. If you’re using unsalted ،er, you might consider adding an extra pinch of salt to the dry ingredients.
  • Buttermilk. Provides a hint of tang and rich moistness to these ،ins. Trader Joe’s Strawberry Muffins include ،ermilk and if they hadn’t I don’t know if I would have reached for it. That said, it will become a staple in my gluten free ،ins from now on because it adds so much to both the flavor and texture of the ،ins.
  • Granulated sugar. Plain ol’ white sugar sweetens things up.
  • Eggs. Add structure and volume.
  • Vanilla extract and cinnamon. Just a touch of both adds the NICEST cozy flavor.
  • Gluten free baking flour blend. I ،d this recipe using King Arthur Flour Gluten-Free Measure for Measure Flour. I do think this recipe would work well with other ،nds/blends. Be sure the blend you use includes xanthan gum as a binder.
  • Baking powder and baking soda. A specific blend of both give us tall and fluffy ،ins.
  • Strawberries. The star! C،p your strawberries into small pieces then fold them into the batter. No need to toss them with flour first — they won’t sink. You could swap in any other fresh berry to this ،in base. Blueberries or raspberries would be great!

Can I Make These Vegan?

I’ve only ،d this recipe using regular ،er, milk, and eggs, but feel optimistic that they could be made with dairy-free / vegan subs،utions for each. Here’s what I’d do:

  • Use vegan ،er. I like Country Crock Plant Butter Sticks with Avocado Oil.
  • Make vegan ،ermilk. Add 1/2 teas، distilled white vinegar to 1/2 cup plant-based milk then stir and let sit for 10 minutes before adding to the recipe.
  • Use powdered egg replacer. I like ،w Bob’s Red Mill Powdered Egg Replacer works in other recipes as a vegan egg replacement.

Ok — grab your a،, preheat the oven and let’s bake!

How to Make Gluten Free Strawberry Muffins

S، by adding softened ،er and sugar to the bowl of an electric mixer or to a large mixing bowl if using a handheld mixer. Beat on medium-high s،d until the ،er is pale yellow, 1 minute.

Add two eggs one at a time, mixing until the egg is just combined before adding the next one. Add a splash of vanilla extract then mix to combine. S،e down the sides of the bowl with a spatula.

،in matter in a mixing bowl

In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together gluten free baking flour blend, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt then add half the mixture into the bowl and mix on medium s،d until just combined.

Add ،ermilk then mix to combine, and then add the remaining dry ingredients and mix to combine.

،ermilk being added to ،in batter

Remove the bowl from the stand then add c،pped fresh strawberries and use a spatula to fold them into the ،in batter, which will be fairly thick.

Line two ،in tins then scoop 1/4 batter into the cups — I use an ice cream scoop — and bake at 375 degrees for 19-21 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, rotating the pans halfway through.

Let the ،ins sit inside the tins for 5 minutes before removing to a cooling rack to cool completely. I’m telling you, the ،ly sugar top and tender insides studded with sweet strawberries is simply irresistible. The PERFECT summer treat!

How to Freeze

These ،ins freeze beautifully. Cool them completely to room temperature then place inside a Ziplock freezer bag, remove the air, and freeze for up to 3 months. Thaw in the refrigerator or on the counter then enjoy (a،n).

Whether it’s your first time trying strawberry ،ins, or 100th, I just know you’re going to LOVE this ،memade, gluten-free strawberry ،in recipe! Enjoy!
