Gluten-Free Honey Muffins

Imagine a dollop of allergen-friendly butter on these warm, fluffy Gluten-Free Honey Muffins! It is such a treat! In addition to being gluten-free and dairy-free, these muffins are egg-free, too! {Vegan + Gluten-free}

Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 cups gluten-free flour
  • 2 tablespoons monkfruit sweetener
  • 12 tablespoons 100% pure honey
  • 1 tablespoon gluten-free baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/3 cup allergen-friendly butter spread (I use Earth Balance)
  • 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk 

Instructions

  1. Set oven to 350 degrees. Line a muffin tin with approximately 12 muffin cups. Set aside.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, monkfruit sweetener, honey, baking powder, and sea salt. Cut in the butter. I like to use a potato masher for this step, however using two table knives in a criss cross fashion will also work. Then stir in the lemon juice and almond milk until just blended. Scoop the dough into the muffin cups, filling  them about 1/2 to 1/3 full. Strive to fill each cup with similar amounts and transfer excess from larger muffins to smaller muffins. This will help ensure the muffins bake evenly.
  3. Bake for about 12-15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Rotate once during baking for best results. Remove from the oven and, if desired, slice them in half and add butter, jam, honey, or fresh fruit while they are still warm.
  4. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for about 24 hours.

    Notes

    • To prevent the muffins from burning or sticking to the cups, use silicon or aluminum foil baking cups. You can also spray the bottom and sides of the muffin cavities with non-stick spray or grease them with coconut oil and then lightly dust them with gluten-free flour. 
    • For a vegan variation, use agave nectar in place of honey and enjoy some Gluten-Free Agave nectar Muffins!
    • These muffins are best enjoyed straight out of the oven. They may change in consistency over several hours and potentially lose some of their fluffiness.
