HOW TO BEST LINE THE MUFFIN/CUPCAKE MOLDS
TO GET TALL GLUTEN FREE MUFFINS

The very first step to make tall and soft gluten free vegan lemon blueberry muffins is how you prepare the muffin liners!

If you are in a hurry you can simply grease the cupcake molds or use store-bought cupcake liners.

BUT, to get tall muffins you will need to cut parchment paper into 15x15cm or 6×6 inch ca. squares and push them inside the muffin molds, so that the muffins will have more room to rise.

TIPS and SUBSTITUTIONS

CAN I REPLACE THE RICE FLOUR WITH OTHER GLUTEN FREE FLOURS?

I’ve only tested the recipe with this homemade blend of gluten free flours, but in my experience I can say you should be able to replace 100 gr of brown rice flour with almond flour to make almond flour blueberry muffins.
Buckwheat, millet, sorghum flour may make the muffins crumbly, while amaranth and quinoa will change the muffins taste

CAN I REPLACE THE POTATO STARCH WITH OTHER GLUTEN FREE STARCHES?

Yes, you can use corn, rice, arrow root and tapioca starch too.

IS IT OK TO USE FROZEN BLUEBERRIES?

Absolutely, I tested these muffins both fresh and froze berries and the result is great in both cases.

WHAT IF I WANT TO MAKE GLUTEN FREE MUFFINS USING BLUEBERRY JAM INSTEAD?

No problem, once you have filled the molds with the batter, add a generous teaspoon of jam to each muffin and bake immediately.

HOW CAN I MAKE LACTOSE FREE VEGETARIAN GLUTEN FREE MUFFINS?

You can replace the margarine with lactose free butter, plant based milk with lactose free milk and the apple sauce with one egg.

I’D LIKE TO AVOID MARGARINE …

You can replace the margarine with a plain seed oil or omit the fat part completely and simply add two more tablespoons of apple sauce (you will get a denser texture though)

CAN I MAKE SUGAR FREE BLUEBERRY MUFFINS?

You sure can by replacing the sugar with a couple more tablespoons of apple sauce and add one tablespoon rice flour.
