Gluten Free Strawberry Muffins

These gluten free strawberry muffins are so moist & delicious! The mini size is perfect for snacking!

I might have been a little ambitious. I was browsing the new Wegman’s grocery store and I spotted a deal on strawberries. I just can’t pass up a sale. So I grabbed the 2lb container and put it in the cart. Once I got home, I realized I had a mountain of strawberries to consume. Not a bad problem, right?

So while I normally stick to blueberry muffins, I decided to switch it up a little and try a strawberry muffin. Their sweetness is perfect in this recipe and the almond flour is sturdy enough to handle the fruit pieces.

Since they’re made with almond flour, they’re denser than a normal muffin but they’ll definitely fill you up. These mini muffins can actually curb your appetite until your next meal!

These little muffins pack a punch! I loved the texture. You could obviously turn these into regular size muffins, you’d just need to bake them a little longer.

I might need to whip up a second batch of these for the weekend! Alex and I are planning on doing a little hiking this weekend and I’m hoping we’ll also have a chance to take our bikes out. While the heat hasn’t really let up, I’m getting the feeling that summer is winding down so we’re trying to make the most of it!

These mini strawberry muffins are paleo, gluten free, and delicious! They're packed with protein so a little muffin can keep you full and energized!

What’s your favorite kind of muffin?


  1. These look delicious!

  2. Yum! We don’t eat gluten free exclusively but I am always on the hunt for something delicious like this! I have guests coming in town next week and this looks so easy to make. Thanks!

  3. Love these!! Perfect use for all those strawberries! I hope you guys have fun on your hike!

  4. These look so delicious! Do you think i could use rice flour or coconut flour instead? I’m only asking because those are the two i have on hand!

  5. My son is obsessed with strawberries he would love these!

  6. I wish I had one now with my tea! These little strawberry muffins sound scrumptious and I will have to pick up some strawberries to try them (maybe not 2 lbs though haha)

  7. I can’t wait to try making these! I’m a huge blueberry muffin fan though, so I might switch the strawberries to blueberries! ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. These muffins are so darn cute! I can’t wait to make them – it sounds like a pretty simple recipe which I love. My favorite kind of muffins are these strawberry streusal muffins that have a cinnamon crumb topping – soooo good. I also love carrot pumpkin cheesecake muffins ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. What can I use instead of coconut oil? And apple cider vinegar?

    • Hey Carmen! You could probably swap in vegetable oil for the coconut oil. You could try swapping white vinegar for the apple cider vinegar but you might detect a slight vinegar taste, I’m not sure. If you try it, let me know!

  10. So you totally could have taken your bikes out last night for Breakaway RVA! I saw Brittany! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  11. These looks amazing babe! And yay for Wegmans! There was one right near my old school and my friend and I used to go the for dinner! Such fun memories! Also, I hear ya.. I get SO ambitious when I see fresh fruit on sale! I LOAD up! Happy weekend!

  20. Yummy! You got me, I looked at the photo and thought it would have oatmeal in the recipe.

  21. These look so moist and delicious as you described! Definitely making these for breakfast soon! Thanks for sharing.

  22. I made these today and love them! I doubled the recipe and ended up with about 24 mini muffins so not sure why the original recipe yields only six?!
    I also substituted organic maple syrup for the sweetener. I have more strawberries so I think I’ll make another batch : )

    • I made the recipe as is and got 13 mini muffins. I guess Liz fills those muffin tins full! Very yummy recipe.

      (I tried to rate this recipe 5 stars but it would only let me rate it 3 or less)

  23. I thought I’d have to read a book for a dicevosry like this!

  24. I can’t believe I’ve been going for years without knowing that.
