Paleo Blueberry Muffins
Paleo blueberry muffins are a sweet and cozy way to start your morning. They’re moist, fluffy, and have a burst of fresh blueberries with every bite.
If you’ve made my all-time favorite paleo lemon blueberry cake before, this muffin recipe should look very familiar. It’s basically a simplified version of the cake — minus the lemon!
These gluten-free muffins are light, fluffy, perfectly sweet, and studded with fresh, juicy blueberries. Perfect as a healthy breakfast option or sweet afternoon snack!
Paleo Blueberry Muffin Ingredients
- Dry Ingredients: My gluten-free flour trio for baking is almost always almond flour, tapioca flour, and coconut flour. Then you’ll just need baking soda, kosher salt, and fresh blueberries.
- Wet Ingredients: Nothing fancy here — eggs, milk, maple syrup, coconut oil, apple cider vinegar, and vanilla extract.

How To Make Paleo Blueberry Muffins
Like many of my muffin, cake and quick bread recipes, you’ll mix the dry and wet ingredients separately then whisk them together. It ensures the muffins stay light and fluffy!
- Make the batter. Mix the wet and dry ingredients separately. Then whisk in the wet to the try until a smooth batter is formed.
- Fold the blueberries into the batter. I personally like to save some blueberries to top onto the muffins right before baking!
- Bake the muffins. Pour the batter into each muffin cup until its 85 to 90% full. Then bake for 28 to 33 minutes at 350°F. Make sure to do the toothpick test to make sure the insides are cooked!
Tips For The Perfect Muffins
- Don’t overmix the batter. You want to quickly blend the batter and immediately pour it into the muffin pan. That will help make the muffins nice and fluffy.
- Fresh vs frozen blueberries. Fresh is ideal for this recipe. But if you only have a pack of frozen blueberries on hand, that works too. Just note that you do not need to thaw them prior, otherwise you’ll be left with soggy muffins. Just fold the frozen blueberries into the batter directly.
- Freeze an extra batch. Because these are freezer friendly, it might be a good idea to keep a stash on hand. You never know when you can use them for a quick breakfast or snack on-the-go!
Although these muffins taste the best the day they are baked, leftovers keep well at room temperature for about 3 days. After that, you can store them in the fridge for about one week.
And if you want to freeze them, just store in a freezer-safe container for up to 2 months. When you want to enjoy, you can thaw them in the fridge or on the counter. Once thawed, you can also warm them up in the microwave if you want to cut them in half and add a pat of butter.
