How to make Gluten Free StrawberryLemon Muffins

Looking for a new way to enjoy juicy strawberries? You're in the right place! Let's make some easy and delicious Strawberry Lemon Muffins. and a big BONUS- these are gluten free!

Here's what you need

Ingredients  -– gluten free all purpose flour – cornmeal – baking powder – baking soda – granulated sugar – demerara sugar- this makes the tops of the muffins irresistible. – fine sea salt – fresh strawberries – definitely use fresh. I don’t recommend frozen strawberries in this recipe. – buttermilk – eggs – ghee- butter can be used as well – lemon- you will use both the fresh lemon juice and lemon zest - dried thyme (optional)

Step 1

First you will preheat the oven to 400 degrees. In large bowl, combine the gluten free flour plus all the other dry ingredients. Gently whisk together. 

Step 2

In a separate bowl add the wet ingredients: combine the buttermilk, eggs, ghee, lemon zest and lemon juice. Give it a stir to combine and then add to the dry ingredients. Line pan with muffin liners and spoon batter evenly into the 12 cups.

Step 3

Place the sliced strawberries on top, about 2-3 slices each muffin. Then sprinkle the muffin tops with the demerara sugar for a nice coating. Bake the muffins in the oven for 20 minutes, until golden brown . A toothpick should come out clean when inserted in the center of a muffin..

Step 4

Remove from the oven when done and set aside to cool for 10 minutes. Transfer the muffins to a wire rack. Store leftovers in an airtight container.

There is a secret ingredient in here: Thyme. Thyme and Fresh Lemon are a delicious combo, especially for savory dishes. But have you tried it with baking? Before you think about omitting thyme from this recipe, try something new and test out this flavor combination! I use dried thyme for these strawberry muffins and then I garnish with fresh. {garnishing is optional}
