  • ¼ c coconut oil melted
  • ¼ c butter softened
  • 2 large eggs room temperature
  • ½ c honey
  • 1 ½ c white rice flour
  • ¾ c tapioca starch
  • 1 tsp xanthan gum
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ c lemon juice
  • ¼ c milk or almond milk
  • 2 Tbsp lemon zest
  • 1 c frozen blueberries thawed for 30 minutes


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl combine oil, butter, eggs and honey. Mix by hand or with a mixer on low speed until just combined.
  3. In a separate medium-sized bowl sift together white rice flour, tapioca starch, xanthan gum, baking soda, and salt. 

  4. Alternatively add dry ingredients to the butter/honey bowl with the lemon juice and milk until all are added. Mix by hand or with a mixer on low speed.
  5. Dab the thawed blueberries with a paper towel to remove excess moisture. Hand mix in the blueberries and lemon zest until just combined. * 
  6. Line 12 muffin cups with muffin papers and spray with a bit of non-stick cooking spray. Divide muffin batter into equal amounts between the cups.
  7. Bake for 23-26 minutes**, or until a toothpick can be inserted in and comes out clean.

Recipe Notes

*Try not to overmix so the blueberries do not bleed their color into the rest of the muffin batter.
**If using fresh blueberries: Your cook time may be less. Make sure to watch the muffins at around 22 minutes to see if they are done!
