We are kicking off our fourth week of no school / COVID-19 quarantine and I’m grateful we had spring weather this past weekend. I find my mood and energy is majorly impacted by the weather lately, and after many rainy, dreary days last week we finally had a nice clip of sunshine and warm temperatures.

The kids spent a lot of time outdoors: fishing, biking, bubbles/sidewalk chalk, and Leona snipped some spring daffodils for me. I did some spring cleaning/purging, started a new book and tried this new baking recipe. I’m not someone that does a ton of baking, I’d much rather whip up an awesome dinner, but this recipe is DEFINITELY a keeper.

Gluten Free Strawberry Muffins

Another easy recipe and kid-friendly. Don't have strawberries? You could easily substitute blueberries instead! I used king arthur's gluten free baking mix but you could sub for another instead.

Servings 9 muffins


  • 1 1/2 cup gluten free all purpose baking mix I used King Arthur Flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoons melted butter or oil of choice
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk of choice
  • 1 teaspoon gluten free vanilla extract
  • 1 cup fresh strawberries could use frozen or blueberries instead!
  • cinnamon sugar for topping


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit. Grease 9 wells of a muffin tin or line muffin tin with liners.
  • Combine dry ingredients in medium bowl. Set aside.
  • Whisk melted butter/oil, eggs, milk and vanilla in a bowl.
  • Stir dry ingredients into wet ingredients. Make sure to scrape down sides of bowl to fully combine. Get rid of any lumps!
  • Fold in strawberries.
  • Fill muffin cups almost full. Then sprinkle cinnamon sugar on top.
  • Let muffins sit in pan for 10 minutes and then bake at 350 for 20-24 minutes. Muffins are done when you’ve inserted a toothpick, and toothpick comes out clean!
  • Let cool for 5 minutes and then transfer from muffin tin to a rock to cool.
