Gluten Free Strawberry Banana Streusel Muffins

Gluten Free Living – 2015

Gluten Free Strawberry Banana Streusel Muffins are moist and delicious! Strawberries are one of my favorite fruits. Add them to bananas (another favorite), and presto, you have a wonderful combination of flavors that always works. It works well in pancakes, and it certainly works well in these luscious muffins. Along with strawberry-banana Greek yogurt, these muffins have a lovely streusel topping with walnuts and a vanilla cream icing. On top of that, I used a gluten free flour with these muffins to have a gluten free option, but if you don’t suffer from gluten intolerance, then you can use regular flour instead. Gluten Free Strawberry Banana Streusel Muffins make a superb muffin for holidays like Easter or Mother’s Day, special occasion brunches or parties, or just because you enjoy muffins or strawberries or both!

When I made breakfast goodies for our church last month, I made seven different kinds of muffins including Blueberry, Raspberry, Apple, Pina Colada, Cherry and Mixed Berry. They were all extremely well received, but my two gluten free versions were snatched up quickly, and by folks that had no allergies to gluten! I was amazed. Those who were trying to maintain a gluten free diet loved these muffins as well.

I have to admit this is one of my favorite muffin recipes and I’ve made it almost a dozen times with different combinations of fruit and nuts, always with great success. I do recommend one change, however, if you end up using gluten free flour. The baking mix I used was of a finer quality than normal unbleached flour, so to achieve the same consistency as regular flour, I recommend adding an additional 1/2 cup of gluten free flour to the batter so the muffins won’t fall quite so flat after baking. I’ve included that notation in the recipe card below.

If you’re looking for a scrumptious gluten free muffin recipe, Gluten Free Strawberry Banana Streusel Muffins are some of the best you’ll ever eat. The taste is extraordinary, and you’ll have a hard time believing these are even gluten free!

I used these ingredients.

Place softened butter in a mixing bowl. Add sugar, brown sugar, eggs, vanilla, salt, baking powder, baking soda, heavy whipping cream and strawberry banana Greek yogurt in a mixing bowl.

Mix with an electric mixer until smooth.

Add gluten free flour, mashed bananas, and diced strawberries.

Mix with a wooden spoon just until combined. Do not overmix the batter.

Spray muffin tins with cooking spray. Or you can grease tins and flour them with gluten free flour. Spread batter into muffin tins until full.

I used these ingredients to make the streusel topping.

Melt butter. Add remaining streusel ingredients and stir to combine. Spread mixture evenly over top of each muffin and press streusel lightly into muffin batter so ingredients adhere.

Bake muffins in a preheated 425 oven for 5 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 and bake an additional 15-19 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool muffins before adding glaze.

I used these ingredients to make the glaze. Heavy whipping cream works much better than milk in this recipe.

Whisk ingredients to combine.

Spoon icing ingredients into a zip lock bag. Zip the bag closed. Cut off a very small tip from one corner. Pipe icing over muffins in any design you desire.

Recipe Notes

NOTE: Be sure to stir yogurt before adding to ingredients.

NOTE: Milk will not bring the proper consistency in the glaze. Cream is preferred.

NOTE: I’ve added an additional ½ cup flour to the recipe that was not included in the original recipe since gluten free flour has a different consistency than wheat flour.

NOTE: Pamela's Artisan blend gluten free flour may be a better option for the gluten free flour in the recipe.

    Hi Teresa, I was scrolling through your recipes looking for gluten free muffins to bring to a brunch I have been invited to where one of the people attending has to eat gluten free. I’m leaning towards this one. I was wondering where you purchase the gluten free flour. Do you find it at the regular grocery store? I am new to gluten free baking. Is Pamela’s your favorite brand? Thanks for your help. These muffins look delicious!

      Hey, Shari, I usually get this at Sprouts, but you can probably find it at Whole Foods or Trader Joes. Even our Kroger carries it. While I used Pamela’s baking and pancake mix, she also has an artisan mix for breads that might be a better choice. I’ve used it making biscuits and a few other things since making that Strawberry banana muffin recipe and I really liked it for baked goods. My niece uses one she likes better than Pamela’s called “Better Batter.” You can check out their website or get it on Amazon, I think. I hope you try it. This recipe is sensational.

        Thanks so much, Teresa! I will check it out and let you know how it goes. We have a Sprouts right around the corner, so that works great for me.

          I made these today, and I absolutely loved them! There were so many good flavors incorporated into them. I took your advice and used the artisan flour blend. They rose beautifully. Thank you so much, Teresa, for a fabulous recipe!

    Your instructions say, “Spray muffin tins with cooking spray with flour. I used Pillsbury.”

    Actually, I didn’t know that Pillsbury made any gluten free cooking spray. The recipe sounds delicious, so I plan to make these muffins soon, but will likely just grease the muffin tin. The original PAM is supposed to be GF.

      You are completely right, Julie. I completely spaced out on that one. Grease and flouring with gluten free flour, or spraying very generously with regular cooking spray is the best way to go.
