Gluten Free Almond Poppyseed Muffins
Gluten Free Living – 2022
Gluten Free Almond Poppyseed Muffins are really delightful. These moist, delicious muffins include almond extract and finely diced almonds to give it that pop of almond flavor. Poppyseeds also increase the flavor and texture. I used King Arthur gluten free flour and thought the muffins turned out wonderfully well in texture and taste.

Our church hosts a “Grandmas in Prayer” group to pray for our grandchildren and the public and private schools in our city. We meet every Thursday morning during the school season. It’s an honor and privilege to lift up these schools and our own grandchildren in prayer each week. Back in August, we hosted an open house to attract more grandmas to join us. We had lots of breakfast type foods including these muffins.
I thought it would be nice to take a regular muffin recipe and convert it to gluten free in case anyone came with gluten intolerance. We had some muffins left over afterwards so I handed them off to one of our staff guys whose wife prefers gluten free food. Everyone really enjoyed these muffins.
Don’t be alarmed at how soupy the batter looks in this recipe. The thing with GF flour is it absorbs other ingredients more slowly than wheat flour, but in the end it does the trick. Don’t make the mistake of adding extra flour or the muffins may turn out tough. Thankfully, gluten free flour is much more abundant now and has a much better consistency than it did 10-12 years ago when gluten free products first started coming out. I thought King Arthur’s GF flour was very easy to work with and made an excellent GF muffin.
Gluten Free Almond Poppyseed Muffins are easy to prepare and make a wonderful addition to your weekend, company or holiday breakfast or brunch menu. Try them for Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Year’s and everyone will love them.
Gluten Free Almond Poppyseed Muffins are absolutely delightful.
These muffins turned out moist and flavorful.
The almond extract in the recipe amps up the flavor making these muffins irresistible.
These gluten free muffins are great to bake for family, company or holiday breakfasts when you have GF friends attending.
Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients.
Place sugar in a mixing bowl. Add eggs, poppyseeds, almond extract, baking powder and salt.
Add finely diced almonds and oil.
Add gluten free flour.
Stir gently until the GF flour is worked into the other ingredients. But DO NOT OVERMIX!
Place paper liners in 12 muffin tins. Spray with cooking spray. Spoon muffin batter into sprayed paper liners.
Bake muffins at 425 degrees for 5 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees. Continue baking 13-15 minutes more or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
Gluten Free Almond Poppyseed Muffins are great for tea parties or brunch.
Almonds and poppyseeds provide a really great pairing. These muffins are fantastic.
Your gluten free friends and family will love eating these spectacular muffins!
If you want to make these muffins even healthier, consider substituting avocado oil and monkfruit sugar for the regular sugar and oil in the recipe.
Here’s the recipe.
