Dry Ingredients

  • 2.5 cups gluten-free flour
  • 1 1/4 cups light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
  • 1.5 teaspoons baking powder (cornstarch-free)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Wet Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup avocado oil
  • 2 flax eggs (2 tbsp ground flax + 4 tbsp warm water)
  • 3/4 cup warm water
  • 2 teaspoons bourbon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon lemon extract (or 1/2 lemon freshly squeezed)

Berries & Zest

  • 1 cup raspberries, blueberries, and/or blackberries (rinsed & patted dry)
  • 1/2 lemon Zest from 1/2 lemon (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
  2. Line a 12-muffin tin with paper liners.
  3. Whisk together the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
  4. Combine the wet ingredients by whisking them together in a bowl.
  5. Combine the wet and dry ingredients, mix thoroughly until it is smooth.
  6. Add your berries and lemon zest (if using) and stir gently just until combined.
  7. Spoon into lined muffin cups.  I usually use a tablespoon to do this.

  8. Bake for 23 to 25 minutes, until golden-brown & firm. Test for doneness with a toothpick or cake tester, it should come out clean.
  9. Allow the muffins to cool for about five minutes, then remove them onto a wire rack and let them finish cooling.
  10. Feel free to eat one while they are warm from the oven - so delish!
  11. Don’t forget you can freeze extras for on-the-go breakfasts & snacks.
