By contributing writer Tessa

A perfect muffin to greet mom with on Mother’s Day morning, these Gluten-Free Raspberry Streusel Muffins were an instant hit with my kiddos.  They ate up the whole batch before I was able to snap a picture!

While I chose raspberries, any berry will work well in this muffin. Choose Mom’s favorite.

Raspberry Streusel Muffins - Gluten Free

Yield 12


Wet Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt (I used coconut milk yogurt) or sour cream
  • 1/2 cup light olive oil, avocado oil, etc.
  • 1 cup organic cane sugar (I used part stevia)
  • 2 eggs (an egg replacer should work well too)
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

Dry Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup brown rice flour
  • 1/2 cup sorghum flour
  • 1/2 cup tapioca flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon guar or xanthum gum OR 2 teaspoons gelatin

Add In

  • 1 1/2 cups fresh raspberries (or other berry, chopped if large)

Streusel Topping (optional)

  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons brown rice or sorghum flour
  • 1 tablespoon solid fat (butter, coconut oil, palm shortening)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 12 cup muffin pan.
  2. In the bowl of a mixer, beat the wet ingredients.
  3. With the mixer on low, sprinkle in the baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Then continue with the flours.
  4. Gently fold in the raspberries.
  5. Distribute batter evenly in the greased muffin tin.
  6. In a small bowl, place all the streusel ingredients.
  7. Using a pastry cutter, fork, or table knives, cut the fat into the mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle over the muffins.
  8. Place in a preheated oven and bake for about 20 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center of one muffin comes out clean.


If you use frozen fruit, you will need to bake the muffins longer.Not gluten free? You can substitute 1 1/2 cups regular flour for the gluten-free flours and gum.
