Gluten-free white choocolate raspberry muffins are a yummy muffin that’s full of flavor! With fresh raspberries and a bit of white chocolate, and topped with a crunchy topping, the flavors and textures will win anyone over!
I recently asked on Facebook what everyone’s favorite muffin was and a few people mentioned white chocolate raspberry muffins. While I had seen that combo before, I actually had never had them myself. To the kitchen I went, and created these gluten-free white chocolate raspberry muffins with almond streusel topping!
We grow raspberries in our backyard, and this is prime picking time, so I told hubby I needed some for baking. He brought in about 2 cups of fresh red raspberries for me. I used a mounded cupful in this recipe (while I munched on the rest!)
I considered adapting my gluten-free lemon blueberry muffin recipe, but instead decided to try an entirely new muffin recipe. I found this muffin recipe over at the blog Winter Monroe and it looked perfect! I made just a few changes to make it gluten-free and suit some of my preferences.
Doesn’t that muffin look delicious?
Now let’s talk about what you need for making these.
Notes on ingredients for these gluten-free raspberry muffins with white chocolate:
- Gluten-free flour: Use a good quality certified gluten-free flour blend. Some that I generally recommend are: gfJules, King Arthur Measure for Measure, Authentic Foods Multi-Blend Flour, Gluten-free Mama’s Almond Blend, and Cup4Cup.
- Xanthan gum: If your flour blend doesn’t have xanthan or guar gum in it already, you’ll need to add it, as indicated in the recipe, otherwise your muffins will fall apart. I buy mine from Amazon.
- Buttermilk: Buttermilk makes these tender. If you can’t have dairy, you can make your own dairy-free buttermilk substitute.
- White Chocolate: You can use white chocolate morsels (I like the Trader Joe’s white chocolate baking chips) or you can chop up white chocolate bars. You can also use Guittard vanilla milk chips (which are similar to white chocolate chips).
- Nuts: There aren’t any nuts in the muffins, just in the topping. I used these chopped almonds that are certified gluten-free from nuts.com. You can use these chopped walnuts instead if you prefer. If you have nut allergies, you could just omit the nuts from the topping and have a plain streusel topping.
Tools you need to make these:
I’m allergic to walnuts, so I made an almond streusel topping instead. I really loved this almond streusel topping and plan on using it in other recipes for sure.
