This Gluten Free Blueberry Muffin Bread is so moist and full of blueberries in every bite. Serve with a little dairy-free butter and a cup of coffee for a simple, yet delicious breakfast. This blueberry quick bread is also great for entertaining a crowd for brunch!
I am so excited to share this easy Gluten Free Blueberry Muffin Bread recipe with you today! It’s from the The Gluten-Free Quick Breads Cookbook, written by Sharon Lachendro from the blog What The Fork.
Sharon has graciously given me a copy of her book so I can share this simple recipe with all of you!
This blueberry muffin bread honestly tastes like a big loaf of blueberry muffins.. hence the name! With a sprinkle of raw sugar on top, you’ll want to make this bread every weekend for breakfast.
And you can! Because it’s seriously that easy to make. With just about 5 minutes of active preparation time, you can have this blueberry bread on the table in just about an hour.
Can I use Frozen Blueberries in Quick Bread?
This recipe is originally written with fresh blueberries, but you can use frozen blueberries, too.
If you use frozen blueberries, do not let them thaw first. Use them straight from the freezer. If you let them thaw, they will have too much water and the color will bleed.
Instead of mixing the blueberries together with the dry ingredients, as you would with fresh blueberries, carefully fold the frozen blueberries into the batter after the wet ingredients have been incorporated.
Keep in mind frozen blueberries do tend to bleed into the batter a bit more, so if you have the option to use fresh that would be my suggestion if possible.
How to Store Gluten Free Blueberry Muffin Bread
You can store this blueberry muffin bread at room temperature for up to 3 days. Just cover it with plastic wrap or aluminum foil.
You can also freeze this bread, either sliced or whole, for up to 3 months in a freezer safe bag.
I love to make a double batch of this recipe and freeze one for later! It also makes a great gift for new moms.
