Gluten free muffins recipe with sweet orange glaze

These gluten free orange muffins taste like pure heaven in every bite.

They are all things a delicious muffin should be:

  • sweet, but not overly so
  • fluffy, not dry, and do not fall apart (i.e. the perfect gluten free recipe)
  • drizzled with an extra flavor pop of delicious glaze

Basically we have the cousin to my gluten free lemon muffins.

I can’t pick a favorite because they are both so delicious!

  • oat flour
  • coconut flour
  • greek yogurt
  • eggs
  • orange zest

How to make muffins gluten free

The key to that perfect texture that doesn’t crumble is my combination of oat flour, coconut flour, and greek yogurt. 

It’s the magical trio for gluten free muffin making. 

If you’ve struggled to make great texture gluten free treats, just search the archives on Build Your Bite for many more delicious recipes just like this one!

These are great warm from the oven, or chilled in the fridge.

I store the leftovers in the fridge for that great chilled icing texture that tastes like frosting!

These muffins were a hit all around!

Enough protein to call it breakfast, but sweet enough to be dessert. 

The best kind of muffins if you ask me!

Making notes of my adjustments here just in case it helps anyone else. I made with all Cup 4 Cup flour, instead of the oat and coconut flour. I used regular vegetable oil in place of the olive oil (I just could not bring myself to use olive oil for muffins....it just seemed strange). I had to use sour cream after realizing I didn't have greek yogurt, and in the middle of making them, I realized I didn't have any baking powder! So I did some research online and ended up using baking soda and vinegar to replace the baking powder and they turned out amazing! We have an orange tree and are blessed with an abundance of oranges and this is a great way to use them!! Thanks for the recipe!

Hi I’m hoping to make these this weekend but I’m in the U.K. and have no idea about cups. Does anyone have the ingredients in grams please.

Question have you made muffins using coconut oil instead of Olive oil? Wondering if you’ll get the same outcome. Thanks for your answer.

These sound scrumptious, but I can’t do oats. Is there another gf alternative you may suggest for the oats, say almond flour? Thanks so much.

Unfortunately I haven't tested them with another flour so I can't guarantee results. If anyone else has please comment here! :)
