- Gluten Free Flour - Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free 1 to 1 Baking Flour is my go-to flour for both sweet and savory recipes. If you are converting recipes that aren't traditionally Gluten Free, it makes measuring easy.
- Baking Powder
- Kosher Salt - Enhances all of the flavors of the ingredients.
- Sugar - Adds a hint of sweetness to the muffins and also the streusel topping.
- Dairy Free Butter - Adds richness and moisture to these blueberry muffins and helps the crumble come together.
- Almond Extract - Accents the almonds in the streusel and adds a delicate nutty flavor to the muffins themselves.
- Dairy Free Milk - Use your favorite. I like oat milk for this recipe.
- Fresh Blueberries - Sweet yet tart, they burst with flavor in every bite.
- Sliced Almonds - Adds crunch to the crumble and a delicate, buttery flavor.

Top Tip for Gluten and Dairy Free Streusel Blueberry Muffins
When mixing up your streusel topping, make sure that your Dairy Free butter is slightly room temperature. This will allow it to come together easily and give you that sandy, crumbly topping.
To make your blueberries last longer before using them, hold off rinsing them until just prior to baking with them. A dry blueberry is a happy blueberry.
