Raspberry Crumble Muffins

Moist Raspberry Crumble Muffins are light, fluffy, and super easy to make and have a hint of lemon in each bite. This gluten free and dairy free recipe uses pantry staple ingredients and was inspired by a carton or two of luscious, intense, and beautifully ripe raspberries from the grocery store.

Our family loves raspberries and would usually devour a whole carton or two in just a few minutes as a snack. So, we knew they’d love these crumble muffins. We found a yummy-sounding muffin recipe and knew we were going to need to make it safe for our family with a few tweaks.

We’ve tweaked this recipe a bit to make sure it’s both free from gluten and free from dairy while still tasting amazing. We used the ingredients we already had on hand and made some tasty Raspberry Crumble Muffins.

raspberry crumble muffin ingredients

  • gluten free all purpose flour— use the spoon and level method; we stock our pantry with Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 Baking Mix and buy it in bulk here to save money. This blend does contain xanthan gum.
  • xanthan gum— omit if your all-purpose flour blend contains this or guar gum
  • granulated sugar
  • baking powder— consider this looses it’s potency after being opened for 6 months. We label our containers with the date when we open them so keep track of this.
  • baking soda— same as with the baking powder tip.
  • kosher salt
  • eggs— room temperature works best
  • dairy free sour cream— we like to use Tofutti dairy free sour cream or Wayfare Foods for this recipe
  • vanilla extract— we enjoy making our own vanilla extract and will be sharing our own recipe here soon
  • fresh or frozen raspberries— the inspiration for these perfect crumble muffins

crumble topping ingredients

  • gluten free all-purpose flour
  • granulated sugar
  • fresh lemon zest
  • dairy free butter— room temperature for 20 minutes, and we like to use Earth Balance Buttery Sticks for this recipe

The dairy free sour cream is the secret to getting the perfect moist muffins that everyone will fall in love with. It’s the same star ingredient that we use in our well-known, super soft, homemade sugar cookies.

You can easily swap out the raspberries for any other berries you have on hand, that’s how good this muffin batter is. It’s versatile and goes well with plenty of fruit. We had extra blueberries on hand and tossed a few in some extra batter and enjoyed the extra muffins bursting with blueberries too.

The crumble topping has a subtle hint of lemon from the fresh lemon zest and really takes these muffins to the next level. It interjects a fresh lemony taste into these sweet, moist muffins you really cannot beat.

kitchen utensils and gadgets for this recipe

  • muffin pans
  • muffin liners— we love using these fancy bakery cupcake and muffins liners too. When baking with these larger tulip liners you will use more batter to fill the liner and fill 12 muffins liners instead of 24.
  • mixing bowls
  • pastry blender
  • whisk
  • citrus zester—we like to use this zester when making any of our recipes with the zest of fruits.

Pro Tip: Only fill your muffin liners halfway instead of 3/4 of the way full. You don’t want to overfill the liners and end up with mega muffin top on your Raspberry Crumble Muffins.

frequently asked questions

can I use frozen raspberries

Yes. Do not thaw the berries instead add them directly to the batter. Thawing the berries will add too much liquid to the batter.

how to choose ripe raspberries

Picking out the most ripe and fresh raspberries really makes a difference in getting the best muffins from this recipe.

You know you have a fresh, ripe raspberry if it’s full of rich coloring throughout the whole berry and nice and plump in size and shape.

Toss any small, odd-shaped or ill-colored berries.

how do I store raspberries

Fresh raspberries should be cleaned, rinsed and dried with a paper towel before being stored in the refrigerator. Storing them in an air tight container or in the container in the crisper and is optimal.

They should last about 2-4 days in the refrigerator and about 6-9 months in the freezer.

do I have to use the brands you suggested

We suggest trying to use the brands we suggest. Baking and cooking with gluten free and dairy free ingredients can be very finnicky. Not all brands make the same quality products and not all of the products out there will produce the same thing in each recipe.

We test our recipes with specific brands and try to recommend them as we know they’re good using those ingredients and brands.

If you cannot find the specific ones we suggest but have access to others, you can give them a try.

can these be frozen

These muffins are best the day of and should be consumed within a day or two of baking.

do you have other allergen safe dairy free and gluten free muffin recipes

We sure do. We have a few other muffin recipes we have developed and would love for you to try out. Try our Pumpkin Muffins or Double Chocolate Chip Muffins. They’re full of flavor and are perfect anytime throughout the year.

we also have tasty donut recipes such as

Fruity Pebble Donuts, Double Chocolate Donuts, Oreo Donuts, Pumpkin Cinnamon Sugar Donuts and our Old Fashioned Sour Cream Donuts.
