Gluten Free Flaxseed Muffins
Tender, sweet, and loaded with super-foods like honey, flax seed, and bananas, these Gluten-Free Honey Flax Seed Muffins are our new go-to muffin. If you’ve read any of my other breakfast posts, you’ll know that my kids won’t eat cereal.
I’m not complaining. I LOVE that they want fresh baked muffins and homemade cereal for breakfast. Some of their favorites are my Paleo Chocolate Chip Muffins, and my Grain-Free Double Chocolate Muffins.
Muffins like these honey flaxseed muffins can be a healthy and nutritious way to start the day.
Because they like homemade breakfasts it gives my husband and I more control over what they eat. We know exactly what they are putting into their growing bodies. We love these Gluten-Free Honey Flax Seed Muffins because of how nutritious they are.
They are naturally sweetened with honey, bananas, and applesauce. Each of which has vitamins and minerals their growing bodies need.
Is Flaxseed Gluten Free
I often get the question is flaxseed gluten free. Yes, it’s a seed and it’s nutritious. We often add flaxseed to recipes to get an extra boost of vitamins and fiber.
One of my favorite ways to use flaxseed is in these Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies.
The combination of ingredients and flavors in these flaxseed muffins produce an incredible flavor and texture. You won’t be able to tell that they are gluten-free. These Gluten-Free Honey Flax Seed Muffins store well at room temperature. They also freeze well. I’ve made a big batch of muffins and frozen half for the following week.
How to make flaxseed muffins
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- In a medium mixing bowl combine flour, ground flax seed, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
- In a separate medium mixing bowl, beat together egg, honey, oil, mashed banana, applesauce, and dairy-free milk.
- Add dry mixture to wet mixture, and stir just till blended.
- Spoon batter evenly into paper liners, filling about 2/3 full.
- Bake for 20-22 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted near center comes out clean.
- Store leftover muffins in an airtight container at room temperature for up to two days.

Because these muffins already have 1/2 cup of flax seed, I would not recommend trying to use a flax-egg in place of the the egg. I think it would throw the balance of the other ingredients off and come out too wet.
