Plum and White Chocolate Gluten Free Muffins

If I had to pick my favourite fruit I would say plums. I love them! Not squishy ones though, nice big firm ones. Paige (my 8 year old) loves them too so today I've made the most of what's in season and made some plum gluten free muffins.

Now Alex (my fussy 9 year old with allergies) didn't try them, he's not a fan of fruit in anything unless it's hidden and he doesn't know it's there, but my girls and I did and they got the big thumbs up!

Plum and White Chocolate Gluten Free Muffins Recipe

Gluten free, wheat free, dairy free, soy free, nut free, can be egg free.

Makes approximately 12 large muffins


1¼ cup (160g) Bob's Red Mill All Purpose Baking Flour
1 tsp xantham gum(or guar gum)
½ cup (75g) rapadura or sugar
2 tsp gluten free baking powder
½ cup (110g) coconut oil, melted
1 egg (or 1 chia egg - 1 tbsp chia seeds plus 3 tbsps water - let it sit for 5 mins, then add)
1 tsp vanilla extract
½ cup (125mls) milk of choice
½ large firm finely cut plum (about 70g of fruit)
⅓ cup (70g) dairy free white chocolate chips (or regular if dairy okay)


  • Heat oven to 180° C
  • Prepare muffin tray - I use If You Care Large Baking Cups
  • Prepare chia egg if using so it can sit and gel while you prepare the rest of the muffin mix
  • Put all dry ingredients except choc chips (and chia seeds if using chia egg) into a food processor or Thermomix and blitz until well combined (speed 9 for 10 secs in Thermomix)
  • Add milk of choice, coconut oil, egg (or chia egg) and vanilla extract and mix until well combined (speed 5 for 5 secs in Thermomix), scrape down and repeat if necessary
  • Mix choc chips and plum in by hand (if you have a Thermomix you can mix on reverse on speed 4 for 5 secs)
  • Place muffin mixture evenly in pan - I use an ice cream scoop to get evenly sized muffins (it saves fights later on ;) )
  • Place in oven and cook for 20 minutes or until cooked through
  • Remove from oven and leave in the pan to cool for 5 minutes
  • Remove from pan and place muffins on a wire rack to cool completely

PS. If you're using another brand of gluten free flour you probably won't need the xanthan gum - it usually has it added. I particularly like the Bob's Red Mill All Purpose Baking Flour for the results I get and because it's rice free so it's perfect if Alex wants to try :-)
