Recipe: Gluten-Free Kefir Muffins

A Cultures for Health favorite, our team makes these muffins at least twice a week! Similar to our Kefir-Soaked Muffins recipe, this recipe is an easy way to use up extra milk kefir or milk leftover from activating your milk kefir grains. Grab a helping hand and you'll be ready to pop these delightful treats in the oven in under 5 minutes! They're that simple!


  • 3 cups Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free 1 To 1 Baking flour (or gluten-free flour of choice)
  • 2 cups milk kefir
  • 2/3 cups honey or maple syrup
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. sea salt
  • 4 Tbsp. melted butter or melted coconut oil
  • 1 handful of add-ins of your choice (diced apple, chocolate chips, raisins, orange zest, etc.)


  1. Preheat oven to 375° F.
  2. Mix together gluten-free baking flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
  3. Add milk kefir, lightly beaten eggs, honey and melted butter or oil and mix.
  4. Add any additional desired ingredients such as raisins, chocolate chips, diced apples, etc.
  5. Spoon batter into a muffin tray that has been buttered or lined with paper liners. (Silicone muffin trays are especially handy!)
  6. Place in preheated oven and bake 15 to 18 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the center of a muffin.
  7. Enjoy your delicious, gluten-free kefir muffins!


We used Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-free Baking flour in this recipe, but there are a handful of gluten-free flours out there that may also work spectacularly. Just keep in mind that this recipe was tested with only this brand, so the muffins *may* turn out differently with other gluten-free flours.

Happy Baking!
