Get ready to use up those freshly picked blueberries in these Blueberry Recipes, each of these recipes can also be made gluten-free too!
As we head into the summer months, that means many of us are picking fresh blueberries or growing them in our gardens. I’m always looking for new blueberry recipes to try, so this year I thought I’d make us a big list of blueberry recipes.
Something about making some freshly baked goods with freshly picked blueberries just floods me with summer memories. I’m not sure why but for some reason, that just means it’s summer in our family.
We’ve already enjoyed Blueberry Crisp and next up the plan is to make some giant Blueberry Muffins. I try to savor the summers with the kids especially as quickly as they go and baking with them is a great activity for the summer!
Can you freeze blueberries?
Blueberries are very easy to freeze, this is actually what we do each year after picking blueberries.
The only thing you need to do to freeze blueberries is to place them in freezer-safe storage bags or containers, then simply put them in the freezer. It’s that easy!
Just before using them, rinse and clean them. Many times they can be used in a recipe from the frozen state, but you can also rinse them off and it will quickly defrost them too.
We like to be sure to use these within a year of freezing. I’m just now finishing up our batch of frozen berries from last year and they are still just as good!
How do you make these blueberry recipes gluten-free?
I am sharing recipes that are already written gluten-free; however, in most instances, you will simply need a swap of flour.
Instead of using an all-purpose flour that is gluten-filled, use a gluten-free all-purpose flour.
We use Better Batter; however, any 1:1 gluten-free all-purpose flour will do.
Other than that, these blueberry recipes will already be written gluten-free. It’s important though to always check ingredients since labels can change without warning.
