Muffins are cupcakes’ frosting-less cousins, and most of them are, sadly, off-limits for the gluten-intolerant. Here, 11 fantastic gluten-free muffins that let anyone eat cake for breakfast.

1. Gluten-Free Cocoa and Banana-Hazelnut Muffins 
These gluten-free muffins have an irresistibly light and crunchy top, with a wonderfully dense and decadent crumb from the ripe bananas, cocoa powder and ground hazelnuts.

2. Apple Snickerdoodle Muffins 
Brown sugar and cinnamon get swirled through these light, apple-filled muffins.

3. Muesli Crunch Whole-Grain Muffins 
These not-too-sweet breakfast muffins are lightly spiced with cinnamon.

4. Corn-Blueberry Swirl Muffins
Fresh blueberries are cooked down to a compote and swirled into sweet corn muffins.

5. Vegan Banana-Walnut Muffins 
These simple vegan muffins are moist, with irresistibly crispy edges.

6. Gluten-Free Brown Sugar Monkey Bread Muffins
Silvana Nardone rolls pieces of her fantastic gluten-free bread dough in melted butter and cinnamon-sugar to make pull-apart monkey bread.

7. Gluten-Free Apple-Spice Muffins 
Applesauce is a wonderful secret ingredient for gluten-free baked goods. You can use store-bought sauce or make your own by pureeing chopped apples with a little bit of water and a squeeze of lime or lemon juice.

8. Carrot-Flax Muffins 
These muffins are packed with nutrients from carrots, apples and homemade flax seed meal.

9. Banana-Walnut Coffee Cake Muffin Tops 
A hit of espresso powder makes these banana muffins taste slightly grown-up.

10. Blueberry-Lemon Coconut Muffins 
Crumbly and gluten-free, these muffins are the perfect balance of sweet and tart.

11. Gluten-Free Flax Seed Muffins 
These healthy muffins are made with homemade flax seed meal, gluten-free flour and apple puree.
