Hi everyone, I was dying to try out my new heart-shaped muffin cases, and thought, what better recipe than traditional blueberry muffins! And by traditional I mean, of course, without the gluten, eggs..and in this recipe, the butter!
These muffins are bursting with blueberries and taste delicious. I used coconut oil which gives the muffins a nice coconut-y taste, however the mixture can get a bit stiff when the coconut oil starts to harden. You could use butter or another vegetable oil if you didn’t want to use the coconut oil. Enjoy!
Yields 8 heart muffins/regular muffins
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 tbs ground flaxseed + 3 tbs water
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup my gluten free flour (recipe here)
- 1/4 cup milk of choice (almond, soy, dairy)
- 1 1/4 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
- 1/2 tablespoon sugar, mixed with
- 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
Heat oven to 375° or 190 degrees celsius.

With spoon, fold in half of flour then half of milk into batter; repeat.
