Gluten-free, egg-free / eggless Heart- shaped Blueberry Muffins

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!
