Fresh baked muffins made with real wholesome ingredients (like these apple cinnamon muffins) are comforting, filling, and delicious.
However, most of the mixes offered at the store are full of ingredients that I don’t care to eat. Have you ever strolled through your local grocery store, picked up a blob of Blue #2, corn syrup and sugar and thought “Hey, I should use these to make blueberry muffins!” Of course not, because unlike some manufacturers, you know that blueberry muffins should contain actual blueberries.
Fortunately, making up a batch with wholesome ingredients is super easy, and the final result is even better than the boxed stuff.
Easy Gluten-Free Blueberry Muffins
I know baking from scratch can seem a bit daunting sometimes, but I promise it only adds a few minutes, and I consider it worthwhile to know that the end result is both delicious and healthful.
These muffins are made with almond and arrowroot flour and sweetened with a little maple syrup. I like to use fresh blueberries when they’re in season, but frozen blueberries work just fine too.
We love these muffins served warm and slathered in butter – I hope your family does, too!
