GF/DF Blueberry Flax Muffins

Muffins seem to have two functions.There are the breakfast muffins and the sweet, cake like muffins that are really more of a treat. This recipe for Gluten and Dairy Free Blueberry Flax Muffins falls into the in later category although still full of super healthy ingredients, which means that these muffins have a moist texture and a full, sweet flavor. In addition to breakfast, try serving these muffins as a healthier dessert choice or as a side with coffee or tea. Perfect for your Mother's Day breakfast!

  3. Place flax meal and almond flour in a large mixing bowl. Whisk in the baking powder, nutmeg, cinnamon and salt. Add in the applesauce and honey. Fold in the blueberries.

  2. I added about 1 cup of almond milk and made pancakes. Very good! Nice to have an egg free breakfast option. We eat so many eggs that a little variety is nice.
