Lemon Blueberry Muffins

Baking is an extremely new thing to me. Generally I stick to treats like macaroons or protein bars but I’ve become curious about the world of gluten free flours, so I’ve started experimenting. Last week I wrote about my almond flour experience and how happy I was to have found a gluten free flour that didn’t taste like cardboard. Well, I have another to add to the list – coconut flour.

When I tasted these muffins for the third time (it took me that long to get the recipe right) I was so pleased with the texture! I’ve been gluten free for awhile now but from what I remember gluten tasting like, these muffins are pretty darn close to the “real thing”.

  1. Hi Leanne,
    Thanks for all the great recipes, tips and insights. I’m just wondering the function if the arrowroot powder and how critical it is to the recipe if not available.
    Thanks,
    Kelly
