The Best Gluten Free Muffins

Disclaimer

Blueberry muffins have to be the best muffin out there, at least I think so. When I turned 50 a couple weeks ago I decided I needed to really start trying to eat healthy, or at least make healthier choices. Blueberry muffins are one of my favorite breakfast foods, but that can’t possibly be healthy for me. Well, these are the best gluten free muffins I have ever made, and they are extremely healthy.

Get The Right Ingredients

Every morning I have started juicing, and loving it, but I miss that chew factor. I didn’t want to steer away from my healthy eating, so I was on a mission to create a healthy muffin, that actually tasted good. I decided to read the ingredients from a muffin that I love, and change it up with healthy ingredients.

Having The Right Tools

I received this Sweese porcelain muffin dish to test out, and wow, not only is it beautiful, but it bakes the muffins perfectly. I used my Wilton muffin papers for these muffins. But you don’t have to, you could butter this muffin dish up and cook the muffins right in the dish.

I remembered reading that you could use apple sauce in place of butter or oil for baked goods to make them healthy. Gluten free ingredients were a must for this recipe. I also didn’t want to use actual sugar either, and ended up only using brown sugar (though there is some in the picture). Eggs haven’t been my friend lately, so I decided to go with egg alternative, worked out great.
