Since being diagnosed with Celiac Disease a few years ago and adopting a strict gluten free diet it has been so hard to make baked goods taste… well… good. I used to LOVE to bake and that changed for me as I dived into GF baking. It always seemed to hard to not have whatever I was making turn out dense and just ok tasting. But after working through this recipe and seeing what others have done to keep them moist and fluffy, I have got it!
I am a huge blueberry connoisseur. Any time I come across foods, snacks, candies, etc that are blueberry flavored I just have to try it out. Since this pregnancy blueberry muffins have been a HUGE craving so I was excited when it turned out exactly how my brain and belly hoped it would.
One thing I have learned since dealing with multiple food allergies between my daughter and I is, don’t let the recipe turn you away. If you find a recipe that you like and it mostly fits your food allergies, then there is most likely a way to alter it a bit so fit what you can eat. I used to let recipes that I would find and looked good turn me away if there was something I couldn’t eat in it, but the more you play with ingredients you will figure out how to modify! Sometimes it will work and others it won’t but just TRY.
