Blueberry Muffins

IMG_5086  When I first made these muffins I couldn’t believe how amazing they were!  There are so many healthy ingredients, and they’re fluffy, light, and very tasty.  Also, the recipe can stand up to a lot of change, so you can easily create your own variations.  The original recipe is from Simply Sugar and Gluten Free.  Amy’s recipes got me started on gluten-free and sugar-free baking, and she’s got a great collection of recipes!

I’ve made some changes to the original recipe to adopt the ingredients I usually use in baking, like using coconut oil and honey, and have also added flaxseed for some extra fiber.
