Quick And Healthy Blueberry Hazelnut Muffins

August 20, 2014 Updated: August 20, 2014

Blueberries are in season, and the sight of fresh blueberries makes me hanker for blueberry muffins for breakfast.

It’s a breeze to make blueberry muffins by using all- or multi-purpose gluten-free flour from blended flours offered by such companies as Pamela’s, Bob’s Red Mill, and King Arthur.

For this recipe, I used Pamela’s artisan flour blend, Bob’s Red Mill hazelnut flour, and, as a sweetener, a combination of Stevia In The Raw, which can be purchased online, and a small amount of white or brown sugar.
