Quick And Healthy Blueberry Hazelnut Muffins

BY Cat Rooney TIMEAugust 20, 2014 PRINT

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.
