I have been on a healthier eating plan lately. Not a ‘diet’, but eating better. Typically, I eat healthily, but with my boys being home for the summer and being so busy, I have not been making the best nutritional decisions.

However, I haven’t gained weight but was increasing my running mileage because I signed up for another half marathon. As a result, I couldn’t understand why I wasn’t getting stronger. But, I took a look at my diet and realized I was filling my body with high-fat, high-sugar, and processed foods.

I started with easy-to-prepare small snacks and meals. (Follow me on Instagram for those quick meals.) I really don’t have time to prepare two different meals for myself and the family.

Back in the fall, I did some recipes with Bob’s Red Mill and they sent me Almond Flour and Gluten Free Flour. I’ve been experimenting with those healthier flours. Gluten in self-rising and all-purpose flours is what binds, or holds, the recipe together. When using Almond or Gluten Free flours you typically have to add a binder, such as eggs.

Purely subbing in gluten-free flour doesn’t always work. Because gluten is a structural protein, the products are often very tender and even crumbly if you just replace the flour that’s called for in the recipe with gluten-free flour. However, in some baked products such as muffins or cookies, you can make that simple substitution. When you’re making muffins or cookies, even with wheat flour, you don’t want to overwork the batter or dough because overworking results in too much gluten production and a tough product. Source

  1. I first tried almond flour in these Healthiest Blueberry Muffins. Although they were good, I don’t like the mouth-feel of almond flour in most recipes. It’s not as ‘luscious’ and smooth. Gluten-free flour made them more like traditional muffins.
  2. You can use fresh or frozen blueberries in this recipe.
  3. I use cupcake liners when making muffins. First, because I don’t like to clean the pan. Secondly, these muffins don’t hold together as well as traditional muffins and they tend to break apart when removing them without the liners.

  1. This batter is Way to dry
    Did I miss something states Butter but no butter in recipe

    1. In step 4 ‘butter’ should be coconut oil. Coconut oil is listed in ingredients. My batter wasn’t dry, but gluten-free baked goods are more crumbly than traditional

  2. Recipe looks good. I will use regular flour, as no gluten problems. They say, not to go gluten free if not diagnosed.. Thank you for recipe.
