Gluten Free Blueberry Cornmeal Oatmeal Crunch Muffins
Up here in Maine, we wait all year for the bounty of local maine blueberry season. We literally freeze them by the boat loads to stock up for winter so we can enjoy these delicious berries all season long. If your not familiar with these special berries, they are incredibly small and delicate yet so sweet and flavorful. My daughter especially likes to eat them in the morning on their own. I personally love them in smoothies, tarts, breads, salads and you guessed it muffins!
This muffin recipe is so quick, easy and will not disappoint! The sunflower seeds add this extra fabulous crunch and they are bursting with blueberry flavor. I particularly love them as a snack on the go or for breakfast and they are next level toasted in your toaster oven with a touch of cultured grass fed butter https://www.organicvalley.coop
or smear of almond or cashew butter https://onceagainnutbutter.com
