Delicious gluten free snacks
Everyone has heard of gluten free food these days. People are becoming more and more aware of gluten intolerance and that's a very good thing as gluten intolerance can cause fatigue, illness and allergies that go undiagnosed.

Being gluten intolerant myself, I know life can feel pretty frustrating at times. No, I can't eat that delicious piece of birthday cake a colleague offers me, or eat a quick plate of pasta at lunch. I always have to take time to prepare my meals and if I'm eating out make sure to ask if the sauces have gluten in them.

I think what I've missed the most is muffins. Delicious mouth watering blueberry muffins are something I always indulged in before I was diagnosed with gluten intolerance.

I've come up with a gluten free recipe for almond blueberry muffins that are so divine and easy to make that even if you aren't gluten free you'll want to make these.

You need to start with almond flour which you can find at your local grocery store or natural foods store. I buy a large bag of almond flour at About Life in Rozelle. Almond flour is a healthy substitute for wheat flour; using almond flour is like eating whole almonds which are good for lowering cholesterol.

Ingredients for the best gluten free muffins ever

Ingredients: (makes 6 large muffins)

Preheat the oven to 190C (375F)

2 1/2 cups almond meal
1/2 cup of frozen blueberries
1/4 cup natural yogurt
1/2 cup honey (to taste, I use less because I don't like it too sweet)
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon of salt
3 eggs

Method

1. Grease muffin tins with stick of butter.

2. Place the almond meal in a bowl.

3. Mix in the eggs and honey stirring thoroughly.

4. Add the yogurt, baking soda and salt to bring to a muffin batter consistency. (Can mix by hand or with a blender)

5. Stir in the frozen blueberries until they are coated with the batter.

6. Spoon the batter into the muffin tins filling it to the top.

7. Bake at 190 C (375 F) for about 15-20 minutes or until muffins spring back when pressed.

8. Let cool before taking out of muffin tin. Store in an airtight container to enjoy for breakfast or a snack for 2-3 days.

Thanks for that lovely recipe Amy Im going to substitute the blueberries with the mulberries off my tree.
What i do every year when the tree is loaded (like now) I pick as much as I can then cook it up with sugar for a few hours till think and syrupy then I strain, bottle and refridgerate This think syrup juice is used like a cordial. My grandson just loves it ...most members of our family get a bottle every year.

Sjwic - I was chatting to a Naturopath last night as I have to take my little one off dairy and she suggested a yoghurt that is made from coconuts (brand name coyo) so you could use that instead of the yoghurt as it should give the same consistency with an added hint of coconut - planning on trying it myself this weekend.
