Gluten-Free Blueberry Muffins
Did you know that you can bake gluten-free blueberry muffins with fresh or frozen blueberries? I prefer to freeze fresh blueberries because I feel like frozen blueberries hold shape better when baking when they're frozen.
Every year we pick loads of blueberries from our backyard. I planted six plants a few years back, and every year since we've gotten enough blueberries that we haven't purchased any from the stores.
We pick an average of two cups a day during the summer. For a family of four, that's more than plenty. We enjoy half fresh, then freeze the rest for smoothies and baking treats - like Gluten-Fee Blueberry Muffins.
Can I freeze gluten-free blueberry muffins?
Yes, you can freeze gluten-free blueberry muffins. Make sure to wait until they come to room temperature before you place them in an airtight container in the freezer. I find gluten-free muffins to last about 4 days in an airtight container, assuming they aren't devoured sooner.
Gluten-free Blueberry Muffins are one of our favorite gluten-free muffins and they have been a breakfast choice for us for years.
