Gluten-Free Blueberry Corn MuffinsThis crowd-pleasing recipe was developed by Susan Baldassano, Director of Education at the Natural Gourmet Institute for Health and Culinary Arts in New York City. For moist, tender muffins, use finely ground yellow cornmeal, such as that made by Arrowhead Mills. You can replace the blueberries with an equal amount of cranberries and increase the sugar to 2 tablespoons, or replace the blueberries with 3/4 cup of raspberries.These muffins are delicious on their own, or try them warm with butter and jam. Cooled muffins can be wrapped in plastic and stored at room temperature for up to three days or frozen for up to three weeks. Thaw and reheat muffins in 350°F oven or microwave (unlike those made with wheat, gluten-free baked goods won't get tough in the microwave).

  • Maple Syrup in Muffins ?

    I've never heard of using Maple Syrup in muffins
  • Gluten-Free Blueberry Corn Muffins

    Love finding gluten-free recipes and this sounds delicious. However, I don't find it convenient to keep both tapioca AND rice flour both at the same time in my pantry. Probably use all rice and substitute another syrup for pure maple syrup(although I do love it and may splurge there.) 44 degrees seems awfully hot, but will watch and see. Other then that, I think I will try it. Sounds Yummy.
