Gluten Free Lemon Blueberry Muffins make the perfect pairing with a cup of coffee on a Spring morning. Not to mention its stellar nutritional profile, low in sugar and full of healthy fats from almond flour.
Anyone else feeling like Spring will never come?
Over here in Michigan we spring forward our clocks this weekend and I couldn’t be more excited!
Well not for the loss of sleep but because we are one step closer to S-P-R-I-N-G!
I have been craving all things lemon lately and these gluten free lemon blueberry muffins TAKE THE CAKE!
They are made with almond flour which for some of you, might be a new ingredient.
So lets just break it down in terms of health for a sec…
- Low in LDL ( aka the fat that forms cholesterol that has been linked to atherosclerosis and heart disease)
- High in Vitamin E ( Antioxidant ! Helps repair cells aka keeps skin looking younger)
- High in Monounsaturated fat ( helps to reduce inflammation, muscle soreness and arthritis )
- Keeps you fuller for longer ( our bodies take longer to digest fat so these muffins will help keep that hunger at bay)
I personally love the mouth texture/feel of almond flour and don’t even get me started on how moist they are. Hope you enjoy these gluten free lemon blueberry muffins !Print
