Gluten-Free Fruit Burst Muffins

This morning, we woke up craving fruit-filled muffins.  It was just one of those days
that called for a side step out of the ordinary. Maybe it was the arrival of February – a new month, 
a new breakfast…maybe it was the rainy, snowy, slushy weather? Who knows.  My hubby and I wanted muffins, Aiden didn’t contest. Oh and by ordinary, I mean delicious variations of pancakes  that my husband has mastered the art of creating (I’m a lucky lady). Amazing pancakes aside, we felt like eating muffins and I was on a mission to make one tasty batch…
  • Apples
  • Blueberries
  • Raspberries
  • Strawberries
  • Blackberries
Check, check, check, check, and check!  Let’s do it!
Muffins bursting with fruits is my kind of muffin. Healthy, scrumptious, and totally satisfying
If you’re in the mood for muffins too, you’ll love this easy-peasy recipe and this hearty one, that
uses seasonal vegetables.
Happy mid-week!  p.s in case you missed it, The Best of this Life took home 3rd place here!

    Burst is right. The hearty grain flour paired with the juicy fruit does make for an amazing treat! I do not think I could even restrict these to breakfast. Delicious recipe, thanks for sharing.
