Tasty Tuesday ~ Grain Free Muffins

March 07, 2017, by Carrie

Hello, friends! I'm excited today to be posting on The Blended Blog for Tasty Tuesdays. Yep, I'm like the rest of you I love food and I love to eat. Recently, I have discovered that many of the things I love to eat are not good for my digestive system. That rebellious gut just does not like grains or dairy anymore. What can I say? Welcome to life in my 50's. This was a little bit of a problem for me in the beginning because I love bread and anything that has a grain. Then one day as I was lamenting my fate I went to Pinterest to look for grain free recipes. My goodness! I found muffins! My world shifted. I've tried a few recipes and some were not successful but the one I'm sharing today is a fave of mine already. Coffee Crumb Muffins It all starts with these ingredients. I try to keep a good amount of organics on hand but if I don't have organic I'll use what I have in the pantry. IMG_4893 Mixing up the dry ingredients prior to adding the wet ones. IMG_4896 And oh no! I got so excited to pop them in the oven I missed taking more pictures. The recipe made these nine muffins. I've made the recipe enough now that I can make a batch and half or a double batch. Double batch seems the best bet because they are delicious! IMG_4897
