Grain free and gluten free blueberry almond muffins.

Probably our best healthy muffin recipe we’ve ever made in the history of the universe. These grain free and gluten free blueberry almond muffins are a must cook recipe! Everyone will love them! They’re fluffy, moist, light and just delicious. What more can you want in a muffin?! 

This amazing recipe is brought to you by Supabarn. They have everything you need to stock up your healthy kitchen! You will definitely enjoy getting lost in their health food section (they have EVERYTHING!). We love going back to Canberra to visit, stocking up on all our pantry supplies and filling a suitcase to bring back up to the Gold Coast (seriously… we do this!). 

Plus the frosting makes them all kinds of magic and super pretty! We think they’d be perfect for a healthy high tea. Or just snack time. Actually, they’d also be perfect for breakfast! Ok… they’re actually perfect for anytime you are hungry. Glad we sorted that out. 

We’ve been using less sweeteners like honey, maple and rice malt syrup. Mostly due to the high fructose levels and because we’ve been experimenting a lot with xylitol. We love it so much! And we can’t wait to share more recipes using this sweetener! It makes healthy baking super easy and bloody yum.
