I love bread – any kind of bread. I cannot imagine life without bread. It would be sad. Muffins are one of my favorite forms of bread because they don’t take as long to bake and they are already in individualized servings. My go-to muffins are blueberry and cornbread. LOVE them both so much, I could eat them all day. BAD! BAD! BAD! My hips would not appreciate that. With winter over and spring bouncing from hot to cold I decided to combine the best of both worlds – wintry cornbread and summery blueberry – for these gluten – free blueberry cornbread muffins.
These gluten-free Blueberry Cornbread Muffins have the perfect blend of coarse rich cornmeal and burst of sweet berry that I was craving. Easy to mix together, make them for dinner or wrap them up well and freeze for another day. I definitely need to double my batch. I paired them with a hearty ham and lentil soup. Since I have so many friends who cannot have gluten, I am always happy to have a new recipe to add a taste of yummy-ness to their day.
