Gluten-free Blueberry Muffins….wild Maine blueberries at their best!

01 Sep

Good morning!! It’s a beautiful clear, crisp September morning and fresh blueberry muffins are on their way. I just went for a short paddle on the pond. The mist was rising over the warm water, the birds were chirping, the loon was diving for breakfast and the sun was peaking through the tree tops. This is my favorite time of year, when the air begins to cool and dry out. I love Fall!!!

I’m using up the last of the wild Maine blueberries in my refrigerator for a batch of muffins. We are heading to Belfast, Maine later today to meet up with my sister and her husband. They recently purchased an RV (a.k.a. motor home) and are camping on the coast. We decided to stay in a hotel instead of the cushion on top of their kitchen table…my aching back!

These muffins will be the perfect breakfast tomorrow morning as we sip coffee overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, watching the sun rise. I hope you are having a wonderful, long weekend…take some time to relax or do something fun…life is too short! Bon appetit!

P.S. I like to use my special “muffin-top” pan, but a regular muffin tin will work great, too.

Blueberry Muffins

2¾ cups Pamela’s Gluten-free Wheat-free Baking & Pancake Mix
2/3 cup sugar
1 stick butter(room temperature)
1 cup vanilla yogurt (room temperature)
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1½ cups fresh blueberries (or thawed, drained frozen berries)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease 2 muffin pans. Combine Pamela’s mix and sugar in a large bowl. Cut in butter until it resembles fine crumbs. Combine yogurt, eggs and vanilla in a small bowl and pour all at once into flour mixture. Stir until just moistened. Gently fold in blueberries. Fill muffin cups two-thirds full and bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans immediately. Makes 12-18 muffins.

    I too love this time of year. We have been having some terrible weather, lots of rain and wind which has ruined many crops. But the arrival of September generally brings some lovely weather – today the sun is shining and it’s very balmy. The muffins sound lovely, enjoy your trip to Belfast.
