Paleo Blueberry Muffins and Snowmobiling
What do Paleo Blueberry Muffins have to do with snowmobiling?
There are three things I think about when someone says Maine; blueberries, Cold River Gin and snowmobiling because that’s the reason I have spent the most time there. Truth be told, there are lot’s of other awesome things in, and from, Maine- hello lobster!
Since I’m in the truck for 4 hours with the kids as Matt drives us all home from the last snowmobile trip of the season (sad face), I thought I’d post the recipe for my mother’s awesome grain free, gluten free blueberry muffins.
My mother is an amazing cook and my first mentor in the kitchen. Her paleo muffins do not disappoint, the only downside is that it’s hard to eat just one. I hope you try this recipe and I hope you love it as much as I do.
These muffins keep best in the refrigerator and will hold for a week (longer in the freezer). They are delicious sliced in half and warmed in the toaster oven.
Another great healthy muffin recipe (gluten free but not Paleo or grain free) is Banana Bread Protein Muffins
