Do you ever feel the need to bake? I do! I, honestly, love to bake. It soothes my soul. I feel, as though, I never have any time for it these days. And let’s be honest, or the energy. This past Sunday, I woke up and needed muffins in my life- Gluten Free Blueberry Avocado Muffins to be exact.
I found a recipe online from Gimme Some Oven and adapted it to fit my dietary restrictions. The muffins came out delicious even with switching the ingredients. The batter seemed very dry but they baked up nicely. They were best warm out of the oven but tasted great the next day. I do find with gluten free baking, that most of the products need to be refrigerated to extend the shelf life. Don’t ask me why but it’s what I’ve found to keep them longer. Enjoy your muffin heaven!
