My kids love grabbing muffins as part of their breakfast. I don't always have time to bake my gluten free muffins from scratch, so as my son would say...make a few batches and freeze them! You can easily thaw these muffins or pop them into the microwave when you need a muffin fix!
How do you freeze muffins?
To freeze these muffins, place cooled muffins into a freezer bag. Keep the muffin liners on the muffins and then seal the bag and freeze them.
How long will these muffins keep in the freezer?
These muffins will keep up to 3 months in a freezer...but if your family is like mine, there is no way they will be there that long :-).

Can you use frozen blueberries?
You can easily use frozen blueberries. I recommend using them frozen because using thawed berries in baking makes extra liquid which can make your baking turn out soggy.

Are you ready to give this easy blueberry muffin recipe a try? Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
Add your dry ingredients to a large bowl and whisk to blend. In a smaller bowl, add your wet ingredients. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and add the blueberries.
TIP: the secret to light and fluffy muffins is to mix until the batter is "just barely mixed". If you overmix your muffin batter, it takes the air out and your muffins turn out denser.
Add your muffin mix to a muffin pan. I like to line mine with parchment paper muffin liners. These are non-stick and work so much better than plain paper ones.
Bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees F. Remove from the oven and allow cooling on a cooling rack.
How do you know when the muffins are done?
Your muffins can be tested by inserting a toothpick into the middle. If the toothpick comes back clean, the muffins are done baking. If you see crumbs or batter on the toothpick, they need to bake a little longer.
