If you are looking for an easy grab and go breakfast, these gluten free blackberry breakfast muffins are a great choice to try.
If you are like me, I am always trying to make a “treat” healthy enough that my kids can eat enjoy it for breakfast. Breakfast is so much more fun when it looks like a forbidden dessert. Add their favorite fruit, blackberries, and I think these muffins will be a hit.
Believe it or not, this gluten free blackberry muffin recipe is very similar in taste and texture to a “lighter” bran muffin.
I am going to be totally honest with you and tell you this flavor was completely unexpected.
(I couldn’t resist taking a bite during the photo shoot…sorry! It is hard to resist a blackberry!)
These gluten free blackberry muffins are just that good.
If you look at the texture in this muffin, you will see it is still light and fluffy, even with the added healthy ingredients!

You will notice I used large bakery muffin papers for these muffins. I found these in Michael’s and I wanted to experiment with them a bit. This recipe makes 6 of these large muffins, or 12 regular sized muffins. If you are going to freeze some, I recommend making regular sized muffins.
