Healthy blueberry cinnamon muffins make a delicious snack, dessert or even a quick breakfast! Juicy blueberries are folded through an almond meal and buckwheat batter spiked with loads of cinnamon. Gluten free and dairy free.
My third recipe for Pureharvest* is now live on their website and it’s a beauty! A nice fluffy, freshly baked muffin is a classic treat that’s hard to refuse… and these healthy blueberry cinnamon muffins really hit the spot. Juicy sweet blueberries and cinnamon are an amazing combination!
I know muffins can often be a slice of sugary cake in disguise, but trust me I’ve punched as many nutritious elements into these muffins as possible. High fibre, gluten free almond meal and buckwheat flour. Flaxseed and eggs for healthy fats and protein. And Pureharvest’s Coco Quench (coconut-rice milk) and Rice Malt Syrup for moisture and just enough sweetness, without being a sugar overload. The blueberries and cinnamon add further natural sweetness, too.
As the weather turns slightly cooler here in Sydney and we start to embrace autumn, there’s a natural pull toward jumping into the kitchen and turning on the oven. I love the methodical nature of baking – weighing out my flours (yep I weigh stuff, it ensures better results), chopping up the nuts, whisking the eggs. Getting it all organised and then quickly mixing it together, scooping it into the baking tray and voila! Time to sit back and let those yummy baking smells waft through the house.
Whether it’s cool weather where you are or not, you need to get these healthy blueberry cinnamon muffins on your baking agenda! The base of this recipe is quite flexible, and if you don’t have frozen blueberries on hand you could try:
- or even some chopped plums, apple or pear.
I like to go a bit overboard with covering the tops of the muffins with walnuts too. The crunchy crumble topping adds an extra delicious dimension!
