I just made these and they are wonderful!! I added a few extra blueberries and shouldn't have, but they are the best gluten free baking I've done so far (not that I've done much yet). I never would be able to tell they are gf. Thanks so much for this recipe!

About

People with wheat-allergies no longer have to forego delicious treats like blueberry muffins. With many gluten-free flours on the market it's easy to make them from scratch. Xanthan gum is an important ingredient in gluten-free baking as it helps provide structure. Recipe courtesy of Driscoll's.
