5 Best Blackberry Recipes

September 11, 2011

Blackberries are a symbol of the late summer harvest. Often thought of as a weed and a noxious invader, blackberry vines can be quite the menace - but come August and September, those thoughts turn to sweet berry pies, jams and other delicious desserts! Here are 5 of my favorite blackberry recipes, all gluten free of course!

Vanilla Bourbon Blackberry Jam
Sweet, tangy and a little bit boozy, this jam is perfect for holiday baking.

Blackberry Brownies
Rich lucious blackberries and decadent chocolate make these brownies delicious; zucchini makes it healthy! Dairy free.

Lemon Blackberry Swirl Pound Cake
Lemon poundcake with a delicious blackberry swirl! Simply substitute gluten free flour for the all-purpose in this blend.

Blackberry Hazelnut Muffins
My all-time favorite! Be sure to substitute gluten free all-purpose flour in this recipe.

Blackberry Limeade
A refreshing summer quencher that can be enjoyed year round - great for the kids as is, or for a tasty spiked punch.
