Blueberry Millet Muffins

Blueberry Millet Muffins {Beard and Bonnet} #glutenfree

I am a softie for a good muffin! There really aren’t many breakfast foods that I like better. They are easy to make, fast to cook, and completely portable. My kids love them too, because besides the fact that they are delicious they are the breakfast equivalent of a cupcake.

This time of year I especially crave muffins that are overflowing with fruit like these blueberry millet muffins! The millet in these muffins add a pleasant little crunch to each bite and the zing from fresh squeezed orange juice and zest just can’t be beat.

Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 cups ATK gluten free all-purpose flour blend, or other gluten free all- purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup raw millet
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup whole milk yogurt

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400° F with the rack in the upper third of the oven. Grease muffin pans with butter or line muffin tins with paper liners.
  2. In a large mixing bowl whisk together the gluten free all-purpose flour, millet, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
  3. In a separate bowl combine the yogurt, eggs, butter, coconut sugar, orange juice, and zest, whisking well until the mixture is smooth.
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until everything is incorporated. Add the blueberries and gently fold into the batter until just incorporated. The batter will be thick.
  5. Divide the batter among the muffin cups, filling each one to just slightly below the rim.
  6. Bake for 15 minutes or until the muffin tops are slightly browned and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool in the pan for a few minutes then turn the muffins out of the pan to cool completely on a wire rack.

    We’re not gluten-free so I don’t have any gluten-free flour mix. Can I use the same quantity of whole wheat pastry flour?

      You can try substituting regular all-purpose flour or whole wheat flour as a cup for cup replacement. It should work, but I haven’t tried it before.
