Lemony Blueberry Corn Muffins

Here’s a simple, one-bowl recipe for corn muffins. These muffins are sweetened with Truvia for those looking for a break from agave nectar. They make a great breakfast muffin — with the bright note of lemon zest for added flavor. I used corn flour in this recipe instead of cornmeal, since it has a finer grain for a better overall texture.

Yield: 10-12 muffins

Gluten Free Blueberry Muffins:

1 1/2 cups Bob’s Red Mill corn flour (not cornmeal)

1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

zest of one lemon

1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen and unthawed blueberries


1. Preheat oven to 350.

2. Whisk together dry ingredients. Add milk, oil, vanilla, lemon zest and applesauce and whisk until incorporated. Fold in blueberries.
