I had heard the brand Cup4cup Gluten Free Wholesome Flour Blend was good, but I thought it was a little pricey. I came across it at Stop and Shop though, and figured I would give it a try in my Best Blueberry Muffin recipe. I was not disappointed!
These muffins really are the best because they are loaded with blueberry flavor! Last year I became obsessed with The Great British Bake-Off on PBS for two reasons. Number 1: I love baking and number 2: because I love all things British! Well, I noticed that they were always making jam (with no recipe, by the way, just berries and sugar). Since gluten free baking can often come out dry in texture, I got the idea that adding a blueberry jam to these muffins would not only add flavor but moisture too!
The Cup4cup Gluten Free Wholesome Flour Blend was also a winner, as these came out with the taste and texture of a whole wheat muffin, plus this flour is a healthy GFree alternative as it has a lot of fiber in it, since it is whole grain and contains ground flaxseeds.
Acorn squash in my oatmeal? Yup, that sweet nutty flavor is warming and delicious in oatmeal and a great way to add loads of nutrients into your breakfast to start your day!
Acorn squash contains powerful antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties! It’s also packed with fiber, Vitamin C as well as magnesium and potassium. It helps regulate your blood sugar which helps keep the weight off and conquers those cravings! Winter squash has also been shown to have clear potential in the prevention and treatment of cancer.
My kids loved this hearty, filling breakfast. I may not have mentioned it was made of squash until after their plates were cleaned empty! They’re getting there…
