Gluten Free Blueberry Pancake Muffins

Yes! Another muffin recipe. I just can't help myself. I am a muffin girl. They are definitely my number one pick for breakfast. Their cakey goodness is just so sweetly satisfying. However, these gluten free muffins are special. They are actually a cross between a blueberry pancake and a muffin. Since pancakes and muffins are a no no for us gluten free people, this creation is extra special.

The blueberry pancake muffins have a little less sweetening. They are purposefully made this way (just like pancakes) so you can drizzle a little extra maple syrup over the top. I highly recommend serving them warm with the maple syrup. Using your fingers to pick up and bite into a thick but light and fluffy pancake is so fun. Just keep a napkin nearby for sticky fingers! The muffins would also be a great addition to your Easter brunch - enjoy.
