No need to haul out your stand mixer or hand mixer – you can combine these muffin ingredients by hand! Well, I suggest one large mixing bowl and a large spoon, just to keep things nice and tidy. 😉

I used gluten-free flour, (here’s what I used) but you can swap it out for your favorite all-purpose flour if you don’t need the gluten-free option. My recipe also calls for a non-refined sugar alternative (here’s what I used) but no adjustment of the recipe is needed if you want to use your favorite refined sugar instead. I also used a non-refined confectioners sugar alternative for the glaze.

And finally, fresh blueberries are always preferable, but if you don’t have them on hand, or they’re not in season, frozen blueberries will work just fine. In fact, that’s what I used here.

This recipe will make 9-12 muffins, depending on how full you fill each muffin cup. I got 10 out of this batch because I filled the cups almost completely full. I like to use unbleached muffin liners (like these) so that clean up is easy.

So, no excuses – go forth and make these yummy blueberry lemon muffins now. Don’t forget the tangy lemon glaze, which is quite possibly, my favorite part.  These are truly scrumptious (name that movie!) when consumed warm. I mean, just look at those warm berries nestled in the lemony muffin below. Ah…

If you have leftovers the next day, just pop a muffin in the microwave to re-heat for 10-20 seconds or so. You can even split one open and warm it in your toaster oven with a pat of butter on each section. Enjoy!

Blueberry Lemon Muffins with Lemon Glaze (Gluten-Free)
Author:
Serves: 9-12 muffins
Ingredients
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • ½ cup Swerve sugar replacement (or regular refined sugar)
  • Finely grated zest from 1 lemon
  • ¾ cup plain unsweetened yogurt or sour cream
  • 1 large egg
  • 1½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1½ cups gluten-free Bob’s Red Mill 1-to-1-flour (or all-purpose flour)
  • 1¼ cups blueberries, fresh or frozen
  • ¼ cup almond milk (or regular milk)
  • For the Glaze
  • ½ cup Swerve powdered sugar replacement (or regular powdered sugar)
  • Fresh lemon juice from 1 lemon
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.

  2. Line muffin tins with paper liners. I like these unbleached liners.

  3. Melt butter in microwave or on stove. Pour in large mixing bowl; set aside and let cool before proceeding with next step.

  4. Add sugar, ½ of the lemon zest (reserve the rest for garnish), yogurt, and egg to the melted butter. Whisk until smooth.

  5. Add baking powder, baking soda and salt; stir until combined.

  6. Lightly fold in flour and blueberries.

  7. Add almond milk and lightly combine. Batter will be very thick.

  8. Spoon/scoop batter into muffins tins.

  9. Bake for 25-30 minutes until tops are lightly browned and/or knife inserted in center of muffin comes out clean.

  10. Remove muffins from oven and from muffin tin and let cool on rack for 10 minutes.

  11. Make the glaze:

  12. In a small bowl, incrementally add lemon juice to the powdered sugar and whisk until it reaches your desired consistency. I like my glaze thick, so I use less lemon juice. If you like yours thin and pourable, use more lemon juice.

  13. When desired consistency is achieved, lightly drizzle glaze over the top of each muffin.

  14. Top each muffin with a sprinkle of reserved lemon zest.

Gluten Free Yogurt Cake Pan Pancakes

Gluten Free Yogurt Cake Pan Pancakes

Have you ever wanted pancakes but were too lazy to spend the time pouring drippy batter over a hot griddle? Add to that, the time-consuming flipping of just two or three pancakes at a time to build up enough of a stack to feed more than one person? Me, too.  So I wondered what would happen if I mixed the pancake batter and then poured it into a cake pan and baked it. Would I get one big pancake that actually tasted like a pancake with a pancake-like texture? The answer is yes! May I present: Gluten Free Yogurt Cake Pan Pancakes.

I wanted gluten-free pancakes with some organic yogurt mixed in for a fluffier texture. Here’s how I did it:

My go-to gluten-free pancake mix is Pamela’s Baking and Pancake Mix. To that  I added two organic eggs, almond milk, organic plain yogurt, a little melted coconut oil, and a dash of cinnamon and a dash of salt. Specific measurements are in the recipe at the bottom of the post.

I just mixed the ingredients in a bowl and then poured the batter in a cake pan greased with coconut oil. I baked it for 30-35 minutes at 350°. I let it cool for 5 minutes before removing from the cake pan.

Once removed, I cut it into wedges, stacked a few, buttered them and garnished with strawberries and blueberries.

And of course, poured some warm organic maple syrup over the whole thing.

Cake pan pancakes are a wonderful alternative to the griddle cakes method. Give it a try and let me know how you like it!

Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Grease a cake pan (8" or 9") with coconut oil. Set aside.

  2. BATTER INSTRUCTIONS:
  3. In a microwave-safe small bowl, melt 2 tablespoons of coconut oil. Set aside.

  4. In a large mixing bowl, break and lightly scramble 2 eggs. To the eggs, add pancake mix and almond milk. Stir to combine.

  5. Add in Greek yogurt, and a dash of salt and a few dashes of ground cinnamon. Stir to combine.

  6. Pour in melted coconut oil and stir to combine.

  7. Pour batter into greased cake pan. Bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes. Pancake should be golden on top with sides just pulling away from pan. Test center with a knife. If using an 8" cake pan, you may need a little longer in the oven to achieve a cooked center.

  8. When done, remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes before removing from cake pan.

  9. Cut and serve in stacked wedges. Garnish with butter, maple syrup and fruit.

Spinach, Tomato And Feta Cheese Frittata For One

For breakfast, lunch, or dinner, this spinach, tomato and feta cheese frittata for one is healthy and easy to put together.

Spinach, Tomato And Feta Cheese Frittata For One

Butter a small baking dish; making sure to butter all the way up the sides, too. (You don’t want the egg mixture to stick as it rises.) I use Le Creuset’s 7 x 5 rectangular baking dish which is just perfect for a one person frittata.

Add in spinach, tomato and feta cheese.

In a separate bowl, scramble the eggs. I used three medium-sized eggs. Two extra large would probably be fine, as well. Add in the half and half or milk and mix well. Season the mixture with salt and pepper. I also added a dash of onion and garlic powder, but that’s totally optional.

Pour the egg mixture carefully over the veggies and cheese.

Place in a pre-heated 350° oven, uncovered, and bake for 30 minutes, or until top begins to brown. Check that eggs are fully cooked by inserting a knife in the center of the frittata. If it comes out clean, it’s done. If not, cook for an additional 5-7 minutes.

Remove from oven, let cool for a few minutes before attempting to cut and remove a piece.
