2 large-sized eggs
2 cups of gluten-free all-purpose flour
2 cups of blueberries (fresh or frozen)
3/4 cup of granulated sugar (or 1 teaspoon of stevia powder extract)
1/2 cup of softened butter
1/2 cup of full-fat milk (or low-fat or fat-free, if you like)
2 teaspoons of baking powder
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon of sea salt
-Get your oven preheated to 350°F — that’s equivalent to about 175°C.
-Reach for a 15-cupcake muffin tin and lightly grease. If you want, you may simply line each with paper liner. Set aside as you make the batter.
-Grab a large mixing bowl and whisk together gluten-free all-purpose flour and baking powder.
-In the meantime, get your hands on another large mixing bowl. Using a hand mixer, combine softened butter and granulated sugar or 1 teaspoon of stevia powder extract — yes, that’s how sweet stevia powder extract is! Once mixed very well, add the eggs and continue beating until thoroughly combined.
-Add into this bowl the flour mixture you prepared earlier. Do it little by little, with your hand mixer continuously running at low speed.
-Once thick, add your vanilla extract and give it a good stir.
-Fold in your blueberries. If fresh blueberries are not available, use frozen ones by all means. By the way, there is no need to thaw frozen blueberries beforehand — they can go straight from the freezer to the mixing bowl!
-Place the batter into the muffin tin, filling each one up to 2/3 of its capacity only.
-Stash the muffin tin in the oven and bake for about 25 minutes or until cooked. You can tell that your homemade gluten-free blueberry muffins are already cooked if the toothpick you insert in the center of one of them comes out clean.
-Transfer the muffin tin to a wire rack. Allow the gluten-free blueberry muffins to cool completely. Serve.
