Excellent Blueberry Muffins

Over the weekend, I tried Whole Foods Gluten Free bakehouse blueberry muffins (in the freezer at my store) and they were great! Would have never known the difference from regular ones!

[Thanks for sharing the recipe.

At the moment, I need to be satisfied with buying them ready made (no time to bake) and the price wasnt' horrible at my store - $5 for 4 muffins.

What state are you in? Here in California, they really are $8 for four and usually hard as rocks (they're not in the freezer section).....I refuse! Good to know they're good if one's in a pinch, but I am excited about the recipe from Betty :rolleyes:

Betty--those look delicious! I'm going to try your flour mix--I will just substitute potato starch for the tapioca--can't tolerate tapioca! I've been using the GFP Muffin and Scone Mix--very good, but a little expensive, and I'd rather have something on hand to use anyway. Thankx :D Oh--what brands of flour do you use--I normally use Ener-g, but am open to trying something different.

Ughh. I was at Whole Foods yesterday and really wanted to try their cranberry orange scones. They had 3 packages out, all marked as "sell by 4/27" and they ALL had mold on the bottom. When I asked if they had more in the freezer, I was told that everything they had was out on the shelf. I was looking for a breakfast treat, but they didn't even have the muffins. Grrr... this was the Whole Foods in Philly, I would have expected that they would have been better stocked!

Yea Lauren--I would have, too. I go to the one in Marlton, NJ and they always have more stuff in the freezers both in the back, and in the take-out food area. Sorry you couldn't get a treat for breakfast :(

patti, the white rice I use is bobs red mill..the brown rice is arrowhead mills.

I almost always substitute oil/butter for applesause, yes, it helps with the fat and calories [hubbys on a diet] but it does seem to make the recipes more moist, besides none of use needs all that oil, its not healthy

I keep a big bag of the mix made up in the fridge, it makes it so quick to throw 6 muffins in the oven...next time I'm making 12, my 19 year old son polished off 3 in 2 minutes :huh:

the blueberry muffins at my whole foods are not in the freezer section, but the gluten-free bakery section and man are they good. so good. I love the little sugar sprinkles on top. love em. a great treat if you can find em. I cant always find em but when i do, i feel like i've won the lottery.

Aww, thanks Patti - where is Marlton? I go to school in Philly, so it's easy for me to swing by the Whole Foods on 20th and Callowhill. Usually they have a better selection - maybe it was because I was there on a Sunday? I really wanted to try those scones, or maybe the Morning Glory Muffins. The muffins are listed on their flyer, but I've never seen them available. Anyone tried them?
