Spiced Flax Blueberry Muffins (Gluten Free, Dairy Free)

Total Time
Prep 10 mins

Sweet, flavourful and - most important - tender and moist: in my humble opinion the best gluten free muffins out there! The streusel topping is great but not necessary. Yield: 2.5 - 3 dozen muffins

Directions are very confusing when it comes to using flours when you are new to this. Why not just write what flours to use instead of saying use 4 cups rice flour?<br/>However, the muffins are tasty and moist compared to others I've tried.<br/>they are not much to look at. I will try this recipe again and I will shape the batter better next time.
