Gluten-free Blueberry Chia Muffins

20130224_101748Put this little recipe together this morning when I woke craving a muffin, kinda random but I take it as a challenge, plus, I bought a container of Organic Blueberries this weekend that were super tasty and would be perfect addition to a muffin recipe.  I like the challenge of using what I’ve got kicking around to create new recipes and I also have some Almond pulp/grinds left over from making almond milk (a recipe I will also post) to use.  You can sub in fresh ground almonds if you like, in fact, the muffin will probably taste even better, fine grind though!  I used a frozen banana in this recipe but you could sub in sweet potato puree or apple sauce if you have that instead.  I’m going to make these next time with fresh cranberries and orange next time. Have fun, and enjoy!
