Gab's Gluten and Dairy-Free Blueberry Breakfast Muffins

And we’re back with another quick and easy breakfast recipe!

These muffins are gluten, dairy and refined-sugar free and  perfect for a quick and healthy on-the-go breakfast or a snack with your afternoon tea/coffee.

The mix of almond and buckwheat flour adds a subtle nutty flavor to the batter and makes it the ideal flour substitute for those that suffer from a gluten intolerance. And the secret ingredient...lemon zest! Which adds some extra tang to the flour mixture. So put your apron on and start cooking!
