Gluten free blueberry muffins

I tried a new recipe a few days ago for gluten free blueberry muffins. I have been having issues with my stomach and am currently having tests done to rule out gluten and other possible allergies that may be making my stomach mad! ha. I won’t lie, gluten free eating is not easy. My husband loves blueberry muffins so I decided to give a gluten free version a try.

The gluten free products are definitely more expensive but I have noticed after a couple weeks of cutting out about 85% gluten from my diet (sometimes I slip and don’t realize there is gluten in something) my stomach isn’t as bloated and upset.

The jury is still out whether or not I am sensitive to gluten. Time will tell I guess. I had gluten free oats on hand so I decided last minute to add them. These gluten free blueberry muffins were delicious and light. My stomach didn’t feel heavy and gross after eating them so that is a win in my book ;).

  1. These look yummy. I have been gluten-free since August. I was so sick before the doctor had me go gluten-free and I am feeling so much better now! I am dairy-free and soy free. Well, technically. The doctor said i could occasionally have cheese, lol!

    What flour did you use or did you make your own mix?

    1. King Arthur flower. It’s not easy being gluten and lactose free! I keep cheating and then pay for it later :(. It’s a pain in the butt! ha

  2. Hi, Jessica–

    Everybody’s stomach is different, but I will pass along what I learned with problems similar to what you describe: 1) probiotics (of all things) were making me ill–I had tried a few types and realized they caused problems so wasn’t taking them–I thought–until, one day after 2 years of GI analysis & testing, I forgot to take my vitamins and had no indigestion whatsoever. I took a closer look and discovered that the “raw food” vitamins I was taking had probiotics and (probably for other reasons as well) were causing me all kinds of indigestion. When those went away, most problems went away.

    The other thing I learned by elimination and substitution was that it was not the gluten that caused me problems in flour, it was all the OTHER stuff–the bromides, GMA, chemicals, etc. I make most of my own bread products now, and buy Wheat, Montana flour (I hear it is available at Sam’s Club on east coast) which has no additives and is non-GMA, and use that in my cooking, and after a little time for things to quiet down, those two little adjustments have pretty much wiped out all my stomach problems.

    Probably your issues are different but I pass them along because I sure wish someone had clued me in on considering those things sooner. . .just the opposite of the conventional wisdom in my case. I do realize gluten can definitely cause problems for some people, but I’ve long suspected that gluten isn’t necessarily always the culprit (if it was, in our grain-based society we’d be goign on 200 years of people with bad stomachs and the medical community would have figured out a solution by now). Anyway, FWIW–good luck to you!
    Best,
    Anne

    1. Thanks Anne! Hopefully the test results will say something. I will say, since I started cutting out the gluten and no lactose, it has helped but it’s not perfect. There is so much crap in everything we eat!!! Good luck with your situation. Hopefully you get it figured out too 🙂
