Grain-Free Blueberry Muffins

I wake up pretty early during the week to make it to work on time,
but on the weekends I love turning off the alarm and sleeping in.
Best feeling ever!

This past weekend I did manage to get up in time to make it to our local
Farmer's Market before all of the blueberries sold out.
We love fresh berries around here, so I was excited to buy some local organic
blueberries.  I love them on my oatmeal and in smoothies.

Since it was the weekend and I had extra time I decided to try a new blueberry
muffin recipe.  I've been been seeing a lot of grain-free recipes on food blogs that I
follow and was intrigued so I decided to try making grain-free blueberry muffins.

I love to experiment with recipes so I already had almond and coconut flour in my pantry.
I love not having to run to the store when making a recipe!

The muffins were delicious!
The blueberries were sweet, slightly tart and pop in your mouth.
I didn't miss the grains at all!
I'm definitely going to try more grain-free recipes in the future.
Give them a try and let me know what you think.
