Breakfast Quinoa Salad

Blueberry Mango Muffins (gluten free, low sugar)

Our family loves healthy muffins. I often throw them in my older daughter's lunch or snack, and I am baking some variety nearly every week. These muffins were created with the help of my 2 year old today, who insisted that we throw in mango and blueberries so I rolled with it. She's on to something! I avoid white and wheat flour when possible. We don't completely avoid gluten, but when I have control I choose other options as wheat is a particularly inflammatory food and you'll never miss it in these muffins. Instead, this recipe uses a combo of rolled oats and almond meal, but you could replace the almond meal with whole wheat pastry flour or white flour, if desired. Blueberry Mango Muff
