Nearly every time I enter a coffee shop I’m tempted to pair my soy latte with a muffin or scone but thanks to the required calorie counts on menus here in NYC I know better 😉

But for those days when I really want a fresh-baked good, I tell myself that I can just make my own and one that doesn’t have nearly the amount of calories as the ones sold in the coffee shops. But enough with telling myself I would do it someday…. and so I looked to my pantry and made a gluten-free muffin that is berry berry good! So this week as I walk to work my latte won’t be lonely as it has a new muffin friend!

***makes 12 muffins

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 cups gluten-free oats
  • 1 cup gluten-free all-purpose flour (I use Bob’s)

  • 4 TBL ground flax seed
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon

  • 1 1/2 cups fresh blackberries and raspberries

To Make:
