Gluten Free Blueberry Coffee Cake Muffins

Gluten Free Blueberry Coffee Cake Muffins

Out of nowhere the other day I started thinking about these little coffee crumb cakes I used to take to school for breakfast basically every day as a kid. There were three little bite sized crumb cakes in one little package and they were my absolute favorite!

I haven’t had them in years so I thought I’d create my own at home, adding blueberries and making them gluten free.

They were the best breakfast treat I’ve had since I created S’Mores Waffles!

Sweet, fresh, juicy blueberries peaking out of a buttery brown sugar crumble, it really doesn’t get much better!

I took a plate of these downstairs to my building manager and door man (just so I wouldn’t eat all dozen of them myself and of course because sharing is caring 😉 ) and they loved them! I went on my daily coffee run the next morning and when I came back in the front door, they were raving about them! Yay, I love sharing my creations with others and these muffins were the perfect time to do so!
