Healthy Blueberry Muffins {Gluten Free, Sugar Free}

These healthy blueberry muffins are packed with superfood ingredients, high in protein, and low in sugar, making them a perfect option for breakfast on-the-go!  They are naturally gluten-free (oat flour) and sweetened naturally with a touch of honey and some applesauce. Plus, they are super simple to make!

Thanks to the juicy blueberries, Greek yogurt, honey, eggs, and the applesauce, these healthy blueberry muffins are pretty moist. Add some oat flour to thicken up the batter, and you’ve got the easiest gluten free muffin recipe ever!

Adding the blueberry “jam” on top ensures that every muffin has plenty of blueberry goodness, plus adds aesthetic appeal, in my opinion.  To make it, I simply microwaved some frozen blueberries and gently smashed them with a fork and a dash of honey. You can do this with fresh blueberries and/or on the stove top too. Or, simply use store-bought blueberry jam! (I would just look for one that is not loaded with a ton of added sugars).
