Start by dumping some Golden Flavour Crisco Shortening, eggs, almond milk, and vanilla extract into a large mixing bowl.

Then use an electric hand mixer to beat the ingredients together until no large lumps remain.

Next I added some granulated sugar, and meringue powder to the bowl.

I used the electric hand mixer again to beat the ingredients until they were light and fluffy.

Now I measured in some Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free All Purpose Flour, baking soda, salt and xanthan gum.

I used a large wooden spoon to stir the dry ingredients into the batter.

Then I dumped in some wild blueberries.  I like to use wild berries because they are smaller.

Using the wooden spoon, I carefully folded in the wild blueberries.

Then I used a scoop to fill the muffin cups and placed them in a 350F oven.

I baked the muffins for 25 minutes or until a tooth pick inserted in the center came out clean.

When I removed them from the oven I allowed them to cool in the pan for 5 minutes.

After 5 minutes I flipped the muffins onto their sides to finish cooling.

Pair Gluten Free Blueberry Muffins with your favourite coffee blend for a satisfying breakfast or mid morning snack.

    Can butter or regular shortening be used in place of the Golden Flavour shortening? I cannot find that where I live. Ty
