No Flour, No Sugar Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins
This is a delicious alternative muffin recipe for those on a low gi, low carb, diet or have a gluten or wheat intolerance.
"If you are on a special diet, these are a real treat! No flour, sugar or oil, hard to make things taste good. I chopped up cinnamon almonds on the top to add crunch. Did not have apple sauce so pureed a quarter of an apple. Didn't have any milk and used Silk. Made 4 giant muffins, used PAM spray instead of butter. Baked at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Healthy, tasty and filling."- DoubleChin
