Brilliant Gluten Free Coconut Macaroons, GF, Sugarfree option

I love the sweet chewiness of a coconut macaroon but the sugar content in the commercial products was always too much for my tastes. Until I made these...They are divine and healthy! And guess what? they are super easy to make gluten free!

Super Breakfast Muffin Recipe made with Oatmeal, Carrot and Blueberry, gluten free, egg free, sugar free

Try this Super muffin recipe made with gluten free oat flour, carrots, chia and blueberries. All the things you want for breakfast in a muffin!
Sometimes life gets busy and I forget to eat right! If I'm running out the door in the morning and if there's nothing easily portable, like a muffin or yogurt, I'll go without breakfast. Not a great thing to do,  but that's what happens when you are gluten free and you can't stop at McDonald's!
So I made up this recipe with all of my favorite breakfast ingredients in one easy to carry delicious little package and I call it my Super Muffin. It gives me fiber, vegetables, protein, tons of vitamins, and these wonderful gluten-free muffins fill me up!

Healthy, tons of nutrition and they taste like an oatmeal cookie! Super yummy.

You can substitute almost any flour for the oat flour or for low carb try almond or hazelnut flour. Make sure you dough is very thick and feel free playing with the add-ins.
