I did it!

yup – after 5 frustrating tries I finally got it right.

I just made the most Awesome Passover GF Blueberry Muffins!

& I want to KVELL! :)

the one thing that I find I am really missing on Pesach is some type of muffin to eat with my morning coffee.

NOT an expert when it comes to Gluten Free baking, I specifically wanted to come up with a recipe

that was not a sponge cake recipe with a 100 eggs that have been whipped…

I really wanted something that was more on-point as far as flavor, texture and can

ultimately satisfy that craving and be a little healthier to boot.

having a different recipe in mind originally…

I went to the store looking for my ingredients.

when I went down the Kosher for Pesach aisle

I saw a box of Farina

instantly I had a flash of seeing a recipe for Farina Breakfast Muffins.

without the recipe, but willing to experiment, I bought the box.

The first 2 batches were awful…

I almost gave up on the spot…

thinking ugh it’s one week – I will survive without a morning muffin!

but I was already in the kitchen and the mess was made…

so what the heck..what’s another try?

and the 3rd batch was better…but not exactly..

with the last minute inspired switch from potato starch to tapioca starch

I had it! I did it! WOOHOO!

my tenacity paid off in a big way with this delicious recipe.

So much so, that I will be making these muffins YEAR ROUND.
