gluten free banana oatmeal muffinsAs I recently have some time, I had been looking on the internet a few days ago. In search of new, intriguing ideas, inspiring dishes that I have never tested before, to treat my loved ones with. Searching for a while but could not discover lots of interesting things. Just before I wanted to give up on it, I found this yummy and simple dessert simply by chance. It seemed so mouth-watering on its photo, it required prompt action.
It absolutely was not difficult to imagine just how it is made, its taste and just how much boyfriend will enjoy it. Actually, it is quite simple to delight him when it comes to desserts. Anyway, I went to the blog: Ambitiouskitchen and then used the simple instuctions which were coupled with great photos of the operation. It just makes life much simpler. I could imagine that it is a slight hassle to take pics down the middle of baking in the kitchen because you normally have gross hands thus i genuinely appreciate the time and energy she put in to build this post .
With that in mind I'm empowered to present my personal best gluten free muffin recipes in a similar fashion. Many thanks the idea.
I had been fine tuning the original formula to make it for the taste of my loved ones. Need to mention that it was a great success. They loved the taste, the overall look and loved having a delicacy like this in the midst of a busy workweek. They basically demanded even more, many more. Thus the next time I am not going to commit the same mistake. I am likely to twin the quantity to get them delighted.

Life changing moments are few and far between. Hence, when even a small thing movements you, it must be embraced. So when of last week? I'm embracing Blueberry Chia Jam.
Can jam really be lifestyle changing you ask?? In cases like this... yes. You see, for a few 35+ years I've eaten my beloved PBJ with apricot jam multiple situations a week. This luscious combo provides stood the test of time and is becoming something I truly crave. Until, this happened.
A trip to an area organic U-Pick Blueberry Plantation ( Fairfield Farms - Pauma Valley ) present me with some 20 pounds of clean, perfectly ripe, pop in the mouth area blueberries. Our successful (and most heavenly) Blueberry Maple Syrup experienced my daughter consuming the syrup with a spoon and musing how the syrup would taste perfectly fabulous on a PBJ. Hmmm... you will want to change the syrup into jam?
With the well known health benefits from the antioxidant-rich, deeply hued berries, my goal with this jam became keeping the fabulous taste without filling my jam with granulated sugars or boxed pectin powders. An easy answer brought wealthy maple syrup (containing polyphenols, zinc and maganese) being a sweetener and protein-packed, calcium-filled chia seed to thicken.
Simmering the ingredients for only 20 minutes, the berries softened, then popped as well as the chia swelled right into a fabulously thick jam. Aromas of summer season wafted through our kitchen as we jarred our jam to chill.
The next day I took an opportunity. Forgoing my typical shop bought apricot jam, I slathered almond butter and the fresh blueberry chia edition on top of my freshly cooked, warm pita and after one bite, my entire life has been permanently changed.
Bursting with a rich blueberry flavor, this jam doesn't provide the cloying sweetness of store-bought variations, but instead the satisfying flavors of real fruits. The maple syrup sweetens lightly while offering the jam a wealthy layer of depth, as well as the chia provides a lovely consistency along with its multiple health advantages. I am sorry apricot, it's been an excellent 35 years, but there's a new jam in town. Blueberry Chia is here to stay.
Blueberry Chia Jam
1/4 cup real maple syrup, preferably the richer Quality B
1/4 cup chia seed
pinch of salt (optional)
Place blueberries and maple syrup into a saucepan over moderate heat and bring to a simmer. Stir occasionally until the berries soften and begin to pop.
Add the chia seeds and pinch of salt if preferred, and reduce heating slightly. Continue to simmer, stirring occasionally, until the mix becomes thick - 15-20 a few minutes. (For even thicker jam give it another five minutes or so... maintain a close attention though as jam reduces so as never to burn. Reduce heat to low if required).
Remove from warmth and spoon into jars. Allow to great, then cover and place in the fridge to chill. Jam will remain fresh weekly or two... but ours didn't make it past 5 times before we needed a fresh batch. #heavenly
