Blueberry, Cranberry, Red Fife Muffins (Dairy, Egg, Refined Sugar Free)

My oldest daughter wanted to create her own recipe.  She decided she wanted to make muffins.  One of her favourite muffins is blueberry and she wanted to add in cranberries as well.  Since she has a low tolerance to eggs, these muffins are also egg free.  I am so proud of her for creating this recipe, primarily on her own and for even typing it up for me ;)

We used an organic red fife flour.  Red fife flour Canada's heritage wheat flour, which was introduced to in the 1840's.  Although this is a gluten grain it has not been altered by synthetic compounds, chemicals or GMO's.   Red Fife is much lower in gliadin (a protein present in wheat gluten) which makes this flour much easier to digest for those with gluten sensitivities.  I have been told this the only wheat some people can eat.  We enjoy its flavour and find it be a great flour for breads and hearty muffins.  We hope you give it a try!

Ingredients (makes 8-10 muffins)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon of sea salt
  • 1 ½ cups of red fife flour
  • ½ a cup of maple syrup
  • 2 chia eggs (1 tablespoon ground chia + 3 tablespoons water =1 chia egg)
  • ⅓ of a cup of grape seed oil
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • ½ cup blueberries
  • ½ cup cranberries
