Blueberry Muffins with Sugar Topping

    I have made these muffins twice now for my family and they said they are the best muffins they have ever had. I substituted the flour for Gluten Free King Arthur’s Measure for Measure because my husband has celiac. You would never know they were gluten free. Will definitely be making these on repeat.

    Made these tonight for tomorrow’s breakfast. Substituted half the butter for applesauce to cut the fat(29g butter & 28g applesauce). Turned out great!

    FYI – subbing applesauce in for butter makes the bake a little more dense. Typically don’t advise going over 1:1 ratio replacement.

    Thanks for the recipe
