Flash forward to Saturday morning when I didn't have a clue of what to make for breakfast. Alas, the sample packet from Jules taunted me, stared at me even. Upon checking the ingredients needed, I was excited to see that I had everything that I needed (even the frozen blueberries that I needed to use up). So on this cold morning,on went my oven and out came my apron. I substituted the butter with Winona Pure Oil Popcorn Butter Spray, used Ener-G powdered egg replacer for the egg and Almond Breeze Almond milk (we are peanut allergic, not almond allergic). I followed the enclosed recipe (thanks Jules!) and even channeled another great allergy-friendly cook via kitchen utensil (hey, it can't hurt, right?). The recipe states the mix makes approximately 6 muffins so I decide to go mini on this one- perhaps I could appeal to my picky children's visual temptation for them to look similar to those horribly processed, already-bagged blueberry muffins that you see in so many store. I also admit that while I was filling my mini muffin tray, I thought of my sweet friend Gratefulfoodie and silently wondered if she had a mini scoop for mini muffins....this is just how Nutrimom's brain works- constant, random thoughts but usually in a good way.
The verdict? Not only were these the most delicious smelling muffins but they were completely yummy! The texture was perfect- fluffy and light, almost as if there were marshmallows in them (if that makes sense) and I was happy that they came out so well with no "tweeks" (I have often found that products I use still require tweeking to come out successfully good). Check them out- aren't they adorable and delicious looking?! (I know, I have a strange fascination with foods but I am ok with that).
Did they pass NutriSon's Test? I am constantly sharing how picky my son is..which is unbelievable to me since I am Nutrimom, he is my son and he should (technically) be eating everything, right? (Buzzer) Nope- picky, picky, picky! Texture issues. As I digress.... And what was his take on these blueberry muffins (and, did I mention, he doesn't like blueberries?). Let's just say a picture is worth a thousand words~

GF Jules & VegetarianMamma for doing this for everyone. They did not ask me to post a review- I was so happy with the outcome that I felt it was just necessary. Please stop by both of their websites and give them a peek as well (make sure you tell them Nutrimom sent you so they give you some TLC).
