Gluten Free Blueberry Muffins – Rust Nutrition Services – Chew The Facts®

Are you looking for delicious ways to add more protein and fiber to your diet?

While I don’t have a gluten sensitivity, many do. As an ambassador to the National Peanut Board, I occasionally get peanut-y gift sent to me. They was recently send this Peanut Flour Blend and decided to try it in a muffin recipe.

This Peanut Flour baking blend is a blend of peanut flour, buckwheat flour, and oat fiber. It’s makes delicious muffins and pancakes that are higher in protein and fiber than when using traditional all purpose (AP) flour. It’s light peanut flavor is ideal for muffins, pancakes, brownies or quick breads.

Added Fiber and Protein

Like whole wheat flour, peanut flour adds some fiber to your pancakes or quick breads. However this gluten-free peanut flour has six times the fiber, and triple the protein of regular all-purpose (AP) flour. Compared to almond flour, it also has less calories, and 80% less fat. It replaces AP flour with a 1:1 swap, so offers an easy substitution for your favorite baked goods.

Each muffin contains about 8 grams of protein and 3 grams of fiber, per muffin. You’ll enjoy adding these to your meal plan! See the video and let me know if you try them!
