Who says that you can only eat muffins filled with berries in the summer. My freezer is filled with delicious berries that I froze in the summer! Some people want to wait until the dead of winter. I say enjoy them all year long!! You can have your own creations. Choose one kind of berry or add three. What ever flavour you would like is your choice.
Very Berry Muffins (Gluten Free/ Dairy Free/ Vegan/ Refined Sugar Free/ Soy Free/ Nut Free)

1 tsp. baking soda
3/4 tsp. xanthan gum
1/4 tsp. sea salt
2 Tbsp. coconut oil

1 c. mixed berries (if frozen do not defrost)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees
In a medium size bowl whisk together flours, ground flax, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, xanthan gum and sea salt. Cut in coconut oil. Set aside.
