These gluten-free blueberry banana muffins are easy to make, and perfect for breakfast, brunch, or dessert! A perfect gluten-free recipe!
I’m a natural night owl, but I’m trying to change my ways to be more in line with my husband, who’s a natural morning person. Ugh. Morning people.
Anyway, I’ve tried lots of mental motivation to get myself out of bed, but all of them left me dragging my feet, laying in bed until the last possible moment, dreading the day.
Except for yesterday. I went to bed thinking about these amazing blueberry banana muffins my sister made one time, and I though, “I want to get up early and bake some muffins for breakfast”. And I did. No big deal, and muffins were cooling on the table before the kids woke up.
I think I’ve finally figured out what motivates me to get out of bed. Not going to the gym (as much as I want to work out), not cleaning, or working on the computer.
Nope. What motivates me to get out of bed is the thought of doing something relaxing and enjoyable. Baking by myself, and taking my own sweet time doing it.
The result? Delicious, moist, gluten-free blueberry banana muffins. Easy to make (because aren’t muffins always?), and ridiculously tasty!
The only drawback to baking in the morning is that it’s hard to find good lighting for pictures. Oh well, it’s worth it!
