Product: Lucky Clover Farm Gluten-Free Blueberry Muffin – $3.00

Yeah…after the mention of the Gluten-Free Blueberry Muffin from Lucky Clover Farm in my previous post, I wasn’t going to leave you hanging.  Seriously.  I think I’m in love with the gluten-free baked goods this local business is putting out.  I am so glad that I went to the Buy Local Fair in Louisville on Sunday because I don’t think I would have found them otherwise.

Happiness…is being able to eat baked goodies!

Because unless I go to a specialty bakery or buy them in the store or make them myself…I go without.

That’s how it works when you are a Celiac.

That being said…when I literally turned around and walked back to the booth at the Buy Local Fair that was advertising gluten-free breads, muffins, cakes, etc…I didn’t know what I was in for.  I ended up purchasing more than what I initially intended.  I wanted the gluten-free carrot cake…but it’s hard to sell that on my roomie.  She was intrigued by the herb bread…and I just blogged on that.  We also picked out three of the jam varieties they had for sale as well.  We are jelly and jam lovers here.  Seriously.  I kept eying that carrot cake…but ended up leaving it and going for the Gluten-Free Blueberry Muffin instead.

First of all, I have never seen such beautiful muffins.  It was shaped like a giant flour.  Seriously.  I picked up one of the individually wrapped muffins and found it soft, light, and smelling of fresh blueberries.  It smelled sweet.  And fresh.  And…yeah…I supposed I could leave the carrot cake behind this time if this was what I got to have instead.

On Monday morning, after my spin class, I returned home and got to work on a quick and easy breakfast.  This was going to consist of some of the aforementioned gluten-free herb bread from Lucky Clover Farm…and Cathy and I were splitting the Gluten-Free Blueberry Muffin.  I decided to toast the slice of bread, tossing it on a pan and then into the oven while I went and showered.  When I was dressed and back in the kitchen, the bread was finishing up…so I unwrapped the blooming Gluten-Free Blueberry Muffin from Lucky Clover Farm, placed it on a plate, and then placed it in the microwave for about 20 seconds.

It smelled so amazing as it emerged out of the microwave, warm all the way through.  I sliced it in half…then into quarters.  Cathy loves her muffin buttered, so I added a light schmear of real butter to her muffin slices and then plated it with the toasted gluten-free herb bread.

I never have buttered much of anything I ate…including bread and muffins, so mine was simply plated.  I settled in with my coffee and my tasty (and easy and quick) breakfast that morning.  I already knew the bread was good, so I immediately turned my attention and appetite to the Gluten-Free Blueberry Muffin.

It was so soft and light.  It was not dense at all.  Just fresh and baked to a golden perfection on the outside.  The blueberries added a great amount of fresh sweetness.  And it wasn’t laden with sugar, making it seem more like cake.  This was a muffin through-and-through.  It was soft and chewy and perfect.  I think angels might have baked it…because I love a muffin that isn’t heavy.  And this was just what I needed that morning.  They seem to make different varieties of their gluten-free muffins throughout the year and where they end up at different fairs and festivals and markets.

I can’t say enough good things about Lucky Clover Farms.  In fact, these gluten-free baked goods were such a hit with me and Cathy that we can’t wait to try the jams out.

This might have been my favorite Gluten-Free Blueberry Muffin to date.  I mean…it looked like a flower and tasted like a dream.

Doesn’t get much better than that!
