I recently received a Paka Baking Mix for Blueberry Muffins from SilverFernBrand.com to taste test and review. Since the baking mix is all-natural and gluten-free, I waited to make and share them at my mother's house since my mom is on a gluten-free diet.
Gluten-Free Blueberry Muffins Ingredients
- Paka Blueberry Muffin Baking Mix
- 3 eggs
- 1/2 cup applesauce (which is exactly one serving of applesauce if you buy the pre-packaged servings; two are shown in the photo, but we only used one)
At first, I was disappointed that I didn't see a separate can for the blueberries, as I don't like the blueberry “chips” that you find in some blueberry muffin mixes. But then I noticed that they were dried “big” blueberries which reversed my letdown.
My mom usually uses silicone baking cups, but I had brought along some clearance cupcake liners from my stockpile. I think I have a lifetime supply of cupcake papers for every holiday (these were Halloween). The box said the baking mix makes 12 blueberry muffins, and they were more than generous as I filled up the tray to about 85% full.

My mom thought these Paka blueberry muffins were delicious compared to other gluten-free baking mixes she has tried. I rated them “okay” compared to non-gluten blueberry muffins that I've had. They definitely tasted “nutritious” which it turns out they are! Each muffin contains 5 grams of protein, 8 grams of fiber and only 7 net carbs. So, since they are healthier than “regular” blueberry muffins, I'll up my rating from “okay” to “good.” 🙂
