Lemon-Blueberry Muffins – my recipe in the 47th Pillsbury Bake-Off. I’m 1 of 100 finalists. I’m honored to be in a group of such talented and creative home bakers. We will be competing for the million dollar prize this November in Nashville. I’m so excited!

I think you’re really going to like them! You would never know that they were gluten free. They taste just like a good old fashioned blueberry muffin, with a hint of lemon and a sweet cream cheese topping. Plus, they’re super easy to make!
