Udis Gluten Free - Soft & Delicious Blueberry Muffins

By 16:56 , ,

Muffins are one of my favourite sweet foods because I feel they are very versatile,  what other sweet treat can be acceptably eaten at breakfast, lunch or dinner? In my search for the perfect gluten free muffin I have eaten more than my fair share of them!

I particularly enjoy eating muffins for breakfast so when I saw these blueberry ones I was really pleased, as this used to be one of my go to breakfasts when my sweet tooth called!

Udis blueberry muffins are also dairy free and retail for £1.90 for a pack of two,  95p each. I do feel all gluten free muffins are expensive, particularly since I brought the chocolate and toffee variety at the free from show for £1 a pack. Nevertheless they are one of the best muffins I have had that aren't a chocolate based mixture. Don't get me wrong I love chocolate, but there is a lot of free from chocolate based cakes, it's good to find something a little different.

One muffin is 277 calories, with 12.5 grams of fat, which is what I would expect for bakery goods, I have these as a occasional treat as they are not the most healthy of things. They do have blueberries though, so surely that makes it one of your five a day ;)... or at least that's what I tell myself!

This muffin has the lightest, fluffiest texture I have ever found from a gluten free muffin, very much like when you make packet mix mainstream muffins with oil instead of butter. Udis may have even made the muffins this way as the case is quite oily and this avoid dairy, I should have checked the ingredients to see! The muffin does not feel particularly greasy to eat, but does mean it just creates a moist mixture which is in no way dry, if anything they are more moist than a mainstream muffin.

There is a good amount of blueberries in the mixture, in fact I had to use the one with less blueberries in the picture otherwise the muffin looked purple! The blueberries have more or less melted into the mixture, so have no texture but the flavour still comes through strongly. There is no odd powdery aftertaste and can quite easily be mistaken for a 'regular' muffin.

I found these on and this is the only place to date I have found these, but I am sure they may be found in your closest Tesco store, as their Udis stock seems to be growing in my store.

I really enjoyed these muffins and I would love to know if you have tried them, or any other great free from muffins for that matter!

I have a chocolate muffin comparison coming very soon!
