I haven’t had much time to shop at Trader Joe’s this summer, so when I was in the vicinity yesterday, I ran in to see if I could pick up some almond butter. Much to my surprise, my local Trader Joe’s is expanding and making room for more yummy goodness! While on my way through the store, I discovered a new product in the bread aisle…Gluten-Free Blueberry Muffins.
I knew exactly when I was going to dig into these…this morning after a running with my friend (also gluten-free).
These muffins are spectacular! They are moist and full of flavor and not lacking in blueberries. After seeing applesauce as the second ingredient, I knew why the muffins were so moist.
Perfect refueling snack for after a morning run. Kudos to Trader Joe’s for adding another great product to their gluten-free line-up.
Have you tried the new muffins from Trader Joe’s

Dr. Praeger’s Sensible Foods has been around since 1994 when cardiothoracic surgeon, Dr. Peter Praeger and his medical partner, Dr. Eric Somberg, helped keep a family business alive. After buying Ungar’s Gelfite Fish, the doctors set out on a mission. The mission is to introduce people to healthy food that tasted great. Today some of those foods include a wide variety of gluten-free products.
Dr. Praeger’s recently upgraded their breading on their gluten-free fish products to a rice-based coating.

I like that a lot of the product line comes in shapes that are sure to please even the pickiest child.
