Coles Gluten Free Blueberry Muffin

Coles Gluten Free Blueberry Muffin

Coles have a few gluten free baked goods hiding in the regular folks bakery section – including a blueberry muffin.

If you’re wondering what the other products are I’ve reviewed a few of them!

The Taste

There weren’t any visible blueberries up top so I was a bit worried when I opened the packet. I cut one in half to check and there are a few inside.

The muffin is very soft and fluffy, maybe more of a cake texture than muffin. Not crumbly or messy which is super nice. I ate it sitting on the floor (a picnic!) and there were only two pieces on me at the end.

It’s not overly sweet, which is surprising for long life baked goods. I noticed as I was eating that all the blueberries sink to the bottom, but there are a few in there.

The upgrade

Okay so a ready-made muffin doesn’t really need an upgrade. But I had leftover Betty Crocker cream cheese frosting in the fridge from a previous project. Cream cheese frosting and a blueberry muffin seemed a perfect fit!

I heated up a few tablespoons (it’s very solid from the fridge) and added it to our muffins. I placed a few fresh blueberries on top to finish it.

The icing definitely made it sweet 😁.

THE VERDICT

I don’t think I’ll be in Coles buying this gluten free blueberry muffin again. Not because it tasted bad, it was just a bit boring. Of the Coles bakes my clear favourite is the plant-based chocolate cupcake.
