Introduction: Blueberry Grub Muffins. Gluten Free

Bluuuuueberry Grub Muffins. Come and get em' while they're hot!! And, they're gluten free too so all of you celiacs out there can enjoy them as well. Why grubs you ask... well why not sneak in a little protein when we can.

For this recipe I used Wax worms which are the caterpillar larvae of wax moths. They have a neutral taste and take on the flavor of what you cook them in. For example, I prep cooked the little critters for one minute in a persimmon/ Kefir lime leaf stock. The waxworms took that flavor on and you can taste it in the muffin which adds another layer of flavor.
