Cooking has always been one of my greatest passions. Last night was no different, with a bunch of friends over for dinner, I thought I would make these Blasts! This dish is gluten-free, though it can be used with regular plain flour instead, for those that are not coeliacs. Blueberries are rich in potent antioxidant pro-anthocyanins, which help limit free radical mediated injury. These Peanut Butter and Blueberry Blasts are an alternative to brownies and exceptionally scrumptious!
