Gluten free Blueberry Friands

The good thing about these, is there’s not a lot of flour, so using gluten free flour (which often gives not as good a result as “regular” flour) doesn’t matter much to the end result. I used a muffin tin for these, but if you have a friand tin, that’s even better. Whenever I made something that uses the yolk of an egg only, I freeze the white in a tiny container. After a while I get sick of all the little containers building up in the freezer, and look for something to use them in.
