Author Notes: It's the peakof berry season in Italy. Fresh berries populate local markets and invited me to bake these wholesome muffins. Gluten free and not too sweet, they go well with whatever break you want to take during the day. Suggestion: eat one with a glass of milk...There's few things better. - Valeria Necchio
