Gingered Orange Muffins

1/3 cup canola oil
1/3 cup honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup fresh orange juice
1/2 cup orange marmalade
3 cups gluten-free flour mixture
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon orange zest
1 teaspoon ground ginger
2 tablespoons fresh blueberries

1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Lightly spray a 12-cup muffin tin; set aside.

2. Place the oil, honey, vanilla, juice, and marmalade into a blender or food processor and blend until thoroughly mixed, about 30 seconds.

3. In a separate large bowl mix the remaining ingredients (except the raisins). Add the wet ingredients to the dry, and mix gently to combine. Stir in the raisins and mix just enough to distribute evenly through the batter.

4. Fill the muffin tins to the top. Bake until the muffin tops are just golden brown, about 20-25 minutes. Allow to cool slightly in the pan before removing to a rack or plate to cool or to serve warm.
