Gluten-free, dairy-free muffins with some real nutrition and no refined sugars? You can’t go wrong!
This recipe was born out of a desire to recreate what used to be one of my my very favorite muffin flavors. And then I went to the Bobs Red Mill Store and wanted to try my newly acquired blanched almond flour too. So with these two tasks in mind, these lovely muffins were born!
And if you are looking for a good gluten free dairy free vanilla cupcake or cake recipe, drop the poppy-seeds and lemon extract and voila! The crumb is ultra tender and moist, a real treat. Enjoy!
