Marvelous Muffins – GF/Paleo/Almond Flour

Almond Flour Muffin from above

This is a wonderful template for a delicious and easy gluten free muffin recipe. You can experiment by adding different flavor combinations including: date walnut, lemon, poppy seed, dried cranberries, chocolate chips, cinnamon raisin, and orange dark chocolate chip. Check out my variations below. You can scale up the recipe and make as many muffins as you like. Double it for 8 muffins. Cut it in half for 2. I buy my raw, unpastuerized, organic almond flour at www.benefityourlife.com
