About

Naturally gluten-free, these muffins are chock full of fiber with flax seed meal, have a little boost of protein with quinoa flour and contain no processed white sugar. You can also easily make them dairy free. They’re incredibly moist and dense, but not very sweet. Because of this you can toast one up for breakfast or serve as a dinner “roll”. If you need them sweeter, I suggest slathering with some jam or dunking in maple syrup or honey. Butter is also delightful… mmmmmmm…
