Morning Glory Muffins – Gluten-free muffins

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERACue the lights, heavenly music, choir slowly builds in volume, “ahhhhhhhhhh”. Ok, harder to describe in words than video. That’s how I feel when describing these gloriously, fabulous morning glory muffins. Yum! You can make them gluten free or non-gluten free. Conrad is convinced they taste different with the rice flour. Really? I should never have said a word! Use this recipe as your palette and make your own creations. Add nuts, add raisins, add some cranberries or blueberries. Go crazy and call it a better morning! OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
