More About This Recipe

Tip: You can also make it gluten-free by swapping out the same amount of all purpose flour for gluten-free flour. I recommend purchasing any gluten-free flour that gives you one for one exchange. As always, it is not the same same texture as regular flour so your muffins will taste a bit different, but they will still be delicious!
