Rise & Shine Gluten-Free Muffins Recipe

We are back, Blue Birds! I apologize for the hiatus in recipes, we have been busy bees over here and are finally getting back in the groove of writing and publishing. We have added a new member to our recipe development staff; together, Kathie and I will continue to bring you all the tasty treats! This week we are bringing you a family favorite. Growing up, we always had muffins in the house. Whether it was for breakfast or a midnight snack, these gluten-free muffins were still a hit. Mom must have known what she was doing because there were loads of nutrients packed in these muffins. While they might sound like a treat meant for fall, these beauties are excellent all year round. The pumpkin and spices aren’t overwhelming and seem to hit the exact right spot every time. Blue Bird Poppy Seeds™ and Vanilla Beans added in made these close to perfect! A fun variation is to replace the grated carrots with shredded apple. I hope you all enjoy them as much as I continue to! As always, please send any pictures of your creations to manager@lonegoosebakery.com for rewards points!!
