Morning Glory Muffins
It’s the perfect morning picture, isn’t it? The sunshine pouring across the kitchen table, birds singing outside the window, and the sound of a busy day not yet underway.
A morning started this way would do us all a world of good for the hours that follow.
Wonderful muffin recipe
Betty Crocker must have agreed with me because she came up with this wonderful muffin recipe. I adapted it to become gluten-free along with the option of making it egg-free as well. You can make these into muffins or cut into squares.
Go ahead, make a batch and we can nibble them together. 🙂
