Gluten Free Morning Glory Muffins

Are you ready for something that will get you excited for the mornings?! These gluten free morning glory muffins will make your morning 100 times better! And it will get your brain all started up with that tongue twister of a name. You’re welcome! 😉

If there is one thing to know about me, it’s that I love baked goods. When I became gluten free, I had to start getting creative about the ingredients I was putting in my treats. I started playing with ideas and recipes to come up with gluten free recipes that not only I can enjoy, but others as well! And since I also have Type 1 diabetes, I try to make sure my recipes are low-carb and low sugar. Soooo what is a gal to do with these kinds of options? Well, I made lemonade with these lemons and created this DELISH recipe

These tasty muffins are filled with heart healthy ingredients like flax seeds which are full of omega-3 fatty acids plus chia seeds which are full of fiber. Carrots are a high source of antioxidants which help prevent things like heart disease. Apples have antioxidants, flavonoids, and fiber. With all of those superfoods inside these muffins, you will be feeling so good in the morning and ready to make this YOUR day. They are also great for a snack and I am partial to having mine with tea.

I always enjoy using Bob’s Red Mill Products when I am baking.

    Has anyone made these? I followed as directed but way to dry to even put in tins seems to not have enough wet ingredients to make a batter. Also doesnt say what to do with chia seeds??
