Pumpkin Flax Muffins (gluten free)

18 Dec

These little bites of joy are both moist AND fluffy, what more could you ask for? You would never be able to tell they are sans butter! Healthy, full of delicious orange nutrients (beta-carotene) and fiber from the flax. Probably my favorite muffin I have ever made… they are definitely worth trying out.  — Alex
