These muffins are wonderful for breakfast or as an afternoon snack. I also love taking them to potlucks. Since they are gluten-free, I know everyone can enjoy them!

You’ll start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees, and line a muffin pan with muffin papers. This recipe will make 10 standard sized muffins.

You will want to sift your flour so that they are no lumps. If you don’t have a sifter, a fine metal sieve works just fine.

Simply place your sieve over the mixing bowl, and put your dry ingredients in it, then stir with a spoon. Honestly, even though I have an actual sifter, I find this to be my go-to method. It’s quick and the sieve is easier to clean.

Once the batter is ready, you will scoop it into the muffin pan. I always use a muffin scoop, since it is the easiest way to get the batter evenly distributed.

The cups should be about 2/3 full.

Your muffins will bake for 18-20 minutes or until they spring back when you gently press in the center. Immediately transfer the muffins to a cooling rack to cool completely.
