Gluten Free Dairy Free Morning Glory Muffins

My kids often don’t request the healthiest things for breakfast.  They often ask for cereal, poptarts or hotdogs (gasp).  I don’t give in to all of their requests, but I do enjoy giving them something they like (muffins) and something that is healthy for them.  These delicious muffins satisfy those two requirements.  They are loaded with nutrients, taste great and are easy to fix before school.

    What ratio of flour and starch would you suggest for the flour blend?

    My 3 year old son and I made these today. The only change I made was adding chopped apples. They were moist and delicious. Thanks!

    I didn’t have applesauce handy, but I did have an apple–I peeled it and chopped it up in the food processor and used it instead. The recipe still turned out delicious. Moist and sweet, but not too sweet. Thank you!
