GLUTEN-FREE CINNAMON MUFFINS

3 years ago

This time of year marks the WEEK OF JESS in our house. My husband and I have our wedding anniversary, Mothers Day and then my birthday.  A week of celebrations use to mean a week of treats; it would start with German Chocolate Cake, followed by cookies and ended with a Black Forest Cake.  Now it's  low sugar muffins for breakfast OR cookies and a single slice of cake, I'm slowly growing up. 

Last year I made an Apple Spice Coffee Cake, it's 21 Day Sugar Detox compliant and delicious. This year it's Cinnamon Muffins, also 21DSD compliant. Served warm and topped with Pumpkin Butter, it's definitely the way I want to start celebrate every day.
