One of my favorite blogs is With Style & Grace written by Lisa Thiele.  She is a Gluten-free entertainer who inspires a new way of healthy living with easy and delicious gluten-free recipes. Well, let me tell you, when I read her blog and especially her recipes, I am super inspired (Silver Lining).

When I came across these yumma-looking muffins, I had to try them. Lo and behold they are indeed as good as they look!  Seriously delish…and easy peasy, of course.  Hope that you enjoy them as much as we do!

    Thanks for this great-looking recipe. We are planning a weekend brunch with a gluten-free friend and I was wondering what to prepare. Now I know!
