Gluten Free Lemon Poppy Muffins

Gluten Free Lemon Poppy Muffins
By Be Well Health Coach Katrine van Wyk

Being gluten-free does not have to mean you can never enjoy another freshly baked good. Thank God! After tasting these delicious lemon poppy muffins from our Provenance Meals delivery at the office, we hunted down the recipe from their chef, Carla Contreras so that we could share it with all of you. They are paleo, made without any refined grain flours at all, just almond flour/meal, eggs, butter and sweetened with raw honey. Nutritious and delicious – just how we like it. We hope you like it as much as we do.
