Dietitian Tips:

§  This recipe is gluten free so long as you double check that the baking powder is made with cornstarch instead of wheat starch.

§  Because there’s no flour in this recipe, it doubles, or triples very well. You can double the recipe to make 10 muffins or triple it to make 12 large muffins simply by filing each cup a big fuller.

§  For an extra protein boost, add ¼ – ½ cup of nuts or seeds to the recipe or serve the muffin with plain yogurt or a glass of milk.
