Author Notes

This is a gluten free muffin recipe made with brown rice, millet, and almond flours - which means it's actually a Healthy gluten free recipe - no starches of any kind or even white rice flour. These muffins are really moist with a delicate crumb - a perfect muffin consistency and flavor, you can't even tell they are gluten free! Lightly sweetened, with the addition of lemon zest, really makes the flavor pop. The berries are lovely, but completely optional. —GlutenFreeBabe
