Gluten free muffins are an easy option for breakfast on the go – and one of my favorite options too!

I am gluten sensitive and it is hard to find gluten free breakfast options that are actually great tasting.  I played around with ingredients that I like, and created this super easy and yummy gluten free muffin recipe.  Enjoy!

Makes 12 muffins or 24 mini muffins

Ingredients

¼ cup ground flax seed

¾ cup quick cook oats

1 cup oat flour

¼ teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Serious deliciousness – all in these healthy gluten free muffins!

You can mix and match the ingredients.  Swap out chocolate chips for raisins or craisins.  If you’re not a peanut butter lover, try almond butter – a great alternative!
