Mighty Morning Muffins

I am sharing a recipe for wholesome, healthy muffins that are perfect for an on-the-go snack or with breakfast in the morning.  They might look a little….boring…but trust me, they are yummy.  They are also super super simple to make – you only need two bowls to mix everything together.  These muffins are also naturally gluten free because they use almond flour and oats instead of flour.  Overall, they are moist and delicious so I don’t see why someone wouldn’t like them (unless you don’t like raisins…and in that case, I would advice you not to put them in and put chocolate chips instead)

This recipe is slightly changed, but is from Run Fast Eat Slow which has amazing recipes for simple, nourishing dishes.  I hope you give this recipe a go!
