Gluten-free Applesauce Muffins

Gluten-free Applesauce Muffins

Recipe by Gluten Free Baking By Rachelle (Rachelle Himmelman)

My family loves treats, cakes, pies, cookies, and I'm always looking for something that I can make for 

lunches everyday. I do not like buying any sort of cookies or bakery items in a store and I prefer to make all of our treats from scratch. I really enjoy this time of the year with so many wonderful fruits and vegetables to choose from, apples, pumpkins, squash and many, many more. These Gluten-free Applesauce Muffins are excellent for breakfast or a quick snack and freeze beautifully.
