Gluten Free Muffins

One of the biggest goals I have for myself is to wake up each morning looking forward to the day ahead. Sometimes that happy anticipation comes with the pursuit of a big-picture, capital-“G” Goal—working hard at a career I love, whether I’m on my computer, behind the lens, or testing a batch of Gluten Free Muffins for the third time. Sometimes the happiness is a smaller, little “g” goal—eating a fluffy, moist Gluten Free Muffin for breakfast (perfect batch #4 of course!).

Fluffy and moist Gluten Free Muffins with blueberries! This easy gluten free muffin recipe is made with almond flour and contains NO SUGAR! Naturally sweetened with banana and pure maple syrup.

I’ve long identified myself as an over-eager over achiever who bounds out of bed ready to give the day if not my best, then at least my honest effort.

Lately, however, that vigor has been harder to find. Do you ever have mornings where you what to hit snooze until it’s time to go to bed again? I’ve had a few recent mornings like that.
