“My son is gluten and casein intolerant; I can't have wheat. These muffins are a great way to use up the "last bit at the bottom of the box" of GF cereal - or varieties we didn't care for. Feel free to adjust the fruit and extract/spice blends to taste. Frozen muffins can be defrosted at half power in microwave for about 3 minutes.”
