“I don’t miss any wheat in my diet thanks to this recipe. It’s a keeper.”
“Well, it did turn out deliciously! very nice recipe!! I have been making lots of muffins with the gluten free flour mix for some time now and have had mixed results from them all. The very good ones were actually good on their own, while the others didn’t taste so great baked up with all the gooeyness of a muffin. Thanks again for another great recipe that I will be able to eat out on my gluten free diet due to being able to have a muffin one day while going out to a Mexican restaurant the next.”
“Great muffins. I love the combination of oats, flax seed meal, sunflower seeds, and pumpkin. My husband is not a big pumpkin fan so I subbed in some applesauce instead. The only thing different was I used baking powder instead of baking soda. They came out great.”
“I was hesitant to even try this recipe because i do not like pumpkin very much, but these turned out amazing! So much better then store bought for me. Will definitely use again.”
“Oh my gosh! Love these muffins & I am currently on a *gluten free* diet (2 months now).”
“These came out very well. I had read others remarks about using baking soda instead of baking powder and decided to give it a try, but they still came out great!! My husband’s family doesn’t like the taste of pumpkin either but he did not mind these at all. They did keep a little puffy in the middle after cooling.”
“I am not a huge fan of pumpkin, but this is amazing! I feel like I can have some sort of treat for breakfast and be satisfied.”
