Gluten Free Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Muffins

Muffins, muffins everywhere! Obviously, we enjoy a good muffin around here. Pictured above are the Gluten Free Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Muffins. I’ll share the recipe soon.  It’s just not QUITE perfected. It’s got an endorsement from 50% of the family, but 2 of us are holding out for a little more of a “Wow!” factor.  Hopefully, we’ll get there this week.  We’re also in the mood for the fall flavors of pumpkin, apples, sweet potatoes, and soup around here, but because it’s actually still pretty warm, we’re just not ready to give up the watermelon that’s still showing up at the Farmer’s Market! Plus, when you’ve got a kiddo that really only likes about two raw fresh fruits (apples and watermelon) you tend to serve them year-round regardless of whether they’re in season! Then, you shove as many others as you possibly can into a smoothie. You throw in spinach, chia and the like, thank your lucky stars that he’ll eat nearly anything in that form, and you wait for his tastebuds to get a little more flexible!
