Gluten Free Sweet Potato Muffins

Gluten Free Sweet Potato Muffins

When a family member was diagnosed with Celiac disease eight years ago the selection of gluten free foods was pretty limited. Happily, today going gluten free is much easier. I buy a gluten free flour at Costco that can be used in any recipe that calls for all purpose flour. Gluten free flour is available in many grocery stores, too. It seems to bake, or at least brown, a little faster, so you have to keep an eye on what you use it in. It doesn’t get much easier than that. In this recipe you could also just use all purpose flour if that is what you prefer. Just increase baking time 3-5 minutes. The muffins are moist and not too sweet. They are great for breakfast, snacks or even as a dessert. They also freeze well so you can make a batch and freeze the extras for later.  Wonderful for busy days when you don’t have time to make them.

These would make a nice addition for a Thanksgiving breakfast. They can also be served with Thanksgiving dinner, in place of more traditional rolls.
