Healthy Gluten-Free Muffin Recipe (Orange Almond)

Orange almond muffins gluten-free muffin

This easy gluten-free muffin recipe is my new favorite breakfast option. My healthy gluten-free orange muffin recipe is one of the most popular recipes from this cookbook. I have been loving eating gluten-free muffins for fall too. This is one of my favorite recipes from my cookbook, Beauty Nutrition Index Cookbook. I tried to find a striking balance between the orange flavor and almond flavor, and I think I fully achieved this because this flavor combination is out of this world. My gluten-free muffins are always a hit in any household. The combination of the orange and almonds is delicious, bright, and refreshing.

I hope your family enjoys these as much as mine does.
