Consider these delightfully gluten free kitchen sink muffins as another recipe revision brought to you by my great Auntie Clara’s wall of cookbooks.
- Very, very versatile
- Can be made without a stand mixer, if needed
This is one of those wholesome muffin recipes that discreetly includes a little bit of everything… except for the kitchen sink. So discreet that my picky eater of a nephew inhaled his muffin.
Given the basis of this recipe, it can go hundreds of different ways. Feel free to adapt as per what is available in your pantry.
