Apple Sauce Muffins

I have taken a rather long break from blogging. Many a times, in the last one and a half years, I have felt so discouraged to try new recipes. With my son's already existing food allergies (brown rice, barley and oats) and with hubby's newly diagnosed wheat and milk intolerances it was not the easiest task to put a meal together. Finally the pity party is over and I celebrate it with this absolutely delicious gluten free and dairy free muffin. Thanks to family and friends who kept me motivated. Stay tuned, more recipes are to come.

2. Buckwheat - 1/2 cup
