Somewhere along the line I think I've done a version of this recipe (pumpkin choc chip? anyone remember?), but Sarah's looked better. Add the work stress combined with procrastination and suddenly I heard them whispering to me 'try those muffinsssss you'll like 'em!' So there I was at 12:30 this morning when it hits me: I need those muffins. Forget going to bed.
Cut to scene and I'm thawing butter (coincidentally her recipe did not call for butter, but butter rules in my world so I just,well, you get the point), rifling through the cupboards and hoping against all for enough baking soda and gluten-free flour mix. Thankfully everything was in the pantry and I whipped off a batch of these just before crawling into bed with fingers crossed that they'd retain their height come morning. Sometimes gluten-free cakes, uh, not so much.
All I have to say is: wow. These things are hazardous. Gluten-free or not, these muffins are di-vine. Just enough crumble, not too sweet and the perfect size. Around noon I had to hide them or they were at risk of becoming endangered. You guys. Try them. So easy and so good. Wave buh-bye to cereal. They'll only last a day anyway. She sprinkled chocolate chips on hers....lethal!

to partake in muffin baking and consumption. Do you feel like you're in a forest having tea and muffin?
