Truly flourless muffins!

I'm of the mindset that if one doesn't go on a gluten free diet one will never notice the "gluten haze" or how they feel bad when they do eat gluten.  So, I've avoided the trend up till a couple of months ago when I decided it was worth a try if it helped my eczema which seems to worsen with the birth of each child.

This recipe, from my mother, has been my favorite treat since the new diet (which I'm giving three months to see if it helps.  So far it's not).   GFers enjoy!!!
