Gluten-Free Flax Seed Muffins with Buttermilk, Ghee, & Spices


Gluten Free Flaxseed Muffins with Buttermilk Ghee and Spices

These gluten-free muffins are tender, aromatic, healthy and delicious! They're great with hot chai tea or coffee, fresh, seasonal fruit, yogurt, nut butters and additional ghee for spreading.

The recipe makes 12-15 muffins. If you don't have buttermilk on hand, blend 1/2 cup yogurt with 1/2 cup water to use as a substitute. Or add 1 tbsp lemon juice to a measuring cup, pour in some milk to equal 1 cup, and let it sit for 5 minutes before adding to the recipe.
