Make gluten free apple cinnamon muffins by swapping out just one ingredient!

How To Make Gluten Free Apple Cinnamon Muffins

If you have a gluten sensitivity, Celiac Disease, or you are allergic to gluten, it is so easy to convert this to a gluten free apple cinnamon muffin recipe! 

All you need to do is swap out the regular all-purpose flour for gluten free all-purpose flour.

As always, double check all of your other packaged ingredients to make sure that they are all wheat and gluten free.

If you are cooking for someone who cannot have gluten, be very careful, and do not bake these muffins around anything that has gluten in it, so that you can avoid cross-contamination.
