These muffins make for a fantastic breakfast!  They are filling, healthy, and incredibly tasty!  I got the idea for these muffins from the following pin.

Don’t those look SO good!  Well, after looking at the recipe for these, all I saw was gluten, sugar, dairy. 😦  They look delicious, but I don’t eat a majority of the ingredients that are involved in making them.  However, I was inspired, so I decided to come up with a gluten and dairy free mixed berry muffin that is sweetened with only a bit of honey and stevia.  They turned out great, and completely satisfied my muffin craving!
