Remember my Mmmmm Muffins? Recipe using the New Bake Mix

Here is the recipe using the Splendid Gluten-Free Low-Carb Bake Mix  - I added an extra egg.  I think that was the only change.  This is a delicious muffin - the spices and flavoring are perfect!


CINNAMON CHOCOLATE CHIP MUFFINS
Lovely muffins!  I’ve used a combination of raisins snipped in half and chopped walnuts in these muffins too, but that pushes the carbs up.
