Can Gluten Cause Allergies?
There is increasing evidence of gluten sensitivity in some individuals.
Gluten sometimes causes symptoms in people who are not celiac or do not have wheat allergies.
The symptoms include digestive issues, bloating, diarrhea, constipation, abdominal pain, headaches, feeling tired, depression, weight loss, etc.
Researchers are still trying to discover the exact cause of this condition.
Listen, you don’t have to be gluten free or dairy free to make these gluten free dairy free raspberry chocolate chip muffins. In fact, you don’t even have to make this a gluten free or dairy free recipe.
“Gosh, how many times is she going to say gluten free and dairy free?”
I know, it’s getting ridiculous, but the truth is you can totally use all purpose flour, milk, butter, whatever you want and these will still turn out. In fact, you could even do half butter half yogurt or oil and these would be awesome muffins.
We wanted to bring an option to breakfast for those who are on a special diet or have chosen to eliminate certain foods from their diet. Dairy and soy are in EVERYTHING so if you’re one of those breastfeeding moms that has had to eliminate dairy (you should always eliminate soy as well if you have to eliminate dairy) like I have you know that breakfast can be a hassle.
And gluten free is totally easier to take on than it used to be but for those just putting their toes in the water this is a great recipe to try out. The muffins are soft and full of flavor and the tiny sprinkling of turbinado sugar on top may not be completely necessary for everyone but we absolutely love those sugary crystals.
Now don’t worry, I’ve heard you loud and clear that you want to see more variety in the breakfast category so not only are we sharing a gluten free dairy free muffin today but I searched the web and found this AMAZING savory Ultimate Breakfast BLT that is perfection for those of you that don’t want so much sweet at the breakfast table This beauty was found on The Cookie Rookie who happens to be one of my current favorites so check it out!
