Gluten-free Made Easy Cookbook Review + GF Apple Cinnamon Streusel Muffins

I'm excited to be reviewing another gluten-free cookbook today: Gluten-Free Made Easy by Christi Silbaugh and Michele Vilseck. It is chock full of delicious-looking recipes, as well as tips and tricks to make converting your kitchen to gluten-free much easier.

I'm always looking for good gluten-free muffins to put in the girls' school lunches, and there was a particularly yummy looking recipe in the book for Apple Cinnamon Streusel Muffins. So perfect for the fall weather we are beginning to have!

Bria made them all herself, and while I think she may not have put enough of the dry ingredients into the streusel topping, they still turned out very tasty. I asked for permission from the publisher to share this recipe with you and they said yes. And when you try them, you'll definitely want to make sure you have the rest of the recipes in this cookbook ASAP!

Delicious apple cinnamon streusel muffins, just in time for fall! Plus a review of Gluten-free Made Easy, a new cookbook full of delicious GF recipes and tips to making your kitchen gluten-free.

  1. I deleted facebook off of my phone a long time ago! Mostly because I had the iphone4 and I didn't have the space for all the pictures I wanted to take and facebook. It was a blessing in disguise as now I have the 5 and I have plenty of room for both facebook and photos but I don't have the desire to put it on! Good luck with your new schedule! Early morning seminary is all I knew in high school and while I wish I could have had it part of my school schedule like they do here, it was a challenge I was happy I accepted and accomplished! Plus early morning seminary looks better on your college application! ;)

  2. Gluten free or not these sound delicious!

  3. I stumbled across your blog a few weeks ago (probably for help cleaning with kids) and have loved your posts about MI. I attended the Houghton branch while I was in high school ('93-'95) though we lived in White Pine. I remember linger longers!

  4. Liegh, how cool! I love meeting people who have lived up here. It's such a special place. And yes, we all love the linger longers! So glad you commented. :)

  5. So far, I don't miss it much at all! And if I REALLY need it, I can just go on my browser, but I haven't really done that. I'm much more productive. :)
