Easy Chocolate & Raspberry Gluten Free Muffin Recipe

7 August 2014

Our world famous (in Wellington) muffins sell out so quickly we thought we better share the recipe, so here's one of our customer favourites: gluten free chocolate and raspberry muffins.  This muffin recipe is not only gluten free but also dairy and egg free (making it vegan too) and nut free as well.  It's easy to put together and makes delicious muffins which are safe for a lot of people with allergy issues.
