Delicious stuffing can be the highlight of a meal. This simply made gluten free apple spinach stuffing is made into muffins. The apples and spinach put a lovely fall twist on this amazing stuffing. It is moist and light with a crispy topping. Because of the selection of ingredients we have used, it is healthier than traditional bread stuffing. This savoury muffin makes a wonderful addition to turkey, chicken or pork and is just the thing for mopping up gravy the next day
