Gluten Free Pistachio and Currant Muffins

Enhance your breakfast with pistachios and currants in these tasty, healthy oatmeal muffins. Pistachios are higher in protein, lower in fat and calories than other nuts and one of the few nuts that contain most of the nutrients essential for total health. Black currants contain 4 times more vitamin C than an orange and double the amount of antioxidants than blueberries. You will be pleasantly surprised how light and moist these muffins are since typical oatmeal muffins tend to be heavy and dry

Why stick to plain oatmeal when you can indulge in these tasty and healthy gluten free pistachio and currant muffins. Since these muffins pack a lot of healthy nutrients they make a superb snack and provide you with lasting energy. These allergy friendly muffins are also egg-free and dairy-free
