Cinnamon Spice Muffins

My friend gave me this recipe when we started eating gluten-free and reduced-dairy foods earlier this year. My daughter has CF and is 12 years old. Switching to a gluten-free diet has helped significantly with her GI issues and discomfort. I am always on the lookout for easy and healthy gluten-free and no-dairy recipes and this is one that I use often. This is a recipe that can be easily changed such as using pumpkin instead of applesauce. Add in chocolate chips or a little cocoa powder and you have a chocolate muffin.
