Gluten-Free Walnut Muffins with Dried Fruit Bits

Yesterday, I wanted a muffin instead of my usual omelet or cereal for breakfast.  Of course it needed to be gluten-free and also have a dense, rich texture with crunchy nuts and chewy dried fruit in it. This gluten-free walnut muffin recipe was the result.

Since I had a package of Pamela’s Baking and Pancake Mix in my pantry, I decided I’d use that.  Now, I’d never used this before so I was really interested in how the muffins I planned to make would turn out.

And, I’m really glad I made them because they turned out great!  They were quick and easy to make and I’m sure you’ll enjoy them as much as my family and I did.

Here’s my version of the muffins on Pamela’s Baking and Pancake Mix package.
