Gluten Free, Grain Free Raisin “Bran” Muffins

I mentioned the other day that my husband is a wonderful guy. He really is. He’s the kind of guy who will come home after 14 straight days of 12 hour shifts and say, “wow! You look beautiful! What can I do to help around here?” And though I sometimes respond with here take this baby I need to change out of these pajamas” something less wonderful, it’s a great day when I can say “Everything’s done, sit down, I made you muffins. Yesterday was a great day. I made muffins.”

These are a twist on the gluten free, grain free pumpkin muffins I posted the other day. They’re a little dryer and the pumpkin isn’t as noticeable. (Hence, no pumpkin in the name).

I ate mine with a maple cream cheese spread. Not paleo, but tasty enough that I’ve included the recipe below.
