Gluten-free veggie muffins

These tasty little muffins are a great snack to eat on the go or when you want something savoury to tide you over until your next meal. Plus, they’re gluten free, which is perfect for anyone out there who is intolerant or has family members who are. They’re super tasty and have plenty of fibre thanks to the veggies and the oat flour, which brings a whole new flavour into the mix. You can add whatever vegetables you like to the mix and if you want to make it a non-veggie version try adding some diced ham or cooked bacon. They especially delicious warmed up, so zap them in the microwave for a few seconds and top with a little butter before eating. Enjoy!
