Gluten Free Apple Cinnamon Chia Muffins
It's a weird feeling, driving to work on a winter morning. The sky is still dark, the air is chilly and the steering wheel is ice cold until the heat kicks in. This time of year anything with cinnamon seems to at least help warm our spirits if not our bodies.

This month's recipe is great as a snack or as a grab and go breakfast for those mornings when you are in a hurry.
