First off – DFB is close to hitting a pretty incredible milestone – 750 page views away from 100,000!!!! That is SO crazy – blows my mind and totally humbles me.
Thank you, thank you!
Awhile back I posted a recipe for my FAVORITE muffins in the whole wide world! My mom always made them and they are so tasty, but they weren’t dairy free (and they had shortening in them). She had made them dairy free a couple of times but now they are off travelling for 6 months, so I had to revise them for myself…
Long story short… this is what I came up with and they are fantastic!
