sunday muffins…gluten free and vegan carrot raisin…

june was a crazy, crazy month for us! in just the span of four weeks we finished schools, celebrated two important birthdays, made it through alara’s really important final exams, closed out alegra’s pony competition season, celebrated the girls birthdays (again!), celebrated asya’s graduation and went to the boat for a rather hectic vacation!!!

not surprisingly, in the midst of all this excitement i not only forgot to read on two Sundays- but i also completely missed posting one of the best muffin recipes we have made yet!

I am so sorry! not only for the confusion, but also for having kept your from these amazing muffins! they are hands down one of the best things i have had for breakfast in a long time- especially now that the weather here in istanbul is getting really hot, these are a filling but light and easy way to start your day. 🙂
