Gluten-Free Choc Chip Oatmeal Muffins

Rated as 4.39 out of 5 Stars

"I took the original recipe found on this site and changed it up to be gluten-free and lower in sugar/fats. These muffins were highly praised, thinking these were too good to be gluten-free! I prefer to cut the fats and sugars in half by using applesauce and agave nectar."
