Cinnamon-Raisin Muffins with Streusel Topping

These muffins smelled so good while they were cooking. The first words out of my mouth after the first bite were literally, "Holy moly! These are amazing!!!" I haven't had real muffins in several years, so I tried them out on unsuspecting "normal" folks. I took a dozen of them to some friends, and they went nuts over them. No one could tell they were gluten free. They were light and fluffy, flavorful, and exceptionally delicious. —Brandi B. Frederick
