Gluten Free Apple Rice Bran Muffins

Every other Sunday, I make a double batch of muffins. I'll freeze half and then use the others for breakfast or quick snacks. This recipe originally came from one of Terry Walters cookbooks. It's been tweaked a ton by the Gluten Free Goddess, AKA Tiffani. Feel free to change it some more. Add a tablespoon of almond butter to a baked muffin and this is a quick, yummy breakfast. You could make my heart swoon by adding a green smoothie to said muffin breakfast.
