I love having a mini muffin pan. It makes the perfect gluten-free mini muffins. If you don’t have one I suggest you get one. They are pretty inexpensive.
These little Gluten-Free Mini Walnut Muffins are dense, slightly sweet, and filling. If you can’t have walnuts, you can always use another high fat nut like pecans. I haven’t tried almonds or macadamia nuts in these gluten-free muffins. Pecans in general are sweeter than walnuts, and don’t have the same acidity level and they are a great substitution for most recipes that call for walnuts.
