Cinnamon Muffins

I have to be on a gluten-free diet all the time. I was diagnosed with a celiac disease ten years ago. It was so hard to accept it at first since I can't eat pizza or cake. Now I'm happy and healthy with my special diet. I have a wonderful gluten-free recipes on an internet and few books of gluten free recipes.
