Is cheese gluten free?
The short answer is yes, cheese is gluten free….BUT, you ALWAYS want to read the labels. Highly processed cheeses (think Cheeze Whiz types of cheese) may contain gluten.

Tips to making this easy gluten free savoury muffin recipe:
- Use my recommended gluten free flour blend. Flour matters and not all flours contain gluten free grains that bake up light and fluffy. A bean flour based gluten free flour will not work.
- If you do use a different gluten free flour, make sure it contains xanthan gum. If it doesn’t, add 1 teaspoon.
- Do not over mix the muffin batter. The secret to light and fluffy muffins is to just mix the wet and dry ingredients enough to blend them. Over mixing will cause your muffins to be more dense.

Tools You Need To Make This Recipe:
