You guys probably know we’re nuts about nuts by now… but you probably don’t all share that obsession – especially where school lunchboxes are involved. And so, we’ve decided to bring on Nut-Free Fridays, to put down the spoon and stretch our boundaries beyond the jar… if only for a day.

These beautiful muffins by Jacqueline Alwill seemed like the perfect start – not a nut in sight, gluten free, refined sugar free and optionally dairy free. But most importantly – delicious, of course.
