Savory Almond Flour Muffins

I am by no means gluten-free.  I absolutely love bread.  But this recipe just happens to be gluten-free by way of using almond meal instead of flour.  It's savory, chewy, and has a crumb just like a regular muffin.  You can use this base recipe in a variety of ways and add your own flavorings to keep it savory or make it sweet.  In the future I will post my chocolate coconut version.  Stay tuned...
