Apple Spice, Red Fife Muffins (Dairy, Egg and Refined Sugar Free)

I have been exploring some new grains in my baking.  One that my daughter has used in a previous recipe Blueberry, Cranberry Red Fife Muffins.  Organic Red fife flour Canada's heritage wheat flour, which was introduced to in the 1840's.    It is a gluten grain, however it is much lower in gliadin (a protein present in wheat gluten) which makes this flour much easier to digest for those with gluten sensitivities.  I have been told this the only wheat some people can eat.  

Red Fife flour has not been altered by synthetic compounds, chemicals or GMO's. We enjoy its flavour and find it be a great flour for breads and hearty muffins.  It is definitely a great compliment to the apple and spices in these muffins.  We enjoyed these for breakfast or as a snack with a cup of tea!
