These lemon rosemary muffins are gluten free, grain free, and paleo. They are a savory muffin, not a sweet muffin, and can be used in place of bread or rolls to accompany a meal.
They are made with almond flour and don’t require any xanthan gum. One thing I especially like about using almond flour is that the baked goods stay moist. As you can see, these muffins also rise nicely, and the lemon and rosemary flavors are noticeable without being too strong.

Crush the dried rosemary using a mortar and pestle or by placing it in a plastic bag and rolling over it with a rolling pin.
