Gluten-Free Goji Muffins

Sweet goji berries and hardy teff flour pair perfectly in these gluten-free, vegan muffins. They also include organic, unsweetened applesauce and just a tablespoon of agave nectar for natural sweetness without unrefined sugar. Teff and quinoa flours are naturally high in protein and fiber, and give these muffins a nutty, satisfying flavor.
