Gluten-Free Fruity Oat Muffins

These muffins are big on flavour and sure to entice even those who have no trouble with gluten. Play around with the fruit: Try dried blueberries, strawberries, raspberries or chopped apricots. People with gluten sensitivity or celiac disease should not buy dried fruit or nuts from bulk bins, since the products may be cross-contaminated with gluten-containing ingredients from another bin. (People often use the same scoop in different bins.) It is best to buy sealed containers.
