  1. Gluten free flour mix that contains chickpea flour, will yield best muffin texture.
  2. Batter will be rather dry until lemon water is added, just keep stirring once lemon water is added, allowing for lemon to react with baking soda, until more smooth and runny batter is achieved.
  3. Rosemary can be replaced with Thyme, if desired.
