Honey Almond Muffins

I recently was introduced to Gluten Free Mommy's website, which holds a plethora of gluten-free recipes written and shared by a woman who has been gluten-free for 3 1/2 years. On the site, I found a delicious recipe, Orange Almond Muffins. And bonus, it's easy to make this even without a mixer! I've modified it for my own pleasure:

1/4 cup tapioca flour
1/2 cup rice flour
1/2 cup sorghum flour
1/2 cup ground almonds (finely ground with my blender)
1 tsp xantham gum
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup sugar
"big dash" of salt
2 eggs, beaten
1/3 cup honey
3/4 cup milk
4 tbsp butter, melted

Preheat oven to 350F and spray muffin pan with cooking spray (I like the 6-muffin "big muffin" pan). Mix the dry ingredients together in a bowl using a wooden spoon. Mix the wet ingredients together well, and add to the dry ingredients. Fold repeatedly until all dry ingredients are moistened, and pour batter into muffin pan, filling each well halfway. Bake for 20 or so minutes, however long it takes to be able to put a knife in the middle of the muffin and have it come out clean.

They sound good but I don't have any of those ingredients in my kitchen! Obviously I'm not gluten free...

You can probably make it just-as-yummy with regular flour. Maybe try it with 1 1/4c flour and 1tsp baking soda instead of the xantham gum and Gfree flours (but use the almond meal... it adds taste and nutrition!). It's definitely not-so-convenient to be gluten free, because the flours are more expensive, but I bet you could modify!
