Adventures in GF muffins
I totally thought these muffins were a fail...
Turns out I'm just super impatient because once they cooled they popped out of the tins without any issues.
They were still pretty crumbly though, but nothing like the first picture. I have to say I was really pleased with the texture and taste of these muffins. John ate one up and it wasn't until after he said he liked them that I told him they were gluten free. I'm bringing some into work tomorrow for my good friend who is allergic to gluten, I'll let you know what she thinks :) --UPDATE: she loves them!! Woohoo!!!
The centers all did collapse, but I just see it as an excuse to put a glob of ice cream on top to hide it don't you?
Super easy to whip up and not a long list of specialty ingredients to buy either!
SPECIAL NOTE: these were made for someone with a gluten allergy not celiac's disease... if you are making something for someone with celiac's disease double check with all ingredient lists to make sure there are no trace elements of gluten.
Gluten Free Coconut Cinnamon Muffins
recipe adapted from The Joy of Clean Eating makes 11 muffins
1 cup brown rice flour
1/2 cup sucanat (don't have any? try using 1/4 white + 1/2 brown sugar)
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup skim milk
1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 tbsp apple butter
3 tbsp canola oil
unsweetened coconut to top (1/2 tsp per muffin)
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl add in the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon. Mix well and set aside.
Beat together the milk, vanilla, apple cider and apple butter in a small bowl
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix together. Do NOT over mix. You should have a very liquidy batter.
Place into greased muffin tins and then sprinkle 1/2 tsp of unsweetened coconut on top.
Bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool completely before trying to remove them.
