I am posting this to inform anyone else with Celiac about a fairly informative website http://www.toadhaven.com This site is a homeschooling family in VA and there are people in the family with gluten intolerance. There are lots of links to other sites about recipes/gluten free restaurant options and lots of other fun and educational sites for young people. I look forward to trying this yummy sounding recipe and will be back to add to this review.
Delicious!! I'd never know these muffins were gluten free if I didn't make them (and I'm the one in the house that DOES eat gluten). I used a flour mix that includes 3 parts cornstarch, 3 parts brown rice flour, 2 parts soy flour and 1 part masa harina. I only made the pecan/maple syrup topping, and it was incredible! Thanks! This one's definitely a keeper!
EXCELLENT gluten-free muffin recipe. My husband says he'd never have known they were gluten-free if I hadn't told him. I've made it as written and it's a 5-star recipe. I've also changed a bit and this is how we now make them. I use coconut sugar instead of brown sugar in equal exchange. Coconut sugar has a glycemic index of only 35! We also use coconut oil instead of another oil. We've used butter but since we get so much butter in other items, I decided to start using coconut oil and it's YUMMY. Coconut oil is very antibacterial, anti-fungal and anti-microbial. We eat a lot of raw fruits and veggies and so all of that ANIT-EVERYTHING is a good, healthy addition to our diet. If I don't have any of our homemade flour mix, I typically use the GF mix you can find at Costco. These muffins are AWESOME! Thank you SO MUCH for this delicious treat. Oh yeah, and they freeze well. We make triple or quadruple batches and bring some to our cabin so they're in the freezer, ready to thaw when we get there. Mmm...
Awesome recipe!! It seems to be a very forgiving recipe, as well. I didn't have any powdered buttermilk or canola oil so I used olive oil instead and the muffins turned out great. I used vegan cream cheese for the frosting and it tasted sooo good. I ended up with 24 cupcakes so I gave some to a co-worker whose son is GF and she tried one which turned into two. I'll be making these again:) Thanks for sharing, Andrew!!
These are awesome!!
