Gluten Free Hearty Oatmeal Muffins

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by lindajeaninsc

These muffins are not too sweet and absolutely delicious, low carb and high fiber because of all the oats. We eat them for breakfast, and pack them in our lunchbox. They are good with cheese and salad for lunch or with yogurt for breakfast. Even the gluten eating members of my family loved them. I found this recipe somewhere as an Oat Pan Bread and converted it to gluten free muffins, so thank you to the original poster.

These turned out well. Devoured with pats of butter. I used white rice flour for the gluten free rice flour & gluten free baking powder instead of cream of tartar which worked well as cream of tartar is a product of the wine industry so we don't consume it. For the salt I used sea salt and guar gum instead of xanthan gum to be corn free. I used demera dark brown sugar, no dried cranberries as I didn't have any and walnuts instead of pecans as that is what I had on hand. For the vanilla I used halal vanilla paste and for the milk I used rice milk mixed with a little yogurt. The oil I used was canola to be soy free. I would make these again for a healthy muffin.
