Basic Muffin Mix GF/CF


First posted 6-8-08. Reposted with pleasure. Photographs are getting better too!


Okay, my sister--the food epicure--who does not bake much loves these!

The muffin mix is easy with the my whole-grain flour GF mix. I mix up the flour in a container and keep it on the counter.

I mix up the following and stick it in a ziplock to make muffins later. We eat some version of them daily it seems.

1 1/2 cups of a gf flour mix (I use my 8-flour mix) Remember, the more diversified the flours, the merrier.
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. xanthum gum (or guar gum)
1/2 cup sugar (I have substituted 1/4 cup honey)
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice
chocolate chips

Then I add the wet ingredients.  Mix these in a two cup measuring cup.

A scoop of pumpkin, applesauce, or a smashed banana (maybe 1/3 to 1/2 cup)
1 egg or an egg substitute
1/4 cup oil
1 tsp. vanilla
and with enough milk or milk substitute to equal 2 cups of wet ingredients (you can use non-dairy creamer)

Add some part buttermilk if you have it.

Stir together til smooth. Bake in small muffin tins 12-15 minutes at 350 degrees

Today I made it casien free by adding a half cup of ground flax in the dry ingredients and using coconut milk. Turned out great!
