Gluten Free Apple Walnut Muffins
For more recipes and tidbits please join me on my
Facebook Gluten Free Page:
Gluten Free Apple Walnut Muffins:
In a large bowl with a wire Whisk:
2 Cups Gluten Free Flour (***See Foot Note***)
1/3 Cup Sugar
1 TBL. Baking Powder
½ tsp Salt
½ tsp. Xanthan Gum
¾ tsp. Cinnamon
1 Cup Apples
½ Cup Walnuts
Add to the Flour Mixture with a Wooden Spoon
In a Medium bowl Combine with a wire whisk:
1 Cup Milk
1/3 Cup Oil
Add to the Flour and Apple mixture until combined. Do not over mix.
Line a muffin tin with cup cake liners or spray with cooking spray.
I use an ice cream scoop to help evenly measure out the muffins.
Top each muffin with a mixture of Cinnamon and Sugar
Bake in a 400* Pre-Heated Oven
For about 20 minutes.
I use a digital thermometer inserted into the center of the muffins. When it reaches an internal temperature of 205* the muffins are done. Cool in the pan on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Then remove
from the pan and cool on the rack.
I freeze my muffins after they are completely cooled.
You can use the recipe below for Homemade Gluten Free flour mix
or buy a Pre-made Gluten Free Flour Mix
If your using a Pre-made Gluten Free Flour Mix check to see if it has Xanthan Gum,
if it does then you do not need to add Xanathan Gum to the Recipe.
Gluten Free Homemade Flour Mix for:
cookies, muffins, bars, brownies cakes, quick & yeast breads and biscuits
I got this recipe at the Gluten Free Expo
2 1/4 Cups Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Brown Rice Flour
1/4 Cup Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Potato Starch
2/3 Cup Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Tapioca Starch
3/4 Cup Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Sweet Rice Flour
1/3 Cup Cornstarch
Measure all the ingredients into a container. I used a spoon to lightly mix it together then put the cover on and shake well.
(Making sure its a tight fitting cover)
The original recipe called to add 2 tsp. Xanthan Gum
I did not do that, I like to add mine to each recipe individually.
Taylor Pro Kitchen Waterproof Digital Thermometer:
I used a digital thermometer to check the bread for when its done. Bake until 205*-210* in the center of the bread.
Its also great to check the temperature of the milk and water before adding the yeast. Its a helpful gadget.
