Snow Day Gingerbread Muffins December 10, 2013

It’s very snowy out there – I made some simple, gluten-free, vegan muffins with the warming gingerbread spices that are so fitting for a cold day! Enjoy!

Gluten-Free Vegan

Quantity: 6

Size: RegularImage




1/3 cup gluten-free rolled oats

1/3 cup tapioca flour

1/3 cup brown rice flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum

1/4 teaspoon sea salt

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 cup brown sugar

3 tablespoons liquid coconut oil

3 tablespoons plain nondairy milk

3 tablespoons blackstrap molasses

2 tablespoons unsweetened applesauce

1 tablespoon orange zest

1 teaspoon ginger

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 teaspoon white vinegar

3/4 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and oil a regular 12-muffin pan. Grind the oats in a food processor or blender. Combine the oats with the flours, baking powder, xanthan gum, salt and baking soda. In a separate bowl, combine the sugar, coconut oil, milk, molasses, applesauce, orange zest, spices, vanilla and vinegar and mix until integrated. Combine the dry and wet mixtures and stir until just combined. Spoon the mixture evenly into the pan. Bake 20 minutes.
