We have a group of dear friends we meet with weekly in what we call a house church. We get together. We share life. We share a meal. Our kids play, fight, cry, giggle, and love on each other. All the while we share our hearts with each other and try to be people that love on and encourage and support one another. It's a beautiful thing. In our little house church pod there are several who have gone gluten free over the years so it's been a natural progression for me to learn to make things in a way that is available for all to eat. Even though I'm not a huge fan of baking I've ventured off into a bit of gluten free baking. It's a fun new challenge, and I am always up for a new adventure.
1 cup (1/3 each of sweet sorghum, buckwheat, & tapicoa flours)(regular flour is always an option)
3/4 cup oats
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp sea salt
3 TBS ground flaxseeds
1 TBS ground chia seeds
3 TBS raw honey, maple syrup, or brown rice syrup
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 cup applesauce (unsweetened)
1/2 cup non-dairy milk
juice of 1 orange
zest of 1 orange
3/4 cup chopped pecans, walnuts, or almonds
1 cup chopped fresh cranberries
Mix flax seeds, chia seeds, oil, applesauce, milk, sweetener, orange zest, and the juice of 1 orange together in separate bowl.
Combine the wet and dry mixtures. Fold in nuts and cranberries.
Pour into muffin tins. (FYI---reusable muffin cups make an awesome little Christmas gift!)
Bake at 350 for 18-20 minutes.
Enjoy some vegan, granulated sugar-free, gluten-free muffins! :)
Have a beautiful Christmas!
Grace & Peace to you!!
