carrot-apple muffins

20 Oct

muffinit’s been a long week. i made these for eli’s lunch after he’d been sick. i was thinking it would be easy on his stomach, unfortunately his school has some stupid rule that the kids have to eat their healthy food before junk food. i personally think it’s none of the schools business telling kids what to eat when. anyways eli thought these were cupcakes so all he ate for lunch was a cheese stick and some yogurt. needless to say the first thing he said to me after school was “mom i’m starving!”

carrot-apple muffins

2/3 cup sorghum flour
1/3 cup tapioca starch flour
1/4 cup flax seed meal
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp guar gum
2 carrots roughly chopped
2 small apples peeled, cored and chopped
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
1/2 cup sugar
1 jumbo egg
4 tbs olive oil
2 ounces candied ginger (homemade see previous post)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla


put ginger in food processor and blend till it starts to ball up. put in mixing bowl. put carrots, apples, and lemon juice in food processor. mix till very finely chopped. mix into bowl with ginger. add sugar, oil, vanilla and egg. mix well. mix dry ingredients together then add to wet ingredients. blend for 2-3 minutes. line muffin tins and add batter. bake 12-15 mins. use pick test to see if done. (toothpick will come out clean)  as with almost everything gluten free do not over cook.
