For an easy-to-make, easy-to-eat bread, muffins are among the best, and this recipe for gluten-free muffins is also dairy-free and low in refined sugars.
I made these muffins for my gluten-free diet and was surprised by how much my gluten-loving husband liked them. He enjoyed the sweet flavor of the honey and applesauce and the texture of the muffin with its dried fruit, nuts and whole grain rice flour.
Honey drizzled over warm cornbread…wonderful! Raspberry preserves spread over a another wedge…delicious!
During a week of making extra-easy meals, I really enjoyed a simple pan of crusty cornbread. Some of it went with soup. I toasted another wedge in the oven to go with chili and beans. The last piece was pan-grilled to go with eggs for breakfast.
Most people don’t realize that pumpkins are loaded with Vitamin A – over 100% of the daily, FDA-recommended value is in just a half-cup serving — plus good amounts of Vitamins C and E, iron and fiber, to name a few of its other benefits. This low-carb, low-fat nutritional powerhouse vegetable is a natural to combine with a low glycemic sweetener like agave nectar.
I made a batch of these gluten-free pumpkin muffins with agave this week. And, I’m glad I did!
They rose well and have a smooth, attractive crust. And, they hold their texture when broken open, not crumbling apart like some muffins do.
The aroma filling the kitchen draws him every time, ready to eat before he even sees how good this quiche looks with its dark green spinach, golden cheeses and tomato topper. My hubby likes this often for breakfast or lunch. The recipe is gluten-free and low carbohydrate naturally, without using special ingredients.
Sandwich Petals, the gluten-free 10-grain oval flatbread that comes in three flavors — Agave Grain, Spinach Garlic Pesto and Chimayo Red Chile — look like they’d make beautiful wraps for lunch. When I found some last week, I knew what we’d be having for lunch the next day.
