Gluten-Free Walnut Muffins with Dried Fruit Bits

Yesterday, I wanted a muffin instead of my usual omelet or cereal for breakfast.  Of course it needed to be gluten-free and also have a dense, rich texture with crunchy nuts and chewy dried fruit in it. This gluten-free walnut muffin recipe was the result.

Since I had a package of Pamela’s Baking and Pancake Mix in my pantry, I decided I’d use that.  Now, I’d never used this before so I was really interested in how the muffins I planned to make would turn out.

And, I’m really glad I made them because they turned out great!  They were quick and easy to make and I’m sure you’ll enjoy them as much as my family and I did.

Here’s my version of the muffins on Pamela’s Baking and Pancake Mix package.

Gluten-Free Walnut Muffins with Dried Fruit Bits

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes

Makes about 6 muffins


  • 1-1/4 Cups Gluten Free Baking Mix (like Pamela’s Baking & Pancake Mix) (about 150g.)
  • 1/3 Cup Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup Dried Fruit Bits (or diced Dried Peaches, Apricots, Apples or Dates)
  • 1/2 Cup Broken Walnuts
  • 1 Egg
  • 3/4 Cup Water
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla, optional


Preheat oven to 350°F.

Grease muffin tins.

In a medium bowl, stir together the ingredients.

Fill muffin tins 2/3 full.

Bake about 18-20 minutes or until muffins are browned and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Makes about 6 muffins.
