RECIPE Gluten Free Carrot Cake Muffins


I found this recipe on www.chow.com - my new favourite place for Gluten free recipes.
Just search 'Gluten Free' under recipes and you get loads of hits.

Some of the ingredients and instructions in this recipe where aimed towards Americans so I have made a couple of amendments.

INGREDIENTS

3 eggs
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 tablespoons butter (melted)
1/4 cup coconut flour (sifted)
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 shredded carrots
1/4 cup raisins
3/4 cup walnuts
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
Cream cheese for the topping!

METHOD

Using a mixer, combine eggs, sugar, butter, salt, cinnamon, vanilla.
Slowly add sifted coconut flour and baking soda.
Pulse raisins and walnuts in food process or until coarsely ground.
Fold in carrots, raisins, and walnuts into mixture.
Pour into muffin tin.
Bake at 200 for 25 minutes.

Makes 6 muffins.
Note: Use muffin liners since these are notorious for sticking to the bottom no matter how much you oil and flour them.


I haven't made this yet, nor have I seen coconut flour for sale so I will investigate and report back soon!

  1. Hi Debra
    When you state 'vanilla', is this vanilla sugar or vanilla flavouring, or essence, or something completely different?
    Many thanks.
