Gluten-Free Carrot Oatmeal Muffins







 I often find inspiration for my recipes from regular bakers. These muffins are no exception; they were inspired by The Best Ever Muffins by Loving My Domestic Life.  I  replaced the flour with gluten-free flours, substituted brown rice syrup for the sugar, and removed the oil. Then I added grated carrots, some more spices, and chopped pecans.

  1. Sounds great! I've been wanting to make some sort of carrot muffin. Although I'm impressed you can take a regular recipe and convert it to gluten free. I always have to start with a gluten free recipe. Whenever I try to convert old favorite recipes to gluten free, it becomes a mess.

    Love this recipe! Its fun to find a recipe that is already gluten free, refined sugar free, and even dairy free! I usually have to make some sort of alternation for myself when using others recipes. That means I'll really have to try this one! :)

    Alea–These look and sound great! They definitely meet my current way of eating, too. :-) But, now I must admit, I haven't tried brown rice syrup yet. Where do you find it? Online? Health food store? Could one substitute honey instead do you think?



  4. I buy brown rice syrup at my local Whole Foods Market. (I use Lundberg Sweet Dreams Organic Brown Rice Syrup, which is certified gluten free.) It has a lower glycemic index than most sweeteners, it has a milder flavor, and it is less expensive than buying local honey for me. So it is a win-win-win IMHO.

    I will write a post on this tomorrow with links, because it makes a nice crisp cookie and is wonderful when used to make toffee!

    But, yes, you can substitute honey if you want. :D

    Thanks so much for the info, Alea. No Whole Foods near me, but perhaps the Wegmans in town may carry it. We raise bees so we have a neverending supply of wonderful honey, but a lower glycemic index is always good. :-) I'll look forward to your post!


  6. Well if you don't have to pay for honey, then I would use that!
