Granny Smith Cinnamon Muffins

Gluten free baking can sometimes feel like a guessing game!  Sometimes I try substituting gluten free ingredients into a regular recipe and it just doesn't work. But sometimes it does!   

David Venable from QVC shared a great muffin recipe, and it was so easy to make it gluten free just by substituting in gluten free flour! And the muffins turned out so yummy!! 

Here's the recipe:
  • 3 cups all-purpose gluten free flour (I use Betty Crocker GF Rice Flour Blend)
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2/3 cups vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cups milk
  • 3 Granny Smith apples, peeled and grated

  • Preheat the oven to 375°F. Grease a muffin pan. 

  • Mix flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, and cinnamon in a large bowl. Stir with spoon till combined.

  •  Add the oil, eggs, and milk. With a hand mixer beat till combined, but don't over mix. 

  • Pour in the apples and stir them in gently with a spoon.  

  • Spoon the batter into muffin pan.

     Sprinkle just a little more cinnamon on each muffin before cooking.

     Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the cupcakes are set.

    This recipe makes a LOT of muffins :) I made 12 and had batter left over!

    Remove from oven and allow to cool a little.
