Gluten Free Oatmeal Breakfast Muffins
- 2 ¼ cups Whole Rolled Oats * see note
- 1 cup almond flour * see note
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon xanthan gum * see note
- ⅛ teaspoon salt
- 1 ¾ cups almond milk
- 2 large eggs
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil melted
- ¼ cup maple syrup grade B if possible.
- ¼ cup chopped pecans
- 1 cup your favorite chopped fruit
- Preheat the oven to 350º F.
- Spray a muffin baking tin with coconut oil.
- In a large bowl, add all dry ingredients and whisk well.
- In a medium bowl, add all wet ingredients and whisk.
- Pour wet ingredients into the dry ingredients.
- Add chopped fruit and nuts.
- Blend gently until just mixed.
- Don't over mix the batter.
- Bake for 20 minutes or until done.
- It is critical to use certified gluten free oats if you are Celiac. Cross-contamination runs high in regular oats.
- I highly suggest using almond flour and not almond meal. Almond meal is more coarse and will make your donuts grainy.
- Other dairy-free kinds of milk will work but I do not recommend canned coconut milk.
- If you want your muffins to have a domed style top, bake at 425º F for the first 5 minutes then reduce the temperature to 350.
- To test for doneness, insert a toothpick into the center of a muffin. If the toothpick comes out clean, it is done baking. If you see batter or crumbs, the muffins need to bake longer.
- These muffins will keep up to 4 days in an air-tight container, or up to 4 months in the freezer.
