Morning Muffins (Gluten-Free)

“When I first went gluten-free I really craved something bread-like. I created this adaptation as a bread-style alternative to have with my morning coffee. It can be enjoyed any time of the day.” – Calla Ferre

  • 1/3 Cup Vegetable or Canola Oil
  • 2 Teaspoons Vanilla
  • 2 Cups Carrots Grated

  • Mix dry ingredients together with a wire whisk so that they are well combined.
  • Add milk, vinegar, eggs, butter, oil, and vanilla. Beat together until smooth. Stir in grated carrots and raisins.
  • Bake in greased muffin tins at 420 degrees for 12 to 14 minutes until golden and cooked through. Makes 2 dozen muffins. Equally good when half-rule is made.

This recipe was made with Saco Pantry Cultured Buttermilk Blend, which can be found in the baking aisle. Use it dry; do not add additional water. This is optional, but it does improve the texture.
