Honey Jalepeno Corn Muffins 2

Every good bowl of soup needs a matching muffin.  For me, this one hits the spot, especially with anything Mexican.  There’s a subtle, yet flavorful combination of sweet honey and spicy jalapeno.

We paired this muffin with our Savory Southwest Chili, but they would be perfect for any soup needing a extra kick.

The ground flax seed and almond mixture will act as your binding agent, like your egg would.  When you eat this corn muffin, you’ll be amazed at how fluffy and moist they are!

Here in South Carolina, we are preparing for our first snow this year, and we just made two batches of these along with two batches of soup to munch on the next few days…..

Notes
1. For nut allergies, feel free to substitute rice or hemp milk. I make my own almond milk, but you can buy it. Just make sure it is unsweetened for this recipe.
2. You can buy oat flour, but if you have a high powered blender, you can make your own out of gluten-free oats by putting them in the blender and blending on high for about 10 seconds. I find it easier to do that than to buy oat flour, since I don't use that very often.

Apple Cinnamon Muffins 2

Gluten-free baking is tricky, it’s tough, and it’s time consuming.  But sometimes, you just hit the jackpot.

These muffins are incredible.  For my gluten-free friends (or heck, our dairy, egg, nut, or soy free friends, too), you really just won’t believe how tasty these are without the traditional ingredients.  For our other friends, you’ll be so surprised how hearty and flavorful food can be without some of the things you are used to!

I don’t know how to convert these to “regular” muffins because each ingredient plays a role in making the gluten-free flour work.  I challenge you to make these exactly like the recipe and be pleasantly surprised at how gluten-free can be amazing.  Maybe it’ll stop getting such a bad rap!

For those on the Elimination Diet, I hope these will breathe new life in your lungs.  I know how hard it is to find tasty treats without eggs, gluten, dairy, or tree nuts. For the Eos, hopefully you can adjust based to your ‘safe’ foods or have something to look forward to!

Between my husband, Beckham (the only one of our children who can eat these), and me, I know these won’t last long.  But if you are cooking these for one or two, feel free to pop them in the freezer and take them out as needed!  Enjoy!
