Lovely Lemon Muffins That Are Even Gluten Free

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Lovely Lemon Muffins That Are Even Gluten Free

Healthy Muffins – Gluten Free – Lemon Muffins

Exciting news! There are big, huge yellow lemons on our very own fruit tree that once stood only a foot tall three years ago. Now this lovely lemon tree towers above our heads with fat, beautiful lemons. Therefore, I had to start baking with lemons!

Making home made lemon muffins you want to use freshly squeezed lemons, because they give your muffins a fresh taste and  an amazing smell that is so refreshing, bright and delicious even after they are made. There is a slight after taste of lemon, that leaves you wanting more.

Have you ever eaten home made lemon muffins? Ohhhhh, if you have not, you have to try making them. I loved them and so did my family! Read More→

Guest Blogger- Cookbook Author – “Cooking with Coconut Flour”

When I first started experimenting with gluten-free baking I quickly became discouraged. It required four or five different types of flour plus an assortment of other ingredients like xanthan gum, vinegar, powdered milk, etc. Baking was a chore and the end result wasn’t always as I expected.

That’s why I fell in love with coconut flour—a relatively new gluten-free flour. Unlike other gluten-free flours you don’t need to combine it with a dozen other ingredients in order to make delicious tasting baked goods. Baking with this wonderful flour is relatively simple. 

Basically all you need is coconut flour, eggs, and oil. Mix them in a bowl and bake. What could be simpler? And the end result is comparable in quality to products made with wheat flour.
