There is something special about making something from scratch and knowing it won't have any strange ingredients. No chemicals or preservatives! These morning tea recipes gluten free will relieve you of worry about what goes into your food because they are healthier than most breakfast options.
1. Lemon and Poppyseed Muffins
- 1/2 cup almond flour or gluten-free flour blend
- Two tablespoons poppyseed meal or ground poppy seeds (optional)
- One teaspoon of baking powder
- One teaspoon of xanthan gum (optional)
Tip: Substitute your favorite Gluten free flour for the whole-wheat pastry flour within the recipe. It will give you a lighter, more delicate muffin texture.
1. Preheat the oven to around 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper liners.
2. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
3. In another large bowl, whisk together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Beat in eggs one at a time until combined well, then beat in vanilla extract or lemon extract if you prefer.
Add lemon zest if using it as well! Add milk or buttermilk if needed to get your batter to the right consistency (I use 2/3 cup of milk). Add poppy seeds and stir to combine thoroughly before adding to the flour mixture.
4. Spread batter evenly among the prepared muffin cups, filling each ⅔ full. Bake for 25 minutes until the tops are golden brown. Remove from oven then allow to cool in pan for 10 minutes before removing from pan onto wire rack
2. Carrot Cake Muffins
Muffins can be a fantastic way to launch yourself into the day. You can make them with any gluten-free flour and sugar, so you can use whatever you have on hand. You could also substitute oil for butter or coconut oil.
- 2 cups all-purpose flour (or gluten-free flour)
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup brown sugar + 2 tbsp honey + 1 egg + 1 tbsp oil or butter + 1 cup grated carrot
- Beat all ingredients together until smooth, then spoon into the lined tin - bake at 350F / 175C for 25 minutes
3. Banana and Cinnamon Muffins
- Mash the bananas In a large bowl using a fork until they are smooth and slightly yellow.
- Stir in the gluten-free flour and cinnamon until well combined. You can use more or less cinnamon, depending on how much you like it.
- Scoop about two tablespoons of batter into each cupcake tin lined with paper liners. Press down gently on each one so that it fills up to the top rim of your muffin tin.
1. Start by preheating your oven to around 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line up a muffin tin with paper baking cups.
2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt until combined. Add the eggs and mashed banana until smooth and homogenous. Stir in the melted butter until just combined. Whisk in the sour cream until well combined. Stir in cinnamon and set aside for 30 minutes to allow it to thicken up a bit.
3. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups so they are two-thirds full. This will ensure that your muffins will rise. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown on top.
