Gluten-free baking certainly holds its set of challenges, but that doesn’t mean delicious baked goods can’t be made without that wheat protein that gives so many of us trouble.

Thankfully, it is possible to make gluten-free muffins flavorful, moist, and also gum- and rice-free.

Gluten free success

A combination of gluten-free flours is your best start towards a good crumb.

Using some whole grain millet and oat flour with a bit of tapioca and garbanzo flour gives a good balance.

A bit of sweetener, plenty of cinnamon, and a good dose of chopped apple seals the deal.

Like many gluten-free baked goods, these muffins are best when cooled completely.
