Recipe Information

Recipe Created By: Melanie Carver


2/3 cup rice flour
1/2 cup oat flour
1/3 cup tapioca starch
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup milk alternative
1/4 cup oil
1/2 Tbsp vanilla
1/2 to 1 cup cooked amaranth


Mix dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients. Then mix in cooked amaranth. Mix all by hand with a whisk (no mixer required).

Don't will be "grainy".

Oil your muffin pan with safe oil (paper liners generally don't work with this recipe, as they stick to the muffins pretty bad). Fill the pan 3/4 full and then put the blueberries on top (3-5 each).

Bake for about 25 minutes at 350 °F or until muffins are golden and toothpick comes out clean.

Sometimes these fall in the center, sometimes not. Let them cool a bit and use a knife to loosen around the edges, and then they will come out clean. These freeze well so you can save them and have some for breakfast all week.
