- 1 cup almond meal/flour
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1/2 cup sweet rice flour
- 1/2 cup + 2 Tbsp potato starch
- 1/2 cup coconut sugar
- 1/2 cup dried cranberries or raisins
- 1/4 cup tapioca starch

- 1 Tbsp gluten free baking powder
- 1 tsp xanthan gum
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 200 / 400°.
In a mixing bowl, combine all of the dry ingredients with a whisk.
In your stand mixer, lightly beat together the milk and eggs on a low speed.
Add the vanilla.
Pour the coconut oil into the dry ingredients and gently mix with a fork.
Add this mixture into the milk, egg, and vanilla mixture and mix on a low speed until just moistened and combined.
Gently fold in the cranberries or raisins.
Spoon batter into a 12-cup greased muffin tin. The cups will be almost full.
Bake for 18 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean.
Cool in the pan for five minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. YUMMO!
This was Recipe #27 in the "Gluten Free Baking With KitchenAid" event.
All of Linda's wonderful recipes are gluten free, dairy free, and soy free. My kind of recipes! I LOVE any recipes made with almond flour, and Linda beautifully mixes protein and starchy flours together to create a lovely moist muffin with a gorgeous flavour. I used cranberries in my batch, but you could also use raisins. Either way, these muffins are delicious!
