As homemakers, we have a lot of jobs to do. Clean, wash laundry, take care of kids, feed everybody. In the “feed everybody” category, I’ve found it really useful to have a few basic recipes on hand or even memorized ones that I can pull out and make alterations to in various situations. It saves a lot of time and stress in deciding what to make.

This gluten-free muffin recipe is one of those. It’s very basic, which makes it really easy to alter just by adding fruit or chocolate chips – this morning, we used blackberries. Or maybe some spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, or cloves. How about adding a streusel topping or even just cinnamon sugar on top for a change? You could even bake it in an 8×8 cake pan and turn this into a coffee cake recipe.

So many possibilities for just one recipe! 

I was just going over my gluten-free pita bread recipe (and *cough* correcting a bunch of typos in it), and realized that I very often pontificate on how easy it is to make good gluten-free food. But it really is! And I hope these recipes prove it to you.

  4. I made these for my daughter who needs gluten free and they were soft and delicious! I put in 1/2 cup of Chopped walnuts and 1 cup of smashed ripe banana. I only put in 1/2 cup sugar. The muffins were like the softest, moistest banana bread! Thank you!
