This gluten-free muffin recipe was created by Yasmine at the Wedge Natural Foods Co-op in Minneapolis. You can find more from The Wedge at www.wedge.coop/food/.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup hot water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 14 cup Organic Valley Butter
  • 12 cup powdered sugar (or substitute maple syrup or agave nectar)
  • 16 ounces Organic Valley Cream Cheese
 (or Neufchatel)
  • toasted walnuts (optional)
  • Muffins

  • 1 teaspoon cloves
  • 1 Organic Valley egg
  • 34 cup molasses

Directions

1. Combine the oil, sugar, molasses and hot water.

2. Combine dry ingredients and mix with wet.

3. If you are using a gf flour that already has xanthan gum, baking soda and baking powder in it you dont need to use those ingredients but if you are not, add about 1 tsp of each.

4. Bake at 375 for about 25-30 minutes. Finish with cream cheese frosting and top with chopped toasted walnuts if desired.

To make frosting:

Cream together cream cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla extract and butter. Spread and enjoy.

This sounds like just the recipe I have been looking for. I am trying to find my husbands favorites converted to Gluten Free.

THANKS! Will post again after I bake.
