Mornings might be fairly hectic at GFHQ and there’s little time to spend slaving over a frying pan or making waffle batter, so if we’re to be tempted to eat, we actually do want one thing that we are able to eat on the run. Even a bowl of cereal takes an excessive amount of time. These breakfast muffins are an ideal begin to the day.

What’s in my gluten free Spiced Candy Potato Muffins?
Made with Fullgreen Candy Potato Vegi Rice, in addition they comprise hidden wholesome veggie stuff (though you’d by no means know). Candy potato is filled with goodness… an awesome supply of fibre and of nutritional vitamins and minerals (significantly nutritional vitamins B and C and the anti-oxidant beta carotene). However these breakfast muffins are nutritious too for the bottom almonds (stuffed with protein, mono-unsaturated fats and vitamin E), protein and fibre-rich flours (the mix contains sorghum, teff and buckwheat) and likewise eggs (a improbable supply of protein and all essential Vitamin D) they comprise. The truth is, the elements checklist is ideal for that all-important slow-release power burn wanted to maintain you till lunch.

You possibly can most likely make my candy potato muffins with a bog-standard grocery store bag of gluten free flour (though you might want so as to add just a little extra liquid), however I’m of the view that when baking gluten free, getting the flour mix proper is essential to the top end result. I’m not a fan of ordinary rice-filled blends, not solely as a result of they’re nutritionally devoid (and have a possible danger from arsenic ranges), however as a result of they depart baked items with a gritty, dry texture that may be fairly disagreeable to eat. Consuming (even the wholesome selection) needs to be pleasurable from each angle and so I’ve developed my very own straightforward to mix-at-home flour blends which offer a greater steadiness. These muffins are made with my Gluten Free Alchemist rice-free flour mix which you will discover on the finish of my flours web page. Do not ever be delay by the ‘trouble’ of blending your personal flour blends. It actually is easy and it additionally means you’ve got the flexibleness to range or add options into the combination, both if there are specific flours you can’t tolerate (akin to corn or buckwheat) or to attain a special desired finish end result. And guess what? I did a load of analysis for you and have offered an awesome checklist of flours and fundamental information to flour mixing to offer you a head begin…

In case you nonetheless cannot be tempted to combine your personal, the Free From Fairy makes an awesome various rice free mix.

What sparked my creativity to make these Spiced Candy Potato Muffins?
In case you learn my final submit, you’ll know that I additionally made more healthy Spiced Candy Potato Baked Doughnuts, after being challenged on the Free From Present in London by the Fullgreen group (who’ve joined with Hip & Wholesome) to make one thing utilizing their Candy Potato Vegi Rice. The issue was, I solely have one doughnut tin and there was twice as a lot batter as I wanted for six doughnuts.

Now I might have waited the very quick time it took to bake the primary batch earlier than refilling the tin with the remainder of the batter, however frankly, I could not be bothered to attend… so I grabbed a muffin tin and a few circumstances and acquired spooning.

It might have been an entire catastrophe. Not all bake mixes are versatile sufficient to alter form and nonetheless have the specified texture… however this one labored completely. My candy potato muffins are simply candy sufficient with out the maple glaze that was added to the doughnuts to make an ideal more healthy bake!
