Pumpkin Muffins (Gluten-Free)
In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease, and since then it has become an invaluable resource to people worldwide who seek information about celiac disease and the gluten-free diet.
In 1998 I created The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore! which was also another Internet firstâit was the first gluten-free food site to offer a shopping cart-style interface, and the ability for people to order gluten-free products manufactured by many different companies at a single Web site.
I am also co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.
Put about 3 eggs in a bowl, whip them with a whisk, add a 15 oz. can of pumpkin and ½ cup of sugar. Blend it in, then add a 1 ½ cups of milk, blend until smooth. Add enough gluten-free flour mix (below) to form a loose but not thin batter (about 3 ½ to 4 cups) . Either spoon into muffin tins or pour entire mixture into an oblong sheet cake pan. Bake at 350F for 45 min. to 1 hour. It should be done when it springs back and is a bit brown on top. The muffins are very moist.
Gluten-Free Flour Mix:
3 cups of rice flour (white or brown)
1 cup of sorghum,
½ cup tapioca,
½ cup potato flour,
5 teaspoons of baking soda,
3 teaspoons of xanthan gum,
3 teaspoons of soda,
5 teaspoons of salt,
5 tablespoons of sugar.
