A.J.'s Pumpkin-Raisin Spice 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. In 1998 I foundedÂ The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore!, and I am the co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.View all articles by Scott Adams
This recipe comes to us from A.J. McEvoy
¼ Cups A.J.s Special Gluten-Free Baking mix (or your own
½ Cup Canned Pumpkin Puree
1 Large Egg
¼ Cup milk
2 teaspoon Pumpkin Pie Spice, more if you prefer (BE CAREFUL that it is made only of spices, as some
anti-caking agents might contain grain products)
2 teaspoon Blackstrap or other dark molasses (be sure ingredients do not list caramel color, a possible danger)
2 teaspoon Honey
1 small handful of your favorite raisins
Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees. Mix baking mix and spice together in a medium-size bowl; set aside. In another medium-size bowl, beat the egg; then add the milk; then add the sugar, molasses, and honey; then blend in the pumpkin. Slowly add in the baking mix/spice blend. This mix WILL be very stiff. It takes a strong hand to stir it. When evenly-blended, add raisins. Spoon into muffin pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes, depending on your oven. Makes 6 muffins.
