Chai Tea Muffins (Gluten-Free)


This finished gluten-free chai muffins.

A delightful, healthy muffin that perfectly complements breakfast or tea time with just the right amount of spice.

Ingredients:

1/3 cup granulated cane sugar
4 Tbs. butter or non-dairy alternative (I used Earth Balance Buttery Sticks)
2 eggs
3 Tbs. agave nectar or 4 Tbs. honey
½ cup apple butter, pumpkin butter or “natural” applesauce (e.g. no sugar added)
1 cup Jules Gluten Free All Purpose Flour
½ cup almond meal or brown rice flour
2 Tbs. flax seed meal (optional)
2 Tbs. mesquite flour or unsweetened cocoa
½ cup certified gluten-free oats (I've used Lara's Cream Hill Estates or Gluten-Free Oats)
2 tsp. gluten-free baking powder
½ tsp. baking soda
½ cup chai tea latte concentrate (I use Oregon Chai) or steep 3 chai tea bags in ½ cup very warm milk (dairy or non-dairy) then set aside to cool
½ cup raisins or diced apples (optional)

Coat 15 muffin tins or 24 mini muffin tins with cooking oil or line with muffin papers.  Preheat oven to 325 F convection or 350 static.

Whip sugar and butter until light and fluffy.  Add eggs and stir.  Mix in agave nectar and apple butter until combined.  Stir the dry ingredients into the wet mix while slowly pouring in the chai tea.  Mix until smooth.

Fill the muffin tins 2/3 full and bake until they are light brown: approximately 11-12 minutes for mini muffins or 20 minutes for regular muffins.

Yield: Approximately 15 muffins or 24 mini-muffins.

I was excited when I read this recipe as it had so many of my favorite ingredients, and the end result did not disappoint. Delicious! A lot of ingredients, but worth the effort. I'll be making these again.

So as many of you might know at only 6 weeks Gluten Free we were shocked to see how many Neurological Issues were resolved for our daughter. It was shocking and amazing. We quickly began to realize that the difficulty swallowing, the Vertigo, the sensory issues were ALL Gluten related. Now in the last 2 weeks it all slipped away and she is almost entirely back to the way she was before we went Gluten Free. We have a pretty good idea why and are taking the steps to remedy it. BUT...it struck me that (for HER sake and the sake of her long term medical records) I need to get the Gluten Ataxia recognized. I realize now how fragile her health is and how hard she will have to fight to STAY healthy. And worse - potentially EVERY cross contamination will take her out for weeks and make her employment opportunities shaky and vulnerable. My Dr. agrees and is sending us to the McMaster Neurological Department (they are cutting edge, up on all that is new etc) to see if they are willing to work with us. She just put the referral in so I have no idea what will come from it. It my result in nothing? Or she may get a Gluten Ataxia diagnosis? I'm not sure but it is worth fighting for.

In my research, diabetes (type 2) is genetic. You either have the genes to develop diabetes or you do not. Additional weight is most likely due to insulin resistance. I happen to be a thin diabetic. I have never been heavy. I was brought up to consume the Standard American diet (SAD) full of process and sugary foods. The problem most celiacs have is that they just simply convert the SAD diet into a gluten free diet. I disagree. We need to consume foods that naturally contain nutrients that are good for us. Fortified foods were only developed during the last century. In the 20's they added iodine to salt to prevent thyroid disease (goiters). In the 30's they added Vitamin D to prevent rickets (fortified milk was better than that nasty cod liver oil). In the 40's they started fortifying flour. Why? They found that kids entering into the military during WWII were malnourished. Yes. They were malnourished. Remember, the Great Depression preceded the war. Read more: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK208880/ I consume very few grains because I do have diabetes. I eat fresh veggies (full of fiber), meats, fruit, eggs, and dairy along with plenty of fat (which does not raise blood sugar). I do occasionally fall of the wagon, but never the gluten-free wagon! Granted this diet is not for everyone. We must choose what works best for our individual health issues. But chances are we do not need to consume processed junk food in a daily basis. It is not healthy for a celiac. It is not healthy for anyone! So, everything in moderation and enjoy a varied diet.

I felt great a few weeks after going gluten-free. finally started loosing weight as well. the last few weeks I have not felt good. ok in the morning, then slowly start getting brain fog. shakes. pains. is low blood sugar a side affect of going gluten free????

I had a bone scan it didn't show any fractures, basically I left physical therapy in pain, it then went away. But my knee pain and tingling didn't go away so I tried PT again and I left it pain. Then I realized I had celiac and now all my pain is gone other then the back pain.. I'm basically worried I healed from the celiac and PT caused a whole new problem that never had to happen.

I am trying to find out if going gluten-free can cause low blood sugar. I felt so much better when going gluten-free, but now I feel weak, shaky, tired
