Recommended Posts

These are extra nice - savory & sweet. My friend said that they taste like pastries he gets in Chinatown. Must be because of the rice flour. They're nice for sharing with non-celiac pals. A light, crisp taste.

Cinnamon Basil Muffins

1/4 cup cinnamon basil leaves

OR

1/4 cup basil leaves AND 1/4 tsp cinnamon

1/3 cup canola oil

1/2 cup sugar

1 egg, lightly beaten

1/2 cup white rice flour

1/2 cup cornstarch

1/2 tsp. xanthan gum

1 tsp baking powder

1/4 cup sour cream

1/4 cup milk

1/2 cup walnuts, finely chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Puree cinnamon basil leaves in a blender with the oil until it is a fine puree. Add sugar and egg and mix well.

Sift together dry ingredients. Add to basil-oil mixture and combine. Add in sour cream, milk and walnuts and mix well.

Bake at 350 degrees F for 15-20 minutes, or until muffins feel springy.

This looks delicious. Have to admit, I have never heard of cinnamon basil leaves. Where do you get those?

I think you grow them?!? I don't know. That's why I just substituted regular old basil and dried cinnamon. The flavor is delicious, so I'm not holding out for the real thing. : )
