Gluten Free Molasses Spice Muffins

These muffins are a wonderful guilt free snack for a fall afternoon. Blackstrap molasses is a nutrient dense sweetener that adds a distinct flavor to baked goods. It is one of those tastes you either love or hate. It contains calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, trace minerals and some B vitamins. It can also add flavor and nutrients to smoothies and shakes. Its strong taste makes it so a little goes a long way!


2 cups gluten free oat flour
1 tsp cream of tartar
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp allspice
2 eggs
1/2 cup applesauce
1/3 cup agave nectar
1/4 cup canola or other allowed oil
2 tbsp unsulphured blackstrap molasses
1 tsp vanilla


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare muffin pan by greasing or adding baking cup liners. Mix first four dry ingredients in a small bowl. Mix the rest of the ingredients in a large bowl. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix well. Fill muffin cups with batter, about 3/4 full. Bake for 16 to 18 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the middle of a muffin comes out clean. Yield: 12 muffins. Source: www.foodsensitivityjournal.com
