Gluten Free / Casein Free Rice Bran & Raisin Muffins
I got this recipe from a fellow gluten free blogger. I haven't had a bran muffin since going gluten free. These tasted so good! I used NOW brand rice bran. It is in the refrigerated section of your store. I forgot to mention (and have added it) that I added 1 tsp cinnamon to my batch. I love cinnamon and it is anti-inflammatory.
GF/CF Raisin-Rice Bran Muffins
Recipe makes 6 regular-size muffins
1/2 cup rice bran
1/4 cup sorghum flour (or rice flour or millet flour)
1/4 cup tapioca starch flour
1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 pinch salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/3 cup + 2 Tablespoons unsweetened, natural apple sauce
3 Tablespoons brown sugar

To your health! Gluten free......
