Gluten-Free Lingonberry Muffins
A while back - in my pre-gluten-free days - I went one a big muffin making kick. I'd make all kinds of muffins, a different flavour each week - lingonberry, raspberry-nectarine, cardamom-pear, apple struesel... and they'd serve as breakfasts for the week. Once going gluten-free, I know I'd need to come up with a great fruit-based muffin recipe - I'd never had a great gluten-free muffin!
Fruit is an excellent way to add some more flavour AND nutrition in any muffin - gluten or not - but when it comes to gluten-free muffins, the moisture that fruit adds is key to a great texture!
This recipe is an adaptation of one of the recipes in my latest cookbook, "Beyond Flour: A Fresh Approach to Gluten-Free Cooking & Baking". It's pretty much the perfect muffin: Soft and tender, kind of cakey, but actually containing some decent nutrition, via sorghum, oat, and buckwheat grains... but, in this case, it has the added bonus of Lingonberries - my absolute favourite. I love them with a hint of orange, so I included juice and zest in this recipe. It's fabulous 🙂
Don't have access to lingonberries? Feel free to swap in blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, or cranberries. (strawberries and cranberries should be sliced or chopped before adding). Enjoy!
Also, if you're interested in gluten-free cooking and baking, you should definitely check out my gluten-free cookbooks: Beyond Flour: A Fresh Approach to Gluten Free Cooking & Baking, and the sequel... Beyond Flour 2. You can order them right here on my website, through Amazon, or through any major bookseller.
