#GlutenFree muffins or squares with carrots, almonds, and coconut. - WholeIntentions.comIt’s the perfect morning picture isn’t it? The sunshine pouring across the kitchen table, birds singing outside the window, and the sound of a busy day not yet underway.

A morning started this way would do us all a world of good for the hours that follow.

Betty Crocker must have agreed with me, because she came up with this wonderful muffin recipe. I adapted it to become gluten-free along with the option of making it egg-free as well. You can make these into muffins or cut into squares.

Go ahead, make a batch and we can nibble them together. 🙂

Morning Glory Muffins (gluten-free)
Streusel:
1/2 c. Master Mix
1/3 c. cane sugar
2 T. unsalted butter, softened

Batter:
2 c. Master Mix
1 t. cinnamon
1/4 t. allspice
1/4 t. nutmeg
3/4 c. carrots, shredded
1/4 c. almonds, chopped
1/4 c. raisins
1/4 c. shredded coconut
2 T. cane sugar
2/3 c. milk (or milk substitute)
2 T. coconut oil
1 egg (I’ve substituted this with 1/4 c. pumpkin puree with great results.)

Directions:
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a muffin tin or 8″x8″ square pan.

2. Combine streusel ingredients, cutting in butter until fully incorporated. Set aside.

3. For the batter: combine all the dry ingredients in a medium-sized mixing bowl and blend until evenly blended. Set aside.

4. Combine wet ingredients in small bowl and then add to the dry batter ingredients. Stir until just moistened.

5. Pour batter into prepared muffin tin or baking pan. Sprinkle streusel evenly overtop.

6. Bake for 20 minutes if you are making muffins and for 30-35 minutes if you are making squares.

    • Love these healthy muffins! Would love you to share this at Breakfast Ideas Mondays – http://www.yummyinspirations.net/2012/06/coconut-pancakes-and-breakfast-ideas.html 🙂

      I have a similar recipe I adapted from one of my moms. They are really good.

    • Thank you for your submission on Nourishing Treasures’ Make Your Own! Monday link-up.

      Check back later tonight when the new link-up is running to see if you were one of the top 3 featured posts! 🙂

      Instead of the master mix can you use just almond flour??

      • Paula Miller

        The Master Mix is a combo of starchy flours and other GF flours. I’ve never tried the recipe with just almond flour – but it would be worth a try! 🙂

    • Rhonda

      I tried these but they came out crumbling, any suggestions?

      • Paula

        Gluten-Free baked goods tend to be a bit more crumbly than their wheat counterparts. I’d suggest maybe adding a touch more milk to make the dough wetter. . .
