Confession:  I love buying fun, random, new-to-me ingredients and I often end up hoarding them in my cupboards.

As you can see below, I have quite the collection of gluten-free flours that I still need to use.

Fall Medley Muffins flours

This weekend, I decided to make a dent in my flour collection and cook up some tasty gluten-free muffins that Brian and I could have on hand for a healthy snack option or to go with breakfast.

Pumpkin muffins sounded tasty, but I wanted something with more “stuff” in it so I decided to kick just a plain pumpkin muffin up a notch with tons of mix-ins like apples, shredded carrot, pepitas, and almonds. The end result of the experimental gluten-free muffin was a soft, dense (but not TOO dense), slightly sweet muffin with lots of different textures thanks to all the fun mix-ins.

  1. These muffins really do scream “fall”. I’ve always loved adding carrots to the batter. I don’t have any brown rice flour, you know what I can sub for it? Whole wheat maybe?
