Gluten-free, dairy-free Apple, Maca & Raisin Rice Flour Muffins


Hi everyone!

Today was a particularly overcast and rainy day for me, instead of letting the weather get me down, I took to the kitchen and baked these super delicious gluten free muffins!

They only use rice flour as the flour, so they are perfect if you’re beginning to be gluten-free and don’t have a cupboard full of flours! Or perhaps if you need a gluten-free recipe for a friend, or if you just want a delicious muffin 😉


I also used rice milk to make it dairy-free but you could use any milk of choice! The apple and raisin/cranberry mix add a natural sweetness to the muffins and the maca a lovely malty taste (which I love complimented with cinnamon)!

Hope you enjoy this one!
