I’ve had several requests for gluten-free recipes.

I’ve read a lot of good reviews about

which makes it easy to convert your favorite recipes to gluten-free versions

without modifications or special ingredients.

of KA Measure for Measure GF Flour to make delicious muffins, cookies,

cakes, brownies, pancakes, and other non-yeasted treats.

  You can enjoy your favorite recipe with this easy substitution if you’re trying to

reduce your gluten intake or eating gluten-free for health reasons.

Gluten is found in certain grains. . .  mainly wheat, barley, and rye.

If you’re on a strict gluten-free diet, you’ll need to consider your other ingredients beyond your flour.

Ingredients that are naturally gluten-free, may come in contact with gluten during processing

or packaging. If you’re just reducing the amount of gluten in your diet,

you can most likely use these products in your baking without worrying

about trace amounts of gluten.

A hidden source of gluten made be in your vanilla extract or flavoring.

Make your own vanilla, HERE, with Smirnoff 90 Proof Vodka, certified gluten-free.

Oats, which are often grown, harvested, and/or processed alongside wheat may be a

 potential sources of gluten, along with baking chips, baking powder

or even confectioners’ sugar if they’re processed on shared equipment.

For those managing signs and symptoms of celiac disease and other medical conditions

associated with gluten, it’s important to use only ingredients that

are certified gluten-free, verified by the manufacturer.

There are four parts to this recipe:

Streusel topping

Cinnamon filling

Batter and

Glaze

or enjoy the streusel topping without a glaze.

Start by mixing your cinnamon filling, allowing it to stand and thicken for 5 – 10 minutes

then assemble your streusel topping and set aside.

Scoop your batter into a cupcake liner in a standard muffin tin.

For easier filling, use a 1 tablespoon cookie scoop (#60) for your batter.

Top with a couple of teaspoons of cinnamon filling,

consisting of melted butter, brown sugar and cinnamon,

then add another scoop of batter on top of the filling.

The streusel topping is a irresistible mixture of chopped pecans, oats, flour, cinnamon,

softened butter and brown sugar.

Place a heaping scoop of streusel on top of your batter and lightly press down to adhere.

Allow muffins to cool 5 minutes in the pan before transferring them to a wire rack to finish cooling.

When cool, drizzle with a confectioners’ sugar glaze if desired.

Notes

  • You can you use unbleached all-purpose flour if you're not concerned about gluten.
  • King Arthur Gluten-Free Measure for Measure Flour is certified gluten-free allowing you to convert your favorite recipes to gluten-free versions without any modifications or additional specialty ingredients. It allows you to directly swap the amount of all-purpose flour with the same amount 1:1 to make delicious muffins, cookies, cakes, brownies, pancakes, and other non-yeasted treats.
  • If you're baking on a strict gluten-free diet, you'll need to consider ingredients beyond just the flour. Gluten is found in certain grains, mainly wheat, barley, and rye. Ingredients that are naturally gluten-free, may come in contact with gluten due to processing, packaging or transportation. This exposure to gluten is known as "cross-contact.” If you’re only reducing the amount of gluten in your diet, you can most likely use these products in your baking without worrying if they might have trace amounts of gluten. Some brands of vanilla extract may contain gluten as well as oats which are often grown, harvested, and/or processed alongside wheat. Other potential sources of gluten from cross contact could be baking chips, baking powder or confectioners’ sugar if processed on shared equipment. For those managing signs and symptoms of celiac disease and other medical conditions associated with gluten, it’s important to use only ingredients that are certified gluten-free, verified by the manufacturer.
  • You can potentially get 14 muffins instead of 12 with careful scooping. A  tablespoon cookie scoop (#60) makes for quick filling of batter.
