Gluten Free Apricot Muffins

Gluten Free baking can be a challenge — that is why I love it when I find some great sounding Gluten Free Muffins (or other baked goodies) like this Gluten Free and Vegan Apricot Muffins!

If you have never baked Gluten Free, you need to know that non-gluten flours do not react the same as traditional gluten flours.  Gluten is very forgiving in recipes … you can substitute, change and even make mistakes with gluten flour and you baked goods may still turn out delicious.  Not so with Gluten Free flours!!  Care must be taken to make sure your measurements are accurate, your ingredients are all at room temperatures, your oven temperature is set correctly …. and you follow the recipe instructions carefully.

Don’t let the precision of Gluten Free baking scare you away.  Baking your own Gluten Free goodies can still be fun and rewarding.

So on to our featured recipe …
