Recipe: Gluten-Free Goji Muffins
1½c unsweetened applesauce
1T agave nectar
1T chia seeds mixed with 3T water
1/3c olive oil
3T dried currants
1/4c dried goji berries
Preheat oven to 350° and lightly grease 12-muffin tin.
Stir together chia seeds and water in a small bowl. Allow to sit for 10-15 minutes, stirring after 5 minutes. The seeds and water will form a thick gel.
Mix together dry ingredients in a large bowl. Stir in goji berries and currants.
Combine wet ingredients in a medium bowl; add chia mixture when thick.
Add wet ingredients to dry.
Spoon batter into oiled muffin tins.
Bake at 350° for 30 to 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Cool muffins in tin for about 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack. Cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
Makes 12 regular-sized muffins
