Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 9 muffin cups or line with paper liners.

  • Stir water and flax seed meal together in a bowl; set aside until "flax egg" is thickened, about 10 minutes.

  • Whisk gluten-free all-purpose flour, pecans, coconut flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt together in a large bowl. Add flax egg, maple syrup, coconut oil, and vanilla extract to flour mixture and mix well until batter is smooth. Scoop batter into the prepared muffin cups.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until muffin tops are starting to brown, about 17 minutes. Cool muffins in the tin for a few minutes before removing.

Cook's Notes:

Gluten-free all-purpose mix can be from a packaged mix, or you can use my suggestion of 1 1/2 cup oat flour from milled oats, 1/2 cup white rice flour, 1/2 cup brown rice flour, 1/2 cup tapioca starch, and 2 teaspoons xanthan gum (or omit if you have none on hand). Mix well and scoop out amount needed for recipe.

Almond flour can be used in place of the gluten-free all-purpose flour, if desired.

Partner Tip

Reynolds® Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.
