1 dozen muffins


  • ¾ cup raisins

  • ¼ cup orange juice

  • 1 ½ cups rice flour

  • ¾ cup white sugar

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground allspice

  • ¼ teaspoon xanthan gum

  • 1 cup finely shredded carrots

  • ¼ cup vegetable oil

  • 2 tablespoons water

  • 1 ½ teaspoons dry egg replacer (such as Ener-G®)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a muffin tin with paper liners.

  2. Mix raisins and orange juice together in a small bowl.

  3. Combine rice flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, allspice, and xanthan gum in a large bowl.

  4. Mix carrots, oil, water, and dry egg replacer together in a separate bowl. Fold in raisin mixture.

  5. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture; pour in carrot mixture. Mix until batter is moistened. Spoon batter into the prepared tin, filling each cup 3/4 full.

  6. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

Substitute gluten-free baking mix for the rice flour if desired.

You may use 1 egg instead of the egg replacer if not trying to avoid eggs.
