These are wheat free, dairy free, low sugar, low fat muffins and you'd never know it. Sucant is dried can juice. It can be found in health food stores. If you don't eat them in the first two days, freeze them. Thaw in microwave for 30 seconds apiece and they will taste freshly baked.

I really liked this recipe but I don't eat a lot of sugar so it tasted sweet to me. I thought the cherries made them super yummy. I changed it a bit to make it more whole grain. Instead of adding two cups of white rice flour I added one cup of rice flour 3/4 cup of brown rice flour and 1/4 cup of milled flax seed. I put a tablespoon of sugar instead of sucanat. I put foil over the muffins after 15 minutes so the top of the muffins wouldn't brown too much. The muffins stuck to the paper muffin cups so next time I'll just grease the muffin pan well and skip the paper muffin cups. Read More

I was really excited to try this recipe but it didn't perform well. It was dense and bland. Maybe it needs more sweetener? It definiely tasted low fat low sugar. Read More

When I read the reviews I did some modifications and they turned out fairly well. First I changed the flours to 1 cup white rice flour and 1 cup brown. Second I increased the sugar to 3 tbsp. Finally I added 1/4 cup flax meal to add some additional texture. They were baked after 23 minutes. Read More

I really liked these muffins. I didn't have cherries or vanilla chips so used Chocolate chips instead. Also I didn't have sucanat so used one packet of Stevia instead. They turned out moist and fairly dense and satisfied my craving for muffins without having any gluten! I will be making these again! Especially after I get some dried cherries! Read More
