Nutritious GF quick bread/muffins
I have recently discovered a good mix of gluten free flours that are freshly ground and nutritious. My daughter likes to stay away from gluten so I've been developing the recipes for her but the whole family has been eating them. :)
I freshly grind all my whole grain and was disappointed in the lack of nutrients found in the gluten free recipes I was coming across, so I tried a combination of pseudograins, ground them myself and found I really liked it. So here it is...
1 1/2 c. brown rice
1/4 c. amaranth
1/4 c. millet
1/4 c. flaxseed
Freshly grind all these (makes about 3 1/2 c. flour) and mix with:
1 tsp. salt (I use sea salt)
4 tsp. baking powder
Lightly beat 4 eggs and add:
4 tbs. oil (safflower or mildly flavored)
6 tbs. honey (I use raw)
2 c. milk (I use almond milk to be dairy free)
For Quick Bread:
Mix all until fairly smooth and pour into 2 loaf pans.
Bake at 325 degrees for about 40 minutes or until done. (I use a glass pan)
You want to slightly under bake this rather than over bake because it gets too dry.
Wait about 10 minutes before getting out of pan.
Add raisins/currants and chopped walnuts for added flavor and crunch.
Mix all until fairly smooth and place heaping tbs. of batter in mini muffin tin.
Bake at 400 degrees for about 5 minutes. I let these rest about 5 minutes in the pan so they come out easier. These get a nice rise and are loved by the pickiest of children. :)
