Gluten Free Peanut Butter Muffins
Since I posted on the illustrator's favorite food yesterday, I thought I would post one of my new favorites today.  I mentioned the peanut butter muffins two weeks ago and never posted the recipe.

When you add makes smooth and creamy peanut butter!

People always ask me if gluten free baked goods are dry and honestly, you couldn't tell this is gluten free. The texture is really soft and chewy.

I put a little brown sugar on top, but it sank to the bottom. No worries, it was a nice little surprise in the middle of the muffin.

Gluten Free Peanut Butter Muffins
(makes 6 regular muffins)

1/2 cup almond milk
1 1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar
1/2 gluten free flour blend (I used Bob's Red Mill)
1/4 cup peanut flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp salt
1/3 cup brown sugar
5 drops vanilla stevia (or another 2 TBSP brown sugar)
1/4 cup peanut flour
3 TBSP water
1/4 tsp brown sugar for each muffin

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray muffin pan with cooking spray.

First, stir the almond milk with the vinegar together and allow this to sit while you get everything else ready.  Combine the flour, 1/4 cup peanut flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and brown sugar in a mixer. Next stir together the stevia, 1/4 cup peanut flour and water to form peanut butter. Then add the soured milk and peanut butter mixture to the rest of the ingredients and mix until well blended. Pour evenly into muffin cups. Sprinkle 1/4 tsp brown sugar on top of muffins. Bake for 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow to cool for 5 minutes in the pan. Then remove muffins and place on a cooling rack.

    That looks delicious and what an ingenious way to make peanut butter - love it!

    These sound delicious and easy. In the 3 weeks I've been gluten free, I've found that most homemade gluten free foods taste wonderful. It's the brandname store bought foods that are dry and tasteless. I bet these muffins would blow any store brand out of the water!

    Sometimes I actually prefer eating GF than regular. Honestly, Andrew's pizza crust is waaaaaay better to me than normal crust. These muffins look fabulous! I've made GF muffins for Andrew before, but I cheat and get Pamela's mix. It is really good!!

    Oh wow, those look fantastic. I seriously need to find peanut flour and try these out. I've not really done any gluten free baking or eaten many gluten free baked goods to be honest. I hear people suggest dry, but never tried them to know I guess. So, not biased at all which is probably a good thing right. Plus, there are good recipes and there are bad recipes!

    Why is it that when I decide to abstain from sweets for a bit that all these wonderful recipes pop up? Hm?? Oh well, perhaps I will break my new rule for thsi recipe. I am intrigued by the peanut flour..

    Great recipe!! Even if it is ruining my diet, haha.

    fabulous! I do have to say- I'm sort of ignorant to the gluten-free diet, so I was also wondering if some things would turn out more dry than the original way of making them... good to know it's not!

    So the peanut flour is much like PB2?

    i was wondering if i had missed this recipe - glad I didn't! These look amazing...and I'm going to say it again - I can't wait to play with peanut flour! :P
    Also - 'grats on making the illustrator that awesome fried chicken last night! looked like it turned out perfectly - and he definitely deserved it after busting his butt on that novel ;)

    Thank you SO much for posting this recipe! I am vegan and just found out I have to go gluten free.

    Wow, that actually looks like REALLY good peanut butter too. Okay, when we move, I'm buying that stuff ... and making these muffins.

    I also put nut butter in ALL of my baked goods! It helps bind everything together. And it totally adds to the texture and chewiness. No dense hard bready happening here. Lovely muffins!!!

    All your peanutty posts have been making me drool, but this one takes the cake (err the muffin? :P) I wish like nothing else we could get peanut flour here. Alas it's another one of those elusive American products that will likely never make it to our shores :(

    I have a bag of that flour and unsuccessfully tried to make grain free pancakes with it last night. Muffins was on my list of things to try. Thanks for giving me a jumping off point! These look great.

    I think I need to invest in some peanut flour. Everything you have made with it looks really good. It is a how wonder a peanut butter lover like me does not have peanut flour. :)

    I think prepackaged GF treats are awful, but homemade ones are always good :)

    These look so good, and I love the idea of a brown sugar surprise at the bottom!

    Thank you for this! I'm always on the hunt for good gluten free baked goods and these sound divine. Plus, I kind of have a slight obsession with PB. Hm.. maybe it's more than slight..

  • At September 17, 2010 at 6:24 PM, Blogger Nicole said…

    I am so making these. I forgot to get pb flour at Trader Joe's when I went today. How do you like the Bobs gluten free flour blend? What types are in it?

    Thanks everyone! You can't tell these are gluten free at all!

    Nicole, it has potato, tapioca and some other flours and I love it! It works really well as a flour sub and it is lower in calories. I am a huge fan of Bob's stuff!
