Apple Cinnamon Bran Muffins!

~Simple, Wholesome Food!~

I wanted bran muffins....Badly. I needed them. The comforting taste and feel, high fiber, slightly nutty-sweet and delicious. I didn't have raisins though, but apples. Why not? It's fall, time to get out the apple recipes, so let's try it! I tried it. It's delicious! These are free from gluten, dairy, eggs, corn, soy, and animal products. They are easy to make, quick to bake, and oh so tasty. They only make 6-8 muffins, which in a way is good, because you'll want to devour them all after one taste. I really changed this recipe from an old one from Bette Hagman. I like mine better ;-)

Apple Cinnamon Bran Muffins

1/4 cup Packed Golden Sugar
2 Scant Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 tbsp Ground Flax Seed whisked with 6 tbsp Hot Water and left to thicken, about 3 minutes
2/3 Garfava Flour
1 tbsp Tapioca Flour
2 tbsp Arrowroot Flour
2 tsp Baking Powder
1/2-1 tsp Cinnamon (depending on your tastes)
1/8-1/4 tsp Nutmeg (depending on your tastes)
1/2 tsp (rounded) xanthan gum
dash Salt
1/2 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
3/4 cup Rice drink
1/2 cup (rounded) Rice Bran
1 Medium Apple, chopped (I love Gala apples)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease your muffin cups if they aren't non-stick.
Whisk the sugar, oil and flax seed/water mixture, adding the vanilla towards the end. Evenly sprinkle the dry ingredients (not the bran) over the top, and slowly combine, adding the rice drink as you stir. Mix in the rice bran until just combined, then add the apple pieces and mix.
Bake for 25 minutes and allow to cool slightly in the muffin pan before removing to a plate.
