I am absolutely in love with this transition to Fall. I am “that person” that is baking, lighting pumpkin candles, going to every local fair, shopping for fall clothes too early and hanging out cafes every crisp night drinking pumpkin spice, cinnamon spice latte’s (or ANYTHING spice) and soaking up everything that is Fall! Anyone with me?

And so what brought me to these muffins is I’m big on baking a ton at this time of the year (aren’t we all?) so I reallllllyyy wanted to just try and see if it was possible to make the recipes I love at Fall time into gluten free ones. And to my surprise: IT WORKED! Please do yourself a favor and make these and get yo-self into the spirit! I promise there will be more Fall baking recipes to come! I can’t stop. 🙂

Use Bob's Red Mill 1-to-1 Gluten Free Flour. You need Xanthan Gum for a successful GF recipe to work. This flour includes Xanthan Gum so you will not have to spend a very hefty price for it seperately!

    Hello! I am trying to make these for a brunch and am wondering how much maple syrup should be in the recipe. The instructions say “Using a large bowl, beat together the oil, applesauce, eggs, almond milk, brown sugar, vanilla and maple syrup;” however, I don’t see the amount of maple syrup in the ingredient list. Please help! Thx!

    These are delish! I did not have applesauce, so I instead cut up three apples into small cubes and incorporated them into the mix. Since I did not have the liquid which would come from using applesauce, I had to add a little more milk. The cubes of apple added a very nice element to the muffins. I love these! I am about to make another batch! 5 stars! 🙂
