Applesauce Spice Muffins (GF)

These came out good, but I personally like the applesauce chocolate chip muffins  better !!!  These muffins are more crumbly, and in my opinion, do not have as much flavor as the applesauce chocolate chip muffins .

This recipe was adapted from a recipe in The Joy of Muffins Cookbook  .  I REALLY like this cookbook - there are a lot of GREAT muffin recipes in it.  But the recipes are not vegan, low fat, or gluten-free, so I am trying to go through the cookbook and convert the recipes to vegan, low fat, and gluten-free versions of the muffins.  Of course I need to also add things like cocoa powder and/or vegan chocolate chips !!!!  I LOVE chocolate  !!!!!

3/4 cup Brown Rice Flour
1/2 cup Millet Flour
3/4 cup Tapioca Starch
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 heaping tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ginger
3/4 tsp allspice
1/2 cup Sucanat   (or brown sugar)
1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
1 cup applesauce
2 Tbsp almond milk
2 medium to large very ripe bananas, mashed

Mix applesauce, almond milk and mashed bananas in one bowl. 

Mix the dry ingredients in another bowl.    

Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir just until the dry ingredients are moistened.  

Pour into muffin pan and bake at 375 degrees for about 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.  

I like using the silicone bakeware for my muffins.  The muffins  come out so easily and I don't need to grease the pan.  My favorites are:   Casabella Silicone Standard Muffin PanCasabella Silicone Large Muffin Pan, Casabella Jumbo Muffin Cups.

The OXO Large Scoop is GREAT for scooping out batter into the muffin pan.  It is MUCH neater than when I used a spoon to scoop the batter into the pan - I no longer get batter all over the muffin pan !!!
