Orange poppyseed cranberry muffins.

I finally got a hold of the gluten free muffin recipe from Linux Caffe, the lovely place around the corner from my house. They make the most amazing vegan gf muffins, with new flavor combinations every day, and they have been very gracious to pass on the recipe. This is my tweaked version, with what is to me a very “American” flavor combination. The texture is perfect, and they rise properly despite not having any gluten or even xanthan gum. Not sure how, really, but it works!

Gluten-free vegan orange poppyseed cranberry muffins

  • 1/2 cup buckwheat flour
  • 1/2 cup brown rice flour
  • 1/3-1/2 cup sugar
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • a little bit of salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla sugar
  • 1/2 mashed banana
  • 150 ml orange juice
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 3-4 tbsp poppyseeds
  • handful dried cranberries.

Sift all the dry ingredients except the sugar. Mix in the sugar and blend well. If you have a blender, use it to blend all the wet ingredients well, sort of like an oily smoothie. If not, just do your best with a fork and a whisk. Fold in poppyseeds and cranberries.

Bake at 400F/200C for 25-30 minutes, knife should come out clean. Cool properly before attempting to eat them.

    • So glad you liked it! Reminds me I haven’t updated my blog since November… (work, painting kitchen etc…) I should bake some muffins!

      You are right that it’s a great basic gf/vegan recipe – you can vary it quite a bit by switching up the things you add to it (type of juice, berries/seeds/raisins/choc chips etc)
