Hi this is KK, Sushi Artist / Healthy Muffin Maker / Mum 🙂
Thank you for visiting my blog.
It’s back to school time, and for our family, playgroup is back again.
Not that it makes our daily life so different, but I do use playgroup as an excuse to bake more often, and take what I have baked for other kids and mums to eat.
At the moment, I am experimenting on my gluten-free recipes, using rice flour. Here is a new recipe, that looks exactly like a normal chocolate muffin.
and Gluten Free. So, it is suitable for most kids and the best of all, it tastes good! Well, at least it must have been good for my daughter Yumi, because she ate the whole regular size muffin, as well as half of mine (^-^)/ Good to know that somebody enjoys it!
Ingredients (to make 6 regular muffin size)
-100g Rice flour
-50g Glutinous rice flour
-10g Cocoa powder
-2 teaspoon Aluminium free Baking Powder
-2 Tablespoon Maple syrup
-150cc Organic soy milk
-30g Organic sultanas
Step 1: Shift all the dry ingredients (rice flour, glutinous rice flour, cocoa, BP) into a large bowl; add wet ingredients(maple syrup and soy milk), and then the sultanas. Mix lightly until blended.
Step 2: Pour the batter into a silicon cup, put on a steamer and cook for about 12min. Check with a skewer (if it comes clean, its cooked)
Compared to my baked muffins, this is healthier becuase it contains no oil/butter. Good for your diet!
By adding glutinous rice flour, you get the interesting, soft-chewy texture, that my daughter seems to love. If you don’t have the glutinous rice flour, you can use 1 small mashed banana to substitute it. I will try 100% rice flour muffin next time, and tell you how that turns out. ENJOY!!!
