The more appropriate name for these muffins is “Use up the produce on the kitchen counter before it goes bad” Muffins, but that just doesn’t have a very good ring to it.  So I’m just calling them Everything Muffins instead.  This is what I whipped up for afterschool snacks today in a fit of ambition.

GFDF Everything Muffins

Wet ingredients:
2/3 cup organic sucanat
½ cup organic palm shortening
2 organic eggs
3 teaspoons organic vanilla extract
3/4 cup organic rice milk

Dry Ingredients:
1/2 cup organic brown rice flour
1/2 cup organic tapioca starch
1/2 cup organic millet flour
1/2 cup sorghum flour
1 teaspoons xanthan gum
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons organic ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon sea salt

2 medium organic bananas, ripe to overripe, mashed (about ¾ cup)
2 small organic pears, diced into small pieces (about 1 cup)
1 cup finely diced organic fresh pineapple (canned would work, too)
3/4 cup unsweetened shredded organic coconut
¾ cup gluten free oats
¾ cup finely chopped organic walnuts or pecans (optional, not in this batch)

Preheat the oven to 350F.  Oil the bottom of 24 muffin tins.  (I used organic canola oil.)

In a large bowl, mix together the wet ingredients using a whisk.  In a medium bowl, mix together the dry ingredients.  Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix thoroughly with a spoon.  Stir in all the remaining stir-in ingredients.  Divide the batter between the 24 muffin tins, filling each about half full.

Bake at 350F for about 15-17 minutes.
