Strawberry Shortcake Muffins

Strawberry Shortcake Muffins

Moist, wheat-free strawberry muffins with a hint of coconut.

Ingredients:

  • 4½ cups oat flour (see notes below)
  • 2 Tbs baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ cup coconut oil
  • ¼ cup sucanat (or brown sugar)
  • ⅔ cup honey
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • ½ tsp coconut extract
  • ⅓ cup flaked coconut
  • 2 cups chopped frozen strawberries.
Instructions
  1. Whisk together the oat flour, baking powder, and salt.
  2. In a saucepan over medium-low heat, warm the coconut oil, sucanat, honey, and buttermilk. (It should be warm to the touch. This will keep the coconut oil from hardening when you mix it.)
  3. In a large bowl, mix the warmed coconut oil mixture with the eggs, vanilla, coconut extract, and flaked coconut.
  4. Blend in the dry ingredients. Stir in the chopped strawberries.
  5. Line 18 muffin cups with muffin liners (or grease each cup with coconut oil). Spoon the batter into the muffin cups.
  6. Bake at 375 degrees for 20-23 minutes, or until golden and cracked.
  7. These are delicious warm or cooled, but are better set after cooling.
Notes:
Oat flour can be made by milling oats with a kitchen mill or by processing them in a food processor (or high-powered blender) until fine. I prefer to mill the oats with my kitchen mill, since that produces a finer flour, but either way will work.

Instructions:

  1. Chop the sweet potato into small pieces.

  4. Cook, stirring constantly for 2-3 minutes at medium heat.
  5. Add in the diced tomatoes, black beans, corn, minced garlic, cumin, chili powder, and vegetable or chicken broth (add peppers if not been added already). Give everything a really good stir, bring to a boil, and then reduce the heat.
  6. Cover the skillet with a lid and allow to simmer for 10-15 minutes or until the rice is cooked through.
  7. Remove the lid and stir in the lime juice. Serve with optional toppings & enjoy!

Teriyaki Sauce (recipe makes about 2 cups)

  • 1/4 c + 2 Tbs soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • heaping 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup sucanat (or brown sugar)
  • 3 Tbs honey
  • 3 Tbs corn starch or arrowroot flour
  • 1/4 c + 2 Tbs cold water

Mix all but the cornstarch and cold water in a sauce pan and begin heating over medium-high heat. In a separate bowl, mix the cornstarch and cold water until dissolved. (The mixture in the sauce pan should be warm by now, but not bubbling yet.) Stir the cornstarch mixture to the heated sauce. Continue cooking, stirring frequently, until the sauce thickens to desired thickness (this will take several minutes).
