Healthy & VERY Tasty – NO- WHITE FLOUR Carrot Craisin Muffin Bread

Hey KS Fans,

So if you have not joined our Healthy Exchange Group on Facebook yet – well you are MISSING OUT!

Great recipes like this one courtesy of  David Gursky- are being traded fast and often by our really creative KS foodie members.

When David posted this recipe I was a little skeptical – not only have I not baked with any of these interesting “flour” substitutes ( I had to make a trip to my local health food store) – but I was kinda scared on how these muffins were going to taste. Healthy and nutritious baking,  in my experience -sometimes can mean bland, dry and chalky tasting muffins. But David, who I have never met personally had been posting some really quality recipes in our facebook group, that I decided I was going to put his recipe to the test!

So I did and chose to make them in a square muffin pan – because for some reason after reading the recipe I thought the texture would come out more bread like than muffin like.

And it seems I was right. So now with very little effort, these bread muffins came out very tasty and are the perfect breakfast with a little shmear of cream cheese or jelly! I am slowly (very very slowly – and probably will never be a total convert) starting to get on the band wagon of baking with less white flour – with a recipe like this it is definitely easier!

Yum Yum! Thanks, David!! :) Sarah

    This recipe sounds so yummy. Unfortunately, flax and I don’t get along. I’ve recently been put on a gluten-free diet by my doctor, so most flour-free recipes are life-savers to me. It is difficult eating gluten-free. Lots of good G-free food out there, but I also have to eat large amounts of fiber, which is a missing (or low in content) ingredient in most G-free foods. Hope your recipes and food suggestions will bring me much-needed help.
