Featured in: Gluten Free: Flavor Free No More.
Butter to grease the pan
350 grams gluten-free flour mix a little over 3 cups, purchased or homemade see recipe
½ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon baking powder
180 grams dark brown sugar (about 1 cup)
1 teaspoon kosher salt
2 large eggs, at room temperature
1 ¼ cups buttermilk, at room temperature
½ cup grapeseed or coconut oil
40 grams chopped dried apricots (about 1/3 cup)
40 grams toasted chopped walnuts (about 1/3 cup)
1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees, with a rack in the middle. Grease a muffin tin.
2. Whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, sugar and salt.
3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, buttermilk and oil until well combined; add to the dry ingredients, using a rubber spatula to mix until the batter is almost fully incorporated. Add the apricots and walnuts and mix until all traces of flour are gone.
4. Fill muffin tins 3/4 full. Bake until golden brown, the top is firm to the touch, and a toothpick comes out clean, about 30 minutes. Turn the tin around halfway through. Cool on a rack for 15 minutes. Run a knife along the edges of the muffins and unmold. Finish cooling muffins on a rack.
