  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 6 cup large muffin pan.
  2. In a bowl, whisk together the rice flour, steel cut oats, flax seed, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and arrowroot powder. In a separate bowl, mix the yogurt, egg, butter, apples, and cranberry juice. Thoroughly mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients to form a slightly runny batter. Spoon evenly into the prepared muffin tin cups.
  3. Bake 30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.

Thank you for a great healthier version muffin. Other health aware cooks out there need to rate this recipe for it has been unfairly rated by people comparing it to unhealthy muffins.

My family is gluten free, and my kids have never eaten tons of sugar anyway. We LOVE this recipe! Of course, they are not like traditional muffins with wheat flour and they're not loaded up wi...

They were ok, needed more spices. Husband and kids wouldn't touch 'em until I put honey on top and sprinkled sugar and cinnamon on top and re-baked for a few minutes.

too moist with too little body/structure to it. the flavor wasn't terrible (apples=NOM), but they barely rised and were not dense enough to support all the appley goodness. i'll try again, but ...
