Gluten-free wild rice muffins are made with gluten-free all purpose baking mix, a generous amount of cooked wild rice and minced onions. The result is a light and savory gluten-free muffin, great with soups and salads. If you don't want to take the time to cook whole grain wild rice, look for canned, cooked wild rice. And if you're gluten and dairy free, see the dairy free substitution.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups gluten-free all purpose baking mix ( I used NOW® Foods Gluten Free Baking Mix)
  • 2 tablespoons double action gluten-free baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cane sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon guar gum
  • 1 cup milk OR milk substitute (I used canned light coconut milk)
  • 3 lightly beaten eggs
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cups cooked, drained and cooled wild rice (Use canned cooked wild rice to save time)
  • 3/4 cup finely diced onion

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 375°F

Prepare muffin pan with olive oil baking spray or butter.

  • Combine dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl and whisk to thoroughly mix. Break up any small clumps of baking powder with your fingers.
  • Add lightly beaten eggs, milk and oil and stir to combine.
  • Fold in cooked, drained wild rice and diced onions. Stir to combine.
  • Fill muffin cups about 2/3rds full.
  • Bake for about 18 minutes or until the muffin tops are golden brown.
  • Cool muffins before removing from the pan.


Yield-About 18 muffins depending on how full you fill the muffin cups. If you fill them too full, the muffin tops may run together!
