1/2 cup canola oil
1 cup plus
2 tablespoons agave nectar
1 1/2 cups unsweetened applesauce
1 tablespoon ground ginger
3 cups Basic Gluten-Free Flour Mix

2 tablespoons raisins or currants

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and line muffin pan with 12 muffin liners.

  3. Add the applesauce and ginger and mix for about 20 seconds.
  4. In separate bowl, combine the flour mix, xanthan gum, baking soda, and salt.
  5. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix until just combined.
  6. Turn off mixer and fold in raisins/currants.
  7. Fill the liners to the rim with batter.
