Making muffins is very easy. It does not require any electrical mixers, so it is quick to prepare. I will share with you some gluten-free muffin recipes, and today we will start with orange poppy seeds muffins. As I had some leftovers of the candied oranges that were not dipped in chocolate, I used them in this recipe and they turned out delicious! Your kids will love these muffins.

Ingredients

Servings: 12 muffins

- ¾ cup milk (I used soymilk for a dairy free option)
- 1 tbsp. poppy seeds
- 2 ½ cups gluten-free all-purpose flour
- ¾ cup sugar (or 1 cup if you like it very sweet)
- 1/3 cup coconut oil
- 2 eggs, lightly whisked
- 2 tsp orange zest
- ½ cup fresh orange juice
- 1 ½ tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
- 10 pieces candied oranges (optional)

  1. Pre-heat oven to 190°C.
  2. Soak the poppy seeds in the milk for few minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, mix all the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking powder, and baking soda)
  4. Mix all the wet ingredients (eggs, orange juice, orange zest, oil, and the milk with poppy seeds)
  5. Fold wet ingredients into dry ingredients and mix gently with a spatula or a wooden spoon.
  6. Cut the candied oranges into small pieces and fold them into the batter.
  7. Grease a 12-cup muffin tin and fill the cups with the batter.
