Makes 12 muffins
“These muffins taste like they are made with everything that we love to eat but know isn’t good for us – all-purpose flour, refined sugar, and saturated fat. However, their taste belies their ingredients – real fruit, wholesome honey, and cholesterol-lowering almond flour. They are loaded with fiber and ‘good fat’ to keep you going all morning.”
- 2 ½ cups finely ground almond flour
- ½ tsp baking soda
- ½ tsp salt
- ¼ cup honey
- 1 Tbsp pure vanilla extract
- 3 large eggs
- 1 cup fresh or frozen berries or chopped fruit – try berries, apple or peach chunks, or mashed banana.
- Preheat the oven to 300 F and line a muffin tin with baking cups.
- Mix the almond flour, baking soda, and salt in a bowl.
- Add the honey, vanilla, and eggs to the flour mixture and whisk together until thoroughly combined and smooth.
- Add the fruit and mix well.
- Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin tin and bake until the muffins start to lightly brown and a knife comes out clean when inserted, about 25-30 minutes.

This recipe is perfect for that gluten free bread that's been sitting in your freezer since the day you went gluten free and haven't touched since that first bite. ;) I used toasted Kinnikinnick Robbins Honey Brown Rice Bread (https://secure.kinnikinnick.com/index.cfm/fuseaction/Shop.Main/productidupc/62013300011/prodCatID/1/viewtype/info.html) and it worked great! Enjoy!

"For the eggrolls I use a similar method as the crab rangoon!
Once again I don't know exactly what the measurements are, as we made this up....
1 cup of chopped cabbage
1 cup bean sprouts
1/4 cup cooked ground pork
2 tbs gluten-free soy sauce
2 tbs corn starch
Vietnamese rice paper
a couple beaten eggs
same batter recipe as above
Mix the cabbage, bean sprouts, pork, soy sauce, and corn starch in a bowl.
Brush the rice paper with the egg like before.
Roll the cabbage mixture in the rice paper (this time use the full sheet of rice paper)
Dip in the batter
Dust with rice flour
Deep fry until golden brown!

"Oh YES! And they are oh so good! We have been perfecting this recipe for a while too......Hubby agrees that they are every bit as good as the Chinese restaurant!
What you need:
Vietnamese rice paper
1 8oz pkg. of cream cheese
1 tbs of soy sauce
pkg REAL crab (they sell the real stuff in pouches now, so be sure to get it since the imitation crab has wheat in it...)
I make a VERY thin batter out of the milk, eggs, rice flour, corn starch and sesame oil. I don't know the exact measurements, but it probably isn't that important...I use equal parts corn starch and rice flour and just a little sesame oil to keep the batter from sticking in the deep fryer.
Then mix together the cream cheese, soy sauce, some chopped green onions, and a little bit (not too much) of the crab.
Then I take the rice paper and brush it with beaten egg on both sides (you may have to cut the rice paper at this point to get to the desired size. We use the large square ones, so we cut them into 4ths) Fill the middle with a spoonful of the cream cheese mix and then scrunch them up so they look like the ones from the Chinese food restaurant. We dust ours with rice flour then to keep them from sticking to the plate while we finished the rest. Once you are done with all of them dip them in the batter you prepared and deep fry at about 350* until they are brown. They are GOOD!"
