Gluten-Free Apple Cider Muffins

Around this time of year, apple orchards beckon with their numerous apple varieties, apple pie, carmel apples, apple cider and... apple donuts. I do want to try my hand at apple donuts but today I settled for muffins. These would be great with strudel topping, too!

1/2 cup brown rice flour
1/4 cup quinoa flakes (or rolled oats)
1/4 cup almond meal
1 Tbs. coconut flour
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice (or use cinnamon with a tiny pinch of nutmeg and cloves)
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda

4 Tbs. vegetable oil
2 eggs
2 Tbs. shredded apple with juices squeezed out (could use applesauce as well)
1/2 c apple cider (I used Knudsen's Cider and Spice with no sugar added)
1 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 350. Mix dry ingredients well. Blend we ingredients in a small bowl and then add wet to dry, mixing just until moistened. Pour evenly into 12 prepared muffin liners and bake for 16-20 minutes.

Totally a worthwhile study break!
