Gaia inspired Gluten Free Muffins

Recently I enjoyed a relaxing stay at Gaia Retreat and Spa in northern New South Wales. Set in the picturesque Byron Bay hinterland, Gaia is a wonderful place to unwind with daily yoga, spa treatments, exercise and of course healthy eating. Head chef Dan Trewartha oversees a kitchen that is pretty much gluten free. The food is amazing and the team at Gaia happily cater for even the most tricky food allergies and intolerances. Here’s my simplified version of Gaia’s legendary GF muffins. You can visit Gaia website for the original recipe. Sadly, not for those with nut allergies. 


1 cup gluten free self raising flour
1 cup almond meal
¾ cup rapadura sugar
½ teaspoon baking powder

½ cup milk
3 eggs
1 tablespoon butter, softened
1 cup raspberries, blueberries or filling of choice. (We love diced apple, cinnamon and flaked almond)

Preheat the oven to 180℃.
Sift flour into a large bowl and add the remaining dry ingredients.
In a separate bowl lightly whisk the eggs and milk, and fold into the dry ingredients along with the butter.
Gently stir in raspberries, or your favourite fruit and nuts, chocolate etc.
Divide the mix evenly between 12 muffin cases.
Bake at 180° C for 25 minutes until golden and a skewer inserted in the middle of the muffin comes out clean.
