Reviews for Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Muffins
"I thought these were just ok. That may be an unfair judgement because I did not have soy flour or tapioca flour, so substituted brown rice flour for them. I also used sour cream instead of the buttermilk. Definitely a more hearty, and less sweet muffin."
"Can use soymilk in place of buttermilk and fat-free milk. Also you can use cooking oil in place of butter or dairy free butter."
"I would rate this recipe with a 5 star. It was very good!"
"This is a "regular" muffin in our house! They never last very long. The 1st time I made them didn't have the buckwheat flour so used sorghum flour instead, they were very good so that is what I use all the time. My husband eats GF even though he doesn't need to, says it is just as good as what we used to eat!Sharon"
"I would need this recipe to be Dairy Free as well as Gluten Free - anyone willing to experiment and post the recipe?"
"For GF products, check out www.glutenfreemall.com - you can order any kind of flour, GF baking powder, etc. As for the oatmeal mentioned by Diane - steel-cut Irish or Scottish oats do not have gluten added. You can even get them at Wal-Mart."
"At a Health Food Store"
"You can find just about any flour online. Bob's Red Mill has so much. They also have uncontaminated oatmeal, unfortunately my healthfood store keeps ordering it and it is never available to them. I would sprinkle some oats with the choc chips on the top"
"I went today and checked at my grocery store for rice and oat flour and they didn't carry either one.Where can one find these different flours? (I'm trying to find things that I can make for My Honey, that are healthy."
"To those who don't use soy like myself, you can substitute almost any kind of gf flour for the soy flour. I would use 1/2 cup of white rice flour. I have done this with a few gf recipes. I am allergic to soy and wheat so I have to experiment with different gf flour mixtures."
"I agree with your comments about soy being added to so many products. I am allergic to soy but have found garfava flour to be a good substitute for baking at home."
"Sounded good until I saw soy flour. Soy has been sneaking into just about every product on a grocer's shelf -- and it is my understanding that people with thyroid problems should not be consuming excessive soy products. And certainly not children! Plus many people are allergic to soy products."
