Cheesy Sundried Tomato, Walnut & Thyme Muffins

You can make about 24 mini muffins or 12 average sized delicious servings from this recipe. They are totally yummy and it’s really nice to offer a savoury bake at the start of a Coffee Morning, Afternoon Tea or just as part of a buffet.

For a healthier version, I replaced the flour with Spelt Flour which is far less processed and easier for you to digest and it worked well.

The type of cheese you use is up to you but you do need a good strong tasting cheese to get that hit. I used fresh grated Parmesan and it worked so well with the sundried tomato and thyme. I’ve previously used Mature Cheddar also but I would suggest you increase the quantity.

Gluten Free White Bread Recipe

After the success of the Gluten Free Brown Bread Recipe, link here: https://cozebakes.com/2019/08/24/gluten-free-brown-bread/  I decided to try a white bread one. I’m not a fan of white bread and rarely eat it. The highly processed and additive full versions add nothing to a healthy diet so why include it?

Then I found this recipe, also from the folks at Doves Farm for their white bread recipe and thought it was worth a try. I’m converted! Plain and simple, totally converted! It is so delicious and cuts so beautifully, plus I know exactly what the ingredients are. I had no bloating or feeling of being unwell after eating it which was a very pleasant surprise.

Honestly I spent that much time just looking at the results of this recipe, it’s crazy but I couldn’t believe that gluten free white bread could turn out so beautifully, cut so well, taste so good and keep longer than a lot of other gluten free breads I’ve made in the past.

Gluten Free Brown Bread

I recently found brown bread flour from Doves Farm. I use their flours in most of my gluten free baking. The quality is always excellent.

To make gluten free brown bread, it requires a mix of a few different flour types with lots of trials so to find one that’s been created, tested and is successful is such a joy! It’s great they have taken all the hard work out of trial and error with different flour blends and found the perfect combination!

The first time I made this recipe, I followed it to the letter and it resulted in a totally delicious and authentic brown bread. Such happiness ensued I can’t tell you! After that, I started to add my own twists and each loaf has been perfect.
