Hy-Vee has a Gluten Free List

I realized today that Hy-Vee has a gluten free list that they keep updated on their Web site (I think they got sick of me calling all the time!). See here for more details. Please note that it says, "to the best of our knowledge" these are the items that are gluten free.

Orange-Cranberry Muffins

I love cranberries, and have been trying to figure out recipes to make with the abundance of cranberries that have been on sale recently.

I came up with recipe tonight, and it turned out pretty well. Little Z loved it, and the orange glaze is really delicious, and is the perfect compliment to this not-too-sweet muffin.

I used freshly squeezed orange juice for this recipe, but I am sure store bought orange juice will work just as well.
Ingredients:
Cranberry Orange Muffins:
1 cup sugar
2/3 cup orange juice
1 cup unsweetened apple sauce
¼ cup canola oil
¼ tsp salt
2 cups white rice flour
3 tsp baking powder
1 cup shredded fresh cranberries (use a blender or food processor)

Orange Glaze
I didn't provide great measurements because I just eye-balled it. Just make the glaze thin enough to drizzle over the muffins.
powdered sugar (around 1/4 cup)
orange juice (the juice from a half of a freshly-squeezed orange)

Mix dry ingredients together; mix wet ingredients and add to the dry ingredients. Stir until thoroughly blended. Pour into oiled muffin tins (or muffin tins with paper cups). Bake in a preheated, 350° oven for 20 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out of the center clean.

let cool, and drizzle with orange glaze.
