Baked goods (such as muffins and pancakes) can be frozen for a quick breakfast or snack. Freeze them individually and store in a freezer bag, so you can take one out at a time.
The muffin recipes below can also be baked in a loaf pan (bake for one hour). As a general rule, muffins or loaves are finished baking when:
- It is evenly browned and pulls away from the sides of the pan.
- It feels springy when you press on the top. The indentation that your finger makes should spring back and disappear.
- A toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Substitutions: some of the recipes call for wheat flour. The Gems gluten-free flour blend (see recipe below) can be substituted (cup for cup).
