Gluten Free Dandelion Lemon Muffins with Dandelion Honey Butter


Mmmmmmmm. That's what I said when I took my first bite of these super tasty muffins with a dab of the dandelion honey butter. This was my first time making these and I am so impressed that I have decided I must make them every spring when the dandelions first bloom.

I adapted the recipe from this book: Cooking With Flowers, if anyone is interested in learning about edible flowers and cooking with them. I made this recipe gluten free and added lemon zest which was not in the original recipe, but I felt like lemon would be a great addition to the dandelion and I was right. I tweaked a few other things from the book, but used the book recipe as a base. What I came up with was wonderful.

Here is my exact recipe for Gluten Free Dandelion Lemon Muffins

Preheat oven 375 degrees

1 cup white gluten free flour blend (I used Bob's Red Mill 1 for 1 Gluten Free Flour)

1 cup homemade hearty gluten free flour mix

(It's a combination of buckwheat, almond, and oat flours. You can use two cups of whatever gluten free flour you have instead if you don't have these.)

2 tps. baking powder

1/2 tps. sea salt

1 cup dandelion petals (about 50 flowers)

The zest of one lemon

1/3 cup dried cranberries

1/3 cup chopped almonds

1 1/2 cups almond milk

4 TBS raw local honey

1/4 cup almond oil

1 egg

Combine all ingredients together until wet. Use a paper lined or well greased muffin tin. Fill 3/4 of the way full. Bake for 20 minutes.

Now for the Dandelion Honey Butter

1/2 a stick or 1/4 cup of butter at room temperature

1 TBS raw local honey

the petals off of four dandelions

Stir together until well blended and store in fridge.

These muffins have a nice light flavor, not too sweet, but not bland either.

The Dandelion Honey Butter gives it a little more flavor.

Just a wonderful treat for a beautiful spring day.

Blessings All.
