Gluten Free Baking

I've been on a baking kick lately since it's been a while since I've baked anything. There are quite a few baked goods recipes in the Allergy and Candida Cooking Cookbook. I made two of them last Thursday.
Quinoa and Applesauce Muffin
I liked how well the buckwheat muffins came out, I decided to try a different muffin recipe from the cookbook. This time I went with quinoa applesauce muffins. I made some more quinoa flour for the recipe. The batter was a lot more stiff than the buckwheat muffins. They didn't seem to rise as much as the others. I couldn't really taste the applesauce in them and they turned out a little dry. I ate a couple of them and put the rest in the freezer. I plan on bringing some to work in the morning and see how well they hold up after being frozen.

Zucchini Amaranth Cookies
My zucchini plants are going crazy again this year. My yellow zucchini plant is producing a lot more than the green one for some reason. This is my first year planting the yellow variety. I think it is a lot prettier but I can't really taste the difference. Since I have so much of it I decided to look for a zucchini recipe and came across zucchini amaranth cookies. These cookies also have kiwi puree in them. Besides the oil this was the only other liquid ingredient unless you count the zucchini which does have a lot of moisture in it. I ended up baking this for longer than called for because they just didn't seem to want to get done in the middle even though the outside was pretty browned. I had a couple while they were warm and they tasted ok and the inside still didn't seem to be completely done. They are a little hard since I had cooked them so long. I wouldn't call this a great recipe but I didn't expect too much from a sugar free cookie. It is good enough for a snack.
