Gluten-free corn muffins

Gluten free corn muffins

Did you ever buy chickpea flour and wonder after what you can make with it? I did. It doesn’t have a neutral taste but so rich in fiber and proteins!

I personally love corn muffins with its light sweet taste. Have it for breakfast with your favorite jam or for supper to replace the traditional bread bun with a warm soup or with a meal salad.

I wanted to make it completely gluten free, that’s why I replaced the usual wheat flour by quinoa, white rice and chickpea flours. If you don’t like or don’t have the last one, you could just replace it by sorghum flour.
