Applesauce Oat Muffins GF

Put following into a large mixing bowl:

1 cup quick oats
1 cup soy milk + 1 tbsp. vinegar
3 tbsp. agave syrup

Stir and let sit while you prepare the eggy flax mixture:

1 tbsp. golden flaxseed
3 tbsp. water
2 tbsp. olive oil

Stir and let rest while you sift together the dry ingredients:

1/2 cup brown rice flour
1/4 cup plus 2 tbsp. almond flour
3 tbsp. brown sugar
2 tbsp. tapioca flour
1 tsp. cinnamon
1-1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt

Grate one of the following:

an apple
a carrot
a small zucchini

Mix into 1/2 cup applesauce.

Mix eggy flax, oatmeal and applesauce mixture together. Stir in your dry ingredients. Divide between 12 muffin cups (lined with paper cups or sprayed with oil).  Use about 1/4 cup batter each. Bake at 375 for about 20-22 minutes. Drizzle with a small amount of icing glaze (icing sugar plus water) and sprinkle with cinnamon. I did not have any icing sugar in the house so if you have a magic bullet it's easy to make a small quantity from any white sugar you have. The nice thing about making your own is that there is no added cornstarch like there is in commercial icing sugar.
