Dried Fig Muffins

Dried Fig Muffins {Gluten-Free} | Wheat-Free Meat-Free

Ahh…Pamela’s Mix. I doubt I’m the first person in the gluten-free world to proclaim Pam’s Mix a lifesaver–especially when you’re first trying to figure out gluten-free baking. But even when you do start to get a handle on gluten-free baking, it’s still nice to have around.  Sometimes you don’t want to sift through a multitude of flours/starches trying to figure out the best mixture for what you’re trying to bake. Pam’s Mix just makes life easier.

The spiciness was not too pronounced in these muffins. Feel free to add more cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, or rum as you see fit.

Mike also adds that the texture was great–“nice and springy.”

  1. Those muffins look delicious! Thank God for Pamela’s Ultimate baking Mix

  2. Hi CDM,

    Thank you! Pam’s Mix really is great for when you want to whip up some muffins or biscuits real quick. So handy.

  3. Newbie on almost vegan path including no meat, no wheat, no gluten, no dairy. could use some help since i miss baked things and live in a Pamela Mix free zone.

    • Well, I guess that works out for you since Pam’s Mix has dairy in it anyway. The best advice I could give you is to try using any gluten-free all-purpose flour mix that is available to you, or to try and mix up your own all-purpose flour mix. This is a recent video from Gluten Free Girl and the Chef about making your own mix.
