Cold Oven Gluten Free Red Lentil Muffins with Sundried Tomatoes | © 2013 | | © 2013 |

You have read that right. These savoury muffins are made with 100% red lentil flour, sundried tomatoes and shallots. They are delicious, gluten-free, and good for you as they are high in PROTEIN, and full of fiber. They are great as a side or a snack. I have also tried the recipe with smoked bell peppers instead of sundired tomatoes, both versions are very delicious, but I like ‘sundried tomatoes’ slightly more. Definitely make this again (might just top the batter with a cube of Feta).
