    You can use all-purpose flour instead of the Gluten-Free Baking Mix.

    Made these muffins yesterday. The flavor and texture was good, or as good as it could possibly be with a GF flour. It was sweet enough for me but I think my kids would prefer a tad more sweetness, maybe 3/4 cup sugar instead of 2/3 cup. I had a hard time pulsing the pear quarters into smaller yet even chunks. I recommend chopping them separately and then mixing them in last.

    You have a right to your own opinion but not your own facts. Please don’t spread this kind of misinformation when you don’t know what you are talking about. Many of us really do have problems digesting gluten and it causes us severe pain. I am glad that you are not one of us or you would not have such disdain for us and maybe you would not be so annoyed that you would actually have to figure out how to substitute regular flour for gluten free flour. I know how difficult that must be for you. You don’t know how difficult it has been for so long for many of us to even find gluten free flour.

    Unfortunately that is extremely inaccurate. I have an autoimmune disease and gluten and the break down of it cause severe problems. Blendtec has helped tremendously by cutting costs and providing educational recipes like this one. I am happy you can enjoy all the gluten you like. Supplement the gluten free baking mix with flour. That’s the only difference.
