Savory lentil muffins

If you or your kids have a restricted diet and breads are a thing of the past, you have to try these simple-ingredient muffins!  These are a staple in our home.

Let me start by telling you what is NOT in them before we get to the ingredients.   No gluten, no casein, no eggs, this is a lower oxalate and Failsafe bread!!  

What IS in them?
-1 cup of red lentils (soak overnight, they will be more than one cup once soaked) 
-1 tsp sea salt
-1 tsp baking soda
-1/2 tsp cream of tartar
-spice(s) of choice (I chose chives)

Put all of the ingredients into a blender, add water so that it is at about halfway up to the height of the lentils.   Blend, fill cupcake cups about 3/4 full and bake on 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.  Makes 8 muffins. Voila!

Thank you for this recipe! I have 2 little girls in a similar situation as your sons were and I had too had been struggling with different diets and treatments. We are now at Low oxalate diet and camel milk. I came across your blog while searching for another family who was doing low oxalate and camel milk as well. Because they are allergic to eggs,dairy, nuts and many other food intolerances getting enough calories in has been very difficult. How do you manage to keep them so healthy looking? LOD with egg and dairy restrictions is so limiting.By the eway the boys are beautiful!

Thank you Joanna,
My boys eat very well, very healthy and we rotate their foods. They have a lot of healthy snacks that are approved, like roasted chickpeas that are pre-soaked and boiled first) and pealed apples with sunbutter. Eliminating the problematic foods will have your girls healthy-looking (and feeling) in no time!!

I've got an increasingly long list of food intolerances, which is frustrating to cook for. Found your recipe today and made them this evening — very yummy! Thank you! Finally, a savoury snack that isn't bad for me!
