1 c. brown rice flour blend                          
1 tsp. baking soda                                 
2 tsp. ground ginger                               
1 tsp. cinnamon                                       
½ tsp. ground cloves

½ tsp. table salt                                       
1 c. lentil puree
2 large eggs, room temperature
2/3 c. packed brown sugar
1/3 c. canola oil
1/3 c. molasses
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. apple cider vinegar

Place rack in the middle of the oven, preheat oven to 375 F degrees. Generously grease a standard 12 cup nonstick muffin pan or line with paper liners. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together rice flour blend, baking soda, ginger, cinnamon, cloves, xanthan gum and salt until well blended. Add the lentil puree, eggs, brown sugar, oil, molasses, vanilla and vinegar and beat with an electric mixer on low speed until blended. Divide batter evenly in muffin pan.
