Sun Dried Tomato & Chive Muffins

I have this jar of dried cherry tomatoes in the pantry.   A jar of  homegrown white currant cherry tomatoes that I sliced in half and dried in my dehydrator last fall when the cherry tomatoes were more than a little abundant.  I pulled that jar out over the weekend, hungry for some homegrown tomatoes and wanting something savory and light.  Savory muffins seemed like a good way to go, something light made gluten-free with coconut flour and a bit of cornmeal for crunch.  These Sun Dried Tomato & Chive Muffins are tasty alongside a fresh and crispy salad and no doubt would go equally well with a bowl of homemade soup.

I’m calling them sun dried but by my own admission used tomatoes dried in a dehydrator and they were mighty tasty.  If you happen to have or buy actual sun dried tomatoes, they would of course work and taste wonderfully.

These muffins are light and moist with just a hint of natural tomato sweetness, while being completely infused with fresh garden flavor.  I liked the bit of crunch from the cornmeal but if that’s not your thing, you could probably add another Tablespoon or two of coconut flour and have great results.

If you're not gluten-free, is wheat flour a 1:1 substitution for coconut flour? That sounds like a great flavor combo and one of this days I'll stock up on coconut flour for gluten-free friends, but meanwhile...

It is not a 1:1 substitution. Coconut flour needs much more liquid than wheat flour. I'll be honest, I'm not sure how to make this work off the top of my head with wheat flour. Sorry about that.
