Place tea bags in a 1-cup glass measure.  Add water to equal 1 cup.  Steep tea for 10 minutes.

Squeeze all liquid from tea bags into cup.  Discard tea bags.

Heat oven to 350 F.  Spray 12-cup muffin tins with baking spray; set aside.

In large mixing bowl add brown sugar, vegetable oil, molasses, and eggs.  Mix at high speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy (1 to 2 minutes). 

Add tea concentrate and ginger.  Continue mixing at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed (1 minute).

In medium bowl stir together gluten-free flour, rolled oats, baking powder, baking soda, Xanthan Gum,  and salt.  Add to tea mixture.  Mix just until moistened.

Stir in currants.  Fill muffin tins about 2/3 full.  Sprinkle top of each muffin with about ½ teaspoon sugar.

Bake until very light brown (14 to 18 minutes) or until wooden pick inserted in center of muffin comes out clean.  Remove from oven.  Cool.


*What is Gluten Free and Gluten-Free Recipes?

All vegetables, fruit, meat, fish, poultry, eggs, beans, nuts, rice, potatoes, and corn are gluten free in their natural state.  Also milk and most hard cheeses and creams are naturally gluten free. Recipes using any of these items would be naturally gluten free.

The recipes designated Gluten free do not include the following ingredients: wheat, rye, barley, or oats; or ingredients that might contain these, but Bigelow Tea does not assume liability for information reported on our recipes.

However, anyone who needs or wants to follow a gluten free (GF) diet should check ingredients and products to ensure they are GF. (For example, sesame seeds are naturally GF, but it's always wise to check with the manufacturer to make sure that gluten was not introduced to the product during processing.)

Bigelow Tea makes no guarantees that the recipes are appropriate for your diet. Individuals should consult with their physician or other medical professional.
