These gluten free savoury muffins are delicious straight out the oven but also freeze well to be warmed again another day.
As usual, a clash of international ingredients, Indian chickpea flour, Mexican masa lista, Thai tapioca flour and Spanish smoked paprika, they all come together to make a light gluten free muffin that I think is hard to tell apart from a regular muffin!
For a vegetarian option, omit the bacon and add 20g chopped fresh chives.
Makes 12 muffins.
75g chickpea flour/besan
50g tapioca flour

In a jug, combine the milk, yogurt and egg, beat well.
In a large bowl, combine the chickpea flour, tapioca flour, masa lista, baking powder, salt, smoked paprika, cheese and most of the bacon, combine until the cheese and bacon has a floury coating.
