Baking tools and kitchen utensils

I’ve used reusable silicone muffin cups for this recipe and the muffins come out perfectly every time! You can find them here on Amazon (#ad).

If you’re looking to start baking gluten-free treats at home, there are a few baking tools that you’ll need to get started. A large mixing bowl, a scale, a dough scraper and measuring cups and spoons are a few basics. A stand mixer or a hand mixer with dough hooks can also be helpful. I just love my KitchenAid Artisan stand mixer and can’t do without, buy here (#ad) on Amazon.
