2 cups brown rice flour
1/2 cup millet flour
1 tablespoon non-alum baking powder
1/2 teaspoon sea salt (optional)
1 cup water or apple juice concentrate
1/4 cup unrefined vegetable oil

Combine all dry ingredients.
Mix all liquids; add to dry ingredients. Pour into well-oiled pan.
For muffins, fill cups 2/3rds to 3/4ths full and bake at 375-degrees 15 to 20 minutes.
For bread, bake 40 to 45 minutes or until done.
Nutrition Nibbles on Millet
Millet is a often overlooked grain that is mildly sweet and nutty in flavor. It's very versatile and has a comforting quality that makes it great for winter dishes. Millet provides fiber, iron, B vitamins, manganese, phosphorus and magnesium.
There are many varieties of millet, but the most commonly used is yellow proso, usually pre-packaged or in bulk bins at your local health food store. (Don't eat millet made for pets - it's not fit for human consumption).
