Gluten free muffins and ice cream

I made a second attempt at gluten free muffins.  Not as successful as the first attempt.Very dense and heavy.  Still trying to find the ideal baking time.  Baked for 33 minutes but could have probably used more time. Also omitted the xanthan gum as I have a friend who can’t eat it.  I’ll add it again next time and see if it affects the texture. Also used quinoa flour which gives it a nutty taste. Will see if I can find a substitute for that too.

I stopped by My Favorite Ice Cream Shoppe yesterday. Been meaning to try this one for a while. I thought that paying $3.25 for a fairly large single scoop was a good deal.  The ice cream was pretty good, I think the flavor was mud slide. Tasted like mocha with vanilla. Perfect treat after swimming. They have 72 flavors, I think I will be back for more.
