In my house, between my 2 kids and my husband and I, we eat a lot of snacks. I mean A LOT.  There’s morning snack, afternoon snack, a late night snack (for the grown ups), there’s munching, there’s grazing…it goes on and on.  All that being said, when we went GF I scrambled to find snacks. We love fruit, but after suggesting “how about a banana” for the millionth time in a row, the troops got restless.  I baked multiple batches of muffins which weren’t enjoyable to eat, and then……..I found a muffin recipe!   Gluten-Free Baking Classics (Annalise G. Roberts) had the backbone of a muffin recipe that I knew would be great and adaptable. Here’s my take on it:

Banana Muffin

2 large eggs, room temperature

5 tablespoons milk (any kind will do)

6 tablespoons oil

2 very ripe bananas, mashed

2 cups Gluten Free Flour Mix

2/3 cup granulated sugar

1 tablespoon baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

3/4 teaspoon xanthan gum

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon cinnamon


Preheat oven to 350°. Grease muffin pans with cooking spray (or oil)


Combine eggs, milk and oil in mixer. Beat well to combine. Add bananas, mixing to combine.

In a separate bowl, combine dry ingredients, whisking to ensure they have mixed well. Slowly add dry ingredients into the mixer with the wet ingredients.

Using a muffin scoop (or a spoon) fill muffin pans 2/3 full. Bake 18mins, or until golden brown. Remove from oven and cool
