I made this recipe off a variation from Easy Banana Muffins by Michelle Baker recipie number 8603 Since GF is a hard thing to do and get good results, I was amazed at how great these tasted...almost like they had the gluten!


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees fahrenheit.
  2. In one bowl sift together all dry ingredients.
  3. In a second bowl combine mashed bananas, egg (beaten) and melted butter.
  4. Add dry ingredients to wet, mix well.
  5. Spoon mixture into lined muffin pan. (minxture will be thick).
  6. Bake for 20 minutes.

This was my first attempt at making something from scratch that is gluten-free. I did not have the all-purpose flour it called for so I used oat bran. I did not have xanthan gum either. I subbed applesauce in for the melted butter for a little healthier version and I added about 1/4 c (or less) of mini chocolate chips. I was skeptical because the batter was so grainy, but when they cooked the graininess was gone. My kids didn't even notice the difference between the way I normally make them. I would make these again.

Tried this with all-purpose GF flour and no rice flour. Also substituted stevia plus and molasses for the sugar. Texture is ok for GF, but I think I may try some buckwheat flour next time
