Banana,  Blueberry &  Applesauce Muffins ~ Gluten Free:

In a large bowl whisk together:
2 Cups Gluten Free Flour (***SEE FOOTNOTE***)
1 tsp. Xanthan  Gum
¾ Cup Brown Sugar
1 tsp. Cinnamon
2 tsp. Baking Powder
1 tsp. Baking Soda
½ tsp. Salt

In a serving bowl mash 2 very ripe Bananas with a Potato Masher or fork.
It should measure 1 Cup Mashed Bananas

In a Medium bowl Whisk together:
1 Cup Mashed Banana
½ Cup Unsweetened Applesauce
½ Cup Milk
¼ Cup Coconut Oil
2 Eggs slightly Beaten
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract

Mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients using a rubber spatula. Do not over mix. Mix just until all the dry ingredients have been mixed in.

In a Small bowl lightly dust with Gluten Free Flour
2 Cups Fresh Blueberries

Gently fold the Blueberries into the batter.

Spray a 12 Cup Muffin win with Cooking Spray.
Using a large ice cream scoop evenly measure out 12 Muffins.

Sprinkle each Muffin with a mixture of Cinnamon and Sugar.

Bake in a Preheated 400* oven
for 20-22 Minutes or until the center of the Muffins reach an internal temperature of 205* using a digital thermometer.

Cool the muffins in the pan for 5-10 minutes on a wire rack.

Remove the muffins and completely cool on the wire rack.

These Muffins freeze beautifully.


You can use the recipe below for Homemade Gluten Free flour mix
or buy a Pre-made Gluten Free Flour Mix
If your using a Pre-made Gluten Free Flour Mix check to see if it has Xanthan Gum,
if it does then you do not need to add Xanathan Gum to the Recipe.

Gluten Free Homemade Flour Mix for:
cookies, muffins, bars, brownies cakes, quick & yeast breads, rolls, buns and biscuits
I got this recipe at the Gluten Free Expo.

2 1/4 Cups Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Brown Rice Flour
1/4 Cup Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Potato Starch
2/3 Cup Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Tapioca Starch
3/4 Cup Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Sweet Rice Flour
1/3 Cup Cornstarch

Measure all the ingredients into a container. I used a spoon to lightly mix it together then put the cover on and shake well.
(Making sure its a tight fitting cover)

The original recipe called to add 2 tsp. Xanthan Gum
I did not do that, I like to add mine to each recipe individually.

I've checked the internet and I have seen that many people use this mix so I don't know who was the original person who made the recipe.

Taylor Pro Kitchen Waterproof Digital Thermometer:
I used a digital thermometer to check the Muffins for when they are done. Bake until it reaches an internal temperature  205*-210* in the center of the Muffin.
It's also great to check the temperature of the milk and water before adding the yeast. It's a helpful gadget.
