Gluten Free Banana Muffins
Here is a simple recipe for Gluten Free Banana Muffins. This is a great way to use up Ripe Bananas. You could also add some chopped Walnuts into the batter.

Gluten Free Banana Muffins:
In a Medium bowl whisk together:
1-1/2 Cups Gluten Free Flour (***See Footnote***)
1 tsp. Xanthan Gum
1 tsp. Baking Powder
1 tsp. Baking Soda
½ tsp. Salt
1 tsp. Cinnamon
Using either a Potato Masher or fork:
Mash 3 Large Ripe Bananas in a shallow bowl
Combine in a Large Bowl combine with a wooden spoon:
¾ Cup Sugar
1 egg: slightly beaten
1/3 Cup Melted Butter (Cooled off a little bit)
1 tsp. Vanilla
Fold in the Flour Mixture using a Rubber Spatula. Do not over beat.
Spray Muffin tin with Cooking Spray or use Muffin Cups.
Makes 11-12 Muffins.
Using an ice cream scoop measure the batter into the prepared pan.
Top each muffin with a mixture of Cinnamon/Sugar.
Bake in a Preheated 350* Oven
25 minutes or until done.
I use a Digital Thermometer. When it reaches an internal temperature of 205* your muffins are done.
Cool for a few minutes in the pan.
Remove from the Pan and cool on a wire rack.
These muffins Freeze wonderfully.
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.
