Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Banana Nut Muffins

Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Banana Nut Muffins

In a Medium bowl whisk together:
1-1/2 Cups Gluten Free Flour Blend (I used Bobs Red Mill)
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 on a plate

Combine in a Large Bowl 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.

Add 1/2 cup Chopped Pecans (or walnuts)
1 cup Mini Dark Chocolate Chips

Spray Muffin tin with Cooking Spray or use Muffin Cups.

Makes 12 Muffins.

Using an ice cream scoop measure the batter into the prepared pan.
Sometimes I 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.

Chia Pudding and Chia Jam ~ Gluten Free ~ Dairy Free ~ Sugar Free ~ Low Carb

Hi everyone,
Here is my recipe for the Chia Pudding and Jam:
Vanilla Chia Breakfast Pudding ~ Dairy Free ~ Gluten Free ~ Sugar Free
In a medium bowl whisk together:
2/3 Cups Chia Seeds (I used Bobs red Mill)
2 Cups Unsweetened Almond Milk (Or any Milk of your choice)
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
Whisk for 2-3 Minutes
Let sit for 10 Minutes
Whisk for about 20 more seconds
Cover the Bowl and place in the Refrigerator
Keep refrigerated for at least 4 hours or overnight, the Chia Seeds will absorb the liquid.
I do not add any sweetener to the Pudding. The fruits that I add have enough sweetness for my taste.
If your want it sweeter add some honey when your whisking it together.
In the morning spoon a serving into a bowl 
You can serve it cold or warmed up. I prefer it warm.
Top with anything of your choice
I top mine with a variety of Fresh, Frozen or Dried fruits or my homemade jam, Nuts and Seed Mix and sometimes Cacao Nibs and or Cinnamon.
I buy my Nuts and Seeds at Trader Joes. I find there prices are the best.
In a small bowl I mix together
All unsalted and roasted:
Pumpkin Seeds
Sunflower Seeds
and any nuts of your choice that have been chopped up
Unsweetened Coconut
Sprinkle on desired amount of Nut mixture and Fruit or Jam.
This makes 4-5 servings
Recipe for Chia Jam ~  Cranberry Blueberry Jam:
I add desired amount of the fruit to a sauce pan and cook over medium high heat which releases the juices and pops the Berries. If they are sticking to the
pan add a little bit of water. Using a spoon to mix.
Cook until desired consistency. Sprinkle on Cinnamon to taste, if you want it sweet add about 2 TBL Raw Honey then added 2 TBL Chia Seeds to thicken it. 
Pour into a bowl or Mason Jar and refrigerate. This can be made with any frozen berries or Peaches.
Enjoy :)
