Gluten Free baking at it’s best: Banana Muffins

Gluten free baking can be a bit hit and miss, especially if you’re not familiar with the range of gluten free flours available. When you do get it right, the result can be amazing, as was the case with these banana muffins!

No there not paleo, and not sugar free either; but there are quite possibly the yummiest gluten free muffins I have ever tried! Invented and whipped up from scratch in the kitchen, an experiment that quite simply worked the first time round!
