This recipe took more than a few tries to get right. I have a few different gluten-free flours, so trying to find the one that makes the best muffin can be tricky. But I think I got it.
Gluten allergies seem to be more prevalent these days. I don’t know if it’s because we know more about it than we did previously, but I’m sure knowing what the cause of all those upset stomachs were brings peace to a large group of people. I’m so glad there are so many different options for people with gluten allergies. These gluten free banana bread muffins are probably my favorite gluten free recipe I’ve baked so far.
My favorite thing about any banana recipe is the smell that floats through the house when the muffins are in the oven baking. When I made this recipe the other day, I put the muffins in the oven and went to lay my daughter down for nap. Walking down the stairs after getting her down, and smelling that baked goodness, just gave me a feeling of homeyness. Banana bread, or in this case banana muffins, just feels like home to me.

It takes some work to figure out gluten-free baking, doesn’t it?!
