Banana Chip Muffins (Gluten Free)


WANT MUFFINS BUT WITHOUT THE GUILT OF EATING SWEETS?

I present you with a gluten free, nutritious recipe that will be become a staple in your house.  These banana muffins are perfect to have for breakfast, snack, dessert, for a birthday party or a special celebration.  I am so glad I was able to incorporate quinoa flour in the recipe because it adds a tremendous amount of protein and fiber.  Quinoa also has all nine essential amino-acids and other important nutrients.


INGREDIENTS

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 350° F.
  • Spray muffin cups or line with paper cups.
  • In a medium bowl, combine flours, baking powder and salt and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine oil, honey, vanilla extract, mashed bananas, and egg.
  • Using a spatula, fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, until just combined.
  • Stir in the chocolate chips.
  • Spoon the batter evenly into the prepared pan, filling the cups 2/3 full.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Cool for 10 minutes in the pan or wire rack.

These muffins have such beautiful consistency and I bet no one would tell they are gluten free and packed with great ingredients.

Buen provecho!
