How to Make The Best Banana Muffins and GFCF
- Preheat oven to 400 F
- Mash bananas.
- Using electric mixer or stand mixer add sugar and slightly beaten eggs along with the melted coconut oil. (coconut oil becomes liquid at a warm room temperature and hard at a cool room temperature- don't overheat the oil- you just want it liquid not hot)
- Combine the dry ingredients, in a separate bowl, add to the banana mixture a little at a time mixing well in between each addition.
- Add chosen stir-ins to the banana mixture and mix lightly.
- Spoon into well-greased muffin tins. (Or use paper muffin liners)
Bake at 400 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes or until done.
Makes 12 muffins.
- A Note about Gluten and Casein Free Ingredients: Since my family began this diet, we have discovered that you always have to read the labels on the foods you buy. This week when shopping I may buy something that is clearly gfcf and next week when I look for the same item I will notice they have changed the ingredient list adding dry milk, or maltodextrin, or some other questionable ingredient. I find that it's best to stick to unprocessed foods whenever possible- make it from scratch. My son is on the autism spectrum, its not the end of the world if he gets a little gluten or casein, while it may ruin his day, it isn't life threatening. I always watch him for symptoms and note the offending food. Please keep this in mind while selecting your ingredients for my GFCF recipes. Happy Careful Shopping! :)
