"These muffins are so good! You can't even tell they are GFCF. Truly! I would have taken a picture, but we ate them too fast" My favorite GF flour mix is **GLAD Flour Mix from FrugalAbundance.com. Mix and match the stir-ins I feel like everything is better with at least a little chocolate but maybe that's just me :)

How To Make the best banana muffins and gfcf

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 400 F
  • 2
    Mash bananas.
  • 3
    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)
  • 4
    Combine the dry ingredients, in a separate bowl, add to the banana mixture a little at a time mixing well in between each addition.
  • 5
    Add chosen stir-ins to the banana mixture and mix lightly.
  • 6
    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! :)
