Gluten free banana & chocolate chip muffins

choc chip muffins

Gluten free banana and chocolate chip muffins are extremely tasty and don’t require a lot of time or ingredients. They are also made in one bowl so it makes the washing up so much quicker! I used up 4 bananas that I had in the freezer. Banana cake is my usual choice for Sunday afternoon but today I thought that muffins were a good idea! I am trying to be less wasteful with food and have been closely following Nancy Birtwhistle for inspiration. She has so many great ideas for cooking and cleaning as well as gardening. For this recipe, you could make it vegan by substituting the butter and the eggs with plant based milk, butter or avocado oil. Some recipes also use apple cider vinegar. I chose to use light brown sugar but you could use granulated sugar, but the colour of the muffins will look different.

I used the James martin muffin tray for these and they turned out pretty well I think! This muffin recipe is very versatile as well. Instead of using chocolate chips, you could use blueberries or raisins.
