Gluten Free Banana Walnut Muffins Recipe
One of my son Colin’s favorites happens to be this Gluten Free Banana Walnut Muffins Recipe and admittedly I have been known, in the past, to hold them back as bribes to get him to clean the kitchen – even though he no longer lives at home or even in the same state as me. And even though, technically, he is a guest in my home when he comes to visit.
I feel no guilt for this. The thirty-six hours of labor pretty much give me a blank check for life, don’t you think? After all, what greater gift is there than the gift of life? (And yes, he has heard all of this about a million times!)
But actually, he is happy to clean up after I bake these muffins because he loves them so much, and because he probably thinks they are difficult to make. We really don’t need to tell him how easy they are!
Recipe notes: I use my own gluten free flour blend in these muffins but you can use any kind you like or make your own. I also always bake with Wholesome! Organic Sugar. To make these dairy free, simply substitute grapeseed or other flavorless vegetable oil for the butter and rice or coconut milk for the whole milk. Don’t like walnuts or can’t eat them? Sub with another nut or just leave them out.
1½ cups all-purpose gluten free flour
1 cup organic sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon kosher salt
3 ripe bananas
8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
1 large egg
½ cup whole milk
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup chopped walnuts
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 18 standard sized muffin cups with paper liners.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
In a large mixing bowl, mash 2 of the bananas well with a fork. Add the melted butter, egg, milk, and vanilla, and whisk well. Add the banana mixture to the flour mixture and stir until all the flour is blended into the batter. Dice the remaining banana and fold into the batter along with the nuts. Divide the batter evenly among the prepared muffin cups.
Bake the muffins for 30 – 35 minutes, or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let cool for 5 minutes in the pan.
