Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Gluten Free Living – 2022

These Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins are just awesome. Really. For those of you who prefer or need to eat gluten free, what a way to get an enjoyable breakfast muffin! These muffins have crunch from the walnuts, spice from the cinnamon and nutmeg, great texture thanks to the bananas and of course, chocolaty deliciousness from all the chocolate chips. I used Bob’s Red Mill Baking flour (gluten free) and it worked perfectly for this recipe.

Back in May, one of the young gals in our church had her first baby. She asked for gluten free meals. I took one of my favorite Banana Muffin recipes and decided to sub out gluten free flour for the regular. I made NO other adjustments. These muffins turned out wonderfully. They puffed up nice and big and had a delectable taste and texture. Even my husband didn’t realize he was eating a gluten free muffin when I handed him one.

I ended up making them a Gluten Free Pot Roast, Creamy Sweet Corn, a Gluten Free Strawberry Cobbler and these wonderful muffins for breakfast. I told them they would freeze wonderfully if they didn’t want all of them at once! 🙂 They told me later they enjoyed that meal for three days!

Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins are wonderful for weekend breakfasts, company or even holiday breakfasts. Especially if you have friends or family with gluten intolerance. If not, just use regular flour. That works too. 🙂 Regardless, you will enjoy every bite of these drool-worthy muffins. Prepare to swoon!

These muffins actually freeze well so you can make them up in advance if you need to and then thaw before using.

One of the reasons my muffins puff up and have nice tops (that don’t sink in the middle) is because I start with a high temperature (425 degrees) for five minutes. Then I reduce the heat to 350 for the remainder of the baking time. That allows the muffins to lift and then the lower temperature sets the muffins so they hold their shape.

Here’s what I did.
