Gluten-Free Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

I love buying the bags of ripe bananas at the store. Sometimes I get a little overzealous and end up with way too many! For this recipe I had 4 bananas to use up and these muffins were born!

Yummy! I’m a sucker for the banana chocolate combination!

How often do you make muffins? Do you ever buy the bags of ripe bananas from the story? (They’re cheaper!)

    Yum! Banana and chocolate is a perfect combo. Where do you get all your various flours?

      You can buy various flours at wegmans, whole foods, trader joes, giant eagle, and probably harris teeter too. Lots of supermarkets are making them available, now it’s just about finding the best price. I actually buy my garbanzo bean flour and all purpose gluten free flour via amazon in bulk so it’s cheaper and since I go through those two flours quicker than the others.

    Just baked these and they are delicious!! Thanks so much for an awesome GF recipe. I didn’t have the flour blend your recipe called for so I substituted in an all purpose gf blend and added xanthan gum and they turned out fabulously! They look just like regular wheat muffins and taste divine. Thanks so much! (and I now have your pumpkin muffins in the oven, cant wait to try them too!) :)
