Gluten-Free Banana Muffins

About six months or so ago my son-in-law, Patrick and our little Savannah were having some intestinal problems.  After doing a little research of symptoms decided to give the gluten-free option a try.  

Gluten-free foods are not a new thing to our family. Thirty or more years ago when there were definitely less options in stores, my father-in-law was diagnosed with Celiac decease.  We made up recipes the best we could with what was available.  
Not that I am delighted that they are having problems, I am delighted that there are so many products on the market today that make eating somewhat close to what they are used to.

We had a family dinner over the weekend and I felt that I needed to have some kind of roll to serve them. 
I always make rolls for dinner and feel bad that they can’t eat them.  This is what I came up with from varies ideas online and what I know of muffin making.

1 cup Pamela’s Bread Mix 
3/4 cup brown rice flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup sugar
2 tbsp molasses
2 large eggs
2 medium bananas
2 large eggs
1/2 cup butter, room temperature
Stir together the dry ingredients, set aside.  Cream together butter, sugar and molasses.  Add eggs one at a time.  Mash bananas.  Mix in the dry ingredients alternately with bananas beginning and ending with the flour mixture.  Scrape sides and beat for half a minute longer.  Spoon in to well greased muffin tin.  Bake in a 375 degree oven for  23-25 minutes.  Let cool 5 minutes then remove from pan.  Makes 1 dozen.
Note: Most  gluten-free recipes call for xanthan gum or some other gum for a binder.   Pamela’s Bread Mix already has it in the mix.
They turned out great.  The extras went in my freezer for snacks when they just drop in.

  1. This looks good, I love bananas! We never had any gluten intolerance in my family that I know of but I have had to make gluten free things. I will have to give these a try sometime! 🙂 Thanks for sharing
