Muffins and a new toy!

Today I woke up with the 3 over-ripe bananas to deal with. One, sadly was past saving. BUT the other two went to make some super yummy muffins that taste like dessert.

Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

  • 2 cups all purp. GF flour + xanthan gum
  • 3/4 cup sugar + some for sprinkling
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 bananas, pureed
  • 1/2 cup soy milk
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract + 1/2 tspn almond (or other) extract
  • 1 1/2 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375°F.
In a large bowl combine all dry ingredients. Make a well in the center and add all wet ingredients. Mix until well combined. Fold in chocolate chips.
Fill liners almost all the way full. Sprinkle with granulated sugar.

Bake for 26-30 minutes.
Let cool for a few minutes in the tin, then transfer to a cooling rack.

Makes 12 muffins.

Unfortunately, I didn’t have time to enjoy one as I had to dash out to make a small purchase…

Everyone, say hello to the beginning:

So excited! I can’t wait to use my very own convection oven. We are still looking for a space, but I could not pass up the opportunity for this. Great deal!

I’m also very excited to warm up one of those muffins and smooth a bit of peanut butter on and devour it!

Hello. My name is Amanda. I'm one year gluten free, and can honestly say it's been a long time since I felt this good. This change was not by choice. When I first had the suspicion I needed to switch, I was so upset. You see, I LOVE to bake. I bake bread. I bake cupcakes. When the holidays roll around, I bake cookies like a fiend. I thought I would have to give all that up, and well, I really didn't want that to happen. But then I started researching and shopping and realized that I wouldn't be missing out on all that much. As it turns out, some of my already favorite foods are already Gluten Free! So when a doctor told me I needed to make the big change, I wasn't nearly as upset as expected. In fact, I was motivated. This was my new challenge. I'd been baking vegan for a while already, so Gluten Free should be no problem. My goal is to make (and photograph, as that is my another love) delicious Gluten Free goodies that EVERYONE, even those who can still have gluten can enjoy.
