Banana Walnut Muffins

Banana Walnut Muffins

The best banana muffins ever!

I love baking, really love baking. These muffins are comfort for your soul when you have been living gluten free and eating clean. Next time you have a bad day make these muffins and there is no question your spirits will be raised. I was having a great day today but I had bananas that required immediate attention and I was recently asked for my banana muffin recipe so thought I would share it with all of you.

These muffins are out of this world good. Do I say that about everything? I have baked a lot of muffins and this one would rival any gluten and white sugar muffin out there. I used palm sugar which is a low glycemic and low fructose sugar. It is sometimes called coconut sugar. It has a caramel flavour and looks almost like brown sugar. If you can’t find it, or don’t have it, honey works just as well. I want to mention that it is important in baking to have your ingredients at room temperature. If your eggs are in the refrigerator place them in a bowl and cover with hot tap water for a few minutes to warm them. I used goat milk butter in these muffins, but if you are not “doing” dairy coconut oil works great.
