Gluten-Free Bran Muffins recipe

This morning I capped off a great workout week with a light run and I wanted to make  gluten free muffins for a weekend treat. My sister Shannon was looking for a muffin recipe that was gluten free so that she can eat and her kids will still like. We both have a similar palate for molasses and spice so I thought I would experiment with a “bran muffin” without wheat or gluten.gluten free bran muffins
I started with Elana’s Pantry bran muffin recipe and adapted it to what I wanted. I added molasses and reduced the dates and put in half a banana and added a little coconut flour. This muffin is so good with a smack of organic butter.Bran Muffins with Organic Butter
