Banana Oat Muffins (GF DF)
A sweet, satisfying little banana muffin that is both gluten and dairy free.
I am going to quick throw down this muffin recipe with not much to say about it because my children are in their afternoon quiet times and I only have about 2.5 minutes of uninterrupted peace...hopefully. This is a recipe that came together as I was trying to figure out a friend's dry-gluten-free muffin incident. It has an extremely moist batter in hopes that it will work well across brands of brown rice flour and other ingredients. I have delved into gluten-free baking this year and am learning that it can be a finicky little beast. Peek in the little window on your oven at the muffins periodically as they bake and pull them out when they look just done or even slightly underdone even if the bake- time I give you hasn't been reached; oven behavior can vary. Scoop your flour with a spoon into your measuring cup rather than scooping a big scoop out of the bag with the measuring cup. Stir until wet and dry ingredients are incorporated, do not over mix them. Try to read my mind as to what brands I use of every ingredient. Just kidding. Try yours and see how it goes! Let me know because now I am curious.

5 medium sized, ripe bananas
5 tbs of coconut oil, melted
5 tsp apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup honey

1/4 cup hemp hearts
2 tbs grass fed collagen powder

Line muffin tins with muffin papers and pour a heaping 1/4 cup of the mixture into each tin, you want it to come to about a centimeter below the top of the muffin pan.
