Banana or Pumpkin Muffins (Gluten-Free)
In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease. In 1998 I foundedÂ The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore!, and I am the co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.View all articles by Scott Adams
3 medium ripe Banana's smashed or 9 ounces of pumpkin
1/3 maple syrup
1 teaspoon GF vanilla (I use Frontier Alcohol-Free from Fair trade)
Mix together and set aside.
Toppings- 1 cup sugar and 2 teaspoons cinnamon. Mix together and set aside (place into shaker like salt or recycled pumpkin spice container).
Muffin Mix Ingredients:
2 cups gluten-free flour
1 teaspoon xanthan
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pumpkin spice
2 table spoons buttermilk powder
2 eggs beaten
1/3 cup vegetable oil
½ cup water
Combine all dry ingredients into a mixing bowl, make a well in the middle and add the wet, stir with a mixing spoon softly until combined--don't stir just blend. Gently fold in bananas or pumpkin mixture with a knife until blended, then let rest for 7-10 minutes and fill foil cupcake papers and place on a cookie sheet (makes 13-15 muffins). Top with topping mixture and bake at 375F degrees for 10- 15 minutes or until done. Place on wire rack until cool.
