#887021 Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Posted by on 03 September 2013 - 08:31 AM

Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins


These muffins are full of peanut butter and banana flavor! Make a batch of these and put them in the freezer so you can have an easy breakfast, lunch, or snack!
Recipe from: Michelle @ MyGluten-freeKitchen.com
Recipe type: Muffins & Quick Breads


  • 2 cups (8.5 oz) gluten-free all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. xanthan gum
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ cup packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup butter or margarine, melted
  • ½ cup peanut butter (I used Creamy Natural Jif, feel free to use chunky)
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 very ripe bananas, mashed (=1-1/2 cups)
  • 2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chocolate chips 


  1. Preheat oven to 325°. Line muffin pan with paper muffin liners or spray well with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk all dry ingredients together until combined – flour, xanthan gum, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and sugars.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix the softened butter, peanut butter, eggs, mashed ripe bananas and vanilla extract.
  4. Make a well in the center of dry ingredients and pour in the wet ingredient mixture. Stir until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips.
  5. Use a cookie scoop or about ⅓ cup measure to fill muffin cups about ⅔ full. Bake at 325° for 18-20 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean when inserted in center of a muffin. Cool 5 minutes in pan, then remove to cooling racks. Serve warm or at room temperature.
  6. Store at room temperature, or place in Ziploc freezer bag to store in freezer.


If using a gluten-free flour that has xanthan gum already in it, then omit the xanthan gum listed in this recipe. To make dairy-free, use your favorite dairy-free alternative in place of the butter and use dairy-free chocolate chips. You can easily adapt these to mini muffins, jumbo muffins or mini loaves, just adjust the baking time. As always, be sure to double-check all of your ingredients to ensure they are gluten-free.

#886093 Is It Possible To Get Gluten From The Dishwasher?

Posted by on 27 August 2013 - 11:51 AM

Sorry, but I was only doing my job as a moderator to control the discussion on the thread. Rarely do I do such a thing (as you may have noticed, I am almost always among the first ones to respond to a newbie's cry for help)

Haven't I answered many of your questions, hon?


and I in no way was talking about you taking a rest or no longer posting.No need for you to get mad and leave.


I meant it as "let's give the topic a rest " because we have discussed it already many times and the answer was given and to keep repeating it and to speculate about it as being harmful

to celiacs in any way serves no purpose.


I am sorry if that offended you because I meant nothing personal. I think perhaps you misunderstood

what I meant, but if so, I apologize if It hurt your feelings.


I'd also like to add that when someone comments without reading all the posts on a lengthy thread, he or she may not see all the exchanges and may leap to a conclusion, which is often unfair.


The discussion about whether a plate would be harmful because of gluten in a dishwasher did in fact become an issue about cleanliness in general.


So, please guys--read everything before posting as it can sometimes cause confusion and misunderstandings.

I understand every thread has to be monitored but honestly I didn't see where it was getting out of hand.  BTW I am not the one that said they were mad n is leaving.

#880800 Ds And I Seem To Keep Getting Glutened

Posted by on 23 July 2013 - 02:13 PM

I feel like I'm really careful but lately a couple times a week I'm getting pain and brain fog and he's getting D and grumpiness. I know I need to go back to basics but a couple things that I thought might be causing issues, though it's hard to say when we get triggered:

-Think Think Bars, I have one a day and try not to let ds have them but he always nags for bites

-quinoa? possible?

-Sukhi's sauce mixes (Indian). I think these are the likely culprit and will eliminate but they are dedicated gluten-free and vetted by Sprouts, which checks pretty well before putting their store gluten-free label on and much of the Indian diet is naturally gluten-free, so cc seems less likely...


I don't think these are other food sensitivities because for me, it's an intestinal burn and fogginess that can only come from one thing. I also get plain old disgustingly sick from oats, watching out for those more vigilantly too.


Any tips on above brands appreciated. Any other bars to try? I have a very hard time finding things I can eat in the morning. Even before diagnosis, I needed to have something that I could make myself eat first thing. I make my own lara bars for the boys but want something less sugary for me.

Are you rinsing your quinoa before cooking, even if it states already rinsed do it anyway.  I wasn't rinsing mine and it was making me sick once I started rinsing I was fine with it.

I found this recipe on a blog, can't remember where, and wanted to share it with everyone.  They are awesome!


Blueberry Muffins


1 cup milk ( I used Almond Milk)

1 tablespoon vinegar

1 1/2 cups brown rice flour

3/4 cup sweet rice flour

1/2 cup tapioca flour

1 teaspoon xanthan gum

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

1/3 cup raw honey

2 teaspoons vanilla

2 eggs ( I used egg beaters) 

1/4 cup olive oil

1 cup blueberries ( I used 2 cups I love blueberries)


Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Mix milk and vinegar and let sit for 10 minutes.

Combine all dry ingredients.

In separate bowl mix all wet ingredients together and add to dry ingredients mix till smooth.  Fold in blueberries.  Spoon into paper lined muffin tin.  Recipe said makes 12 muffins but I got 16 muffins and I filled liners to the top.  Bake 15-20 minutes.  (Mine were done in 15 minutes)  I also sprinkled sugar on top before baking.  These turned out wonderful and are very delicious.

#875072 Am I Still Healing Or Is It Cc

Posted by on 17 June 2013 - 12:08 PM

niese....1 month is not nearly enough time to see resolution of symptoms, plus you have the added problem of Microscopic Colitis.  This occurs often with Celiac Disease.  The hallmark of MC is diarrhea and it takes a long time for this to resolve sometimes.  I know people with MC and they told me it took months of using an anti-diarrheal to see results.  Your whole intestinal tract is inflammed, in your case, and that is going to make recovery slower.


I would not cut out other gluten-free grains for now because they provide nutrients (if done correctly) and you do not know if you need to. When first diagnosed, go gluten-free and maybe dairy free at first.  If you cut out too much, it will make it harder to pinpoint the culprit or if it is just lots of inflammation.  If your weight is a problem (low) from all that diarrhea, then I would eat some grains to keep weight on.  Having both of these issues may make for a longer recovery so you may have to be more patient.  Do they have you on an anti-diarrheal?  You should be taking one because when you have MC, your body cannot pull water from your waste as your large intestine is too inflammed and the diarrhea will continue.  I am so sorry you are feeling poorly but it will get better, I promise.  It sounds like you are trying hard to not cc yourself and your system sounds good so I really think it's a question of time with recovery.

Thank you for the info, I figured it was prob still the healing process.  Since I have a double whammy large and small intestine issues ur right I just need ride this out.  I can say yesterday was the first time in 2 months I was pain free, today different story but nothing I can't handle.  As far as the diarrhea its now just very loose BM down to 2-4 times day verses 15-20 times of watery diarrhea so looks like I am headed in the right direction.  I have started to notice alot of my symptoms are getting less.

#874844 Do I Need More Test?

Posted by on 16 June 2013 - 05:48 AM

I was diagnose with Celiac through a biopsy about month ago.  My dr then ordered blood work the script said Celiac Panel.  I get the results from that next week when I see him.   I am requesting  he check if I have any vitamin and mineral deficiencies and I want a food allergy test.  What else should I request?
