    Directions:
    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

    Directions:
    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.

    I modified this recipe & my husband said they are the best muffins he's had! Reduce brown sugar to 1/2 cup; substitute mashed, cooked sweet potatoes for 2 of the bananas; added 1/2 cup broken pecans

    Best gluten-free muffins I have made so far. I made banana and added 1 cup toasted chopped walnuts and 1/4 C flax seed. Very, very moist. They freeze well if you don't eat them quickly. Family loves them.

    Very good, I used pumpkin from a can. The cooking time is way off mine took about 20-25 minutes. Would defiantly make these again.

    This is really an awesome gluten free muffin! I made the pumpkin muffin version. To make the flour, I combined 1 1/4 cups of sorghum flour, 1/2 cup sweet rice flour, and 1/4 cup millet flour. I would highly recommend this.
