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

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.

I made these muffins today and they were really good. This was the first homemade gluten free thing I have baked. i used pumpkin and added a cup of mini choc chips (just in case something needed to be masked). I didn't have foil liners. I made12 muffins with paper liners in a muffin pan and 9 mini muffins (no liners). My friend couldn't even tell they were gluten free.

I substituted 1 cup of buckwheat flour, golden syrup for maple, soy milk for water; omitted xanthum and buttermilk powder; only used half cup brown sugar...
they are remarkably light and yummy! thanks, printing this one (with my changes!)

I made these muffins for a very picky 5 year old boy. He LOVES them! I actually have to limit the number of his daily muffins...never had to do that before.

They tasted REALLY gooey and sticky. I had to cook them for about 25 min. When I took them out of the oven, they sank. Majorly. However, the flavor was REALLY good! Anyone have any suggestions?

Made these for a co-worker who eats gluten free...she highly rated them, said she wouldn't have known they were gluten free if I hadn't told her. I didn't use the water and buttermilk powder, subbed milk for those, and added 1 tsp. of baking powder for extra leavening, and reduced the brown sugar by 1/2 as per another reviewer. Made the pumpkin version, and added dried cranberries for a little something extra.

Best...ever. Instead of buttermilk powder I used a cup of apple sauce and slightly increased the flour. They were remarkable.
