Gluten-Free Banana Muffins

I stumbled upon this gorgeous muffin recipe while surfing foodgawker the other day.  The photo lured me in and once I saw the ingredients list I was hooked.

Now, as is the norm for me, I switched things up a bit - adding some extra spices and going with my all-time fave Agave Nectar as sweetener.

These muffins are light, moist and taste just like banana bread.  Consider tossing in some mini dark chocolate chips or chopped walnuts too. They would make great additions to this yummy baked treat.

The ingredients are fantastic. No artificial flavorings or an assortment of gluten-free flours needed. Bananas are obviously one of the main players but so is almond flour.  You will even get to skip the xantham or guar gum which we usually find in GF baked goods.

As far as almond flour goes, and you can either make it yourself or buy store bought.  I always buy JK Gourmet brand because I like its texture.

So if you are ready to make one sweet, delish banana bread muffin then let's go !
