Raise your hand if you have a HUGE sweet tooth! I know I do! I also have a sweet spot (no pun intended) for all things breads and pastries. Banana bread being one of my guilty pleasures. So I decided to get baking and I came up with an allergy friendly (AND healthy) banana bread recipe! These banana bread muffins are dairy free, gluten free, and refined sugar free! And they still taste just as good as the real thing but you don’t have to feel guilty for eating more than one 😉

In a separate bowl, combine the baking powder, baking soda, gluten free flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and sugar. Mix.

Once both the wet and dry ingredients are thoroughly mixed, combine the two and continue to mix all the way through.

Bake in the oven for 50-55 minutes.
*PRO TIP*: if you want 12 large muffins fill the cupcake liners to the very top (this is what I do), for smaller muffins, fill about half way (should make 24).
