Muffins seem to be a staple in the majority of diets now, everytime you enter a coffee shop muffins of all varieties are on display, and who can resist?
These banana muffins are very easy to make, and if you need more than 6 then the recipe doubles up perfectly.
I also occasionally like to spread a little nut butter on the top for a different taste sensation. If you've never tried bananas and nut butter together you'll be hooked when you do. I used to live on peanut butter and banana sandwiches when I was at college and pre-wheat allergy, I still enjoy them now using gluten free breads or bagels.
Preheat oven: 200°C, 400°F, Gas 6
- Mix together the rice, tapioca and potato flours, gelatine, xanthan gum, baking powder, sugar and lemon zest.
- Mix the apple puree with the egg, oil, milk and vanilla. Mix this into the dry ingredients so that you get a lumpy batter.
- Gently fold the banana into the mixture, then divide equally into the 6 muffin cases in a muffin tray. Bake for 25 minutes, they are cooked when a toothpick inserted in the centre of a muffin comes out clean, unless it comes out with banana on—then try somewhere else. Leave to cool on a baking tray.
