Grain Free Banana Muffins

Grain Free Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

You read that right. Grain Free Banana Muffins…right here!

A little over two years ago I began transitioning to a gluten free/grain free lifestyle. It has been a long road, but I have finally gained the knowledge to become more proficient at grain free baking and cooking and I am grateful!

When I first discovered that my body didn’t like refined sugar (shocker!) and grains, and dairy, I was super discouraged. I knew how to cook well, but many of my recipes were dependent on these ingredients. I knew how to make those work…how to make light and fluffy baked goods, yummy traditional Mexican food, traditional comfort food that my family and friends enjoyed. Now what would I do?

With the help of those who have gone before me, I have finally become more confident with the new ingredients that my body thrives on. It sounds like I need to leave a lot out of my diet on a regular basis, and while that is true, there are so many things left that I can enjoy. I just needed to learn how to work with them.

In the past almond or coconut flour was a mystery to me. Arrowroot…no way! Cashew milk…not in my vocabulary…you get it. It was all foreign. Fast forward to today, and I’m baking Grain Free Banana Muffins that rival any traditional baked goods. It has been a long road, but I am finally learning.

Here is what you do:
