Servings 12


  • 4 ripe bananas
  • 1/3 cup (~60g) sugar
  • 1 stick (110g) butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1.5 cups gluten free flour
  • 1/4 cup (~30g) milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder


  • Heat oven to 175C/350F and grease muffin tray (makes 12).
  • Mash bananas and set aside.
  • Melt butter.
  • Mix melted butter, sugar and vanilla together well.
  • Add in the eggs and mashed banana and stir together.
  • Add all the remaining ingredients; gf flour, baking soda, baking powder and milk until combined.
  • Pour the muffin batter into the greased (or lined) muffin tin.
  • Bake for 25 minutes, until muffins are set, springy to the touch and lightly golden.


  • The butter can be substituted for coconut oil.
  • The more ripe the bananas are (a little icky even) the better!
  • If using the mini-muffin tins, the mixture will make approximately 24 mini muffins, but be sure to reduce baking time to allow for this.
  • The sugar is fairly low in this recipe, if it's not sweet enough, you could use 1/2 cup instead or add some maple syrup.
  • A couple of chocolate chips added to the top of the muffins can help to entice picky eaters!
