These tasty, moist and beautiful Gluten-Free Banana Cocoa Muffins are absolutely amazing for breakfast, brunch or dessert.
We were quite impressed by the gluten-free all-purpose flour and the way these muffins turned out. Yes, my family tried to eat gluten-free most of the time if we are not doing keto.
I am not saying that pizza or regular pasta never finds its way to our bellies but you know what I mean?! Gluten-free makes us feel better inside and out.
These tasty muffins are measured, tested and retested so you can make them without any issues. Seriously, you guys they are super easy.
So, if you have any ripe bananas that should be used just to make these yummy muffins. Also, I wrote in the notes alternative options.
No, you do not have to use gluten-free four or lactose-free milk, or nuts in that matter, just use what you have. All-purpose flour, regular sugar or whole milk and butter would do exactly the same purpose.
You can even shred some zucchini and carrots and use soaked raisins. Oh, possibilities are really endless when you start to play with recipes. Sometimes it works, and hey from time to time it just does not.
These are just wonderful with a cup of tea or coffee. I do not breakfast eater but these hit the spot every time I snack on it with my afternoon coffee.

Make sure BANANAS are ripe because they are so much better. Peel and mash with the back of the fork. Also, they keep muffins moist as well.
If you have any other substitute for an egg then our ar more than welcome to use it. I love adding eggs into my banana bread or muffins. Coconut oil, lactose-free milk because we use that milk.
I believe it is really important to measure ingredients for baking. So invest in a good scale. I have a cup scale and I am in love with it. I have similar, so I am linking it from my amazon shop.
Like I said in the recipe, you may use any type of nuts. I used almonds that I crushed in my blender. Walnuts are wonderful as well as pecans.
If you have nut allergies than skip it and maybe use dried fruit soaked in hot water or liqueur. However, it is not necessary. You can also add some chopped apples.
Yes, you can make 12 smaller or regular size muffins or perhaps a loaf although you will have to watch on how long you have to bake it. Probably lower temperature at 350F for 45 minutes.
The warm and tasty aroma while they are baking. Well, I have a feeling you guys going to love it.
I would suggest to let these cool completely, about 30 to 45 minutes eating. Okay, I know you want to eat them right away but you will just make them mushy so wait for the best results.
