How should I store my banana muffins?
These gluten free banana muffins are best stored in an air tight container. You can leave them on your counter for up to 3 days and then it's best to move them to the refrigerator to keep them fresh.
These muffins also freeze really well. I like to freeze them in individual bags so I have something quick to put in lunches or to take out for breakfast or a snack.

How do I make gluten free banana muffins from scratch?
These muffins are so easy to make!
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Mix bananas, vanilla and eggs together. Add melted coconut oil, sugars and honey. Mix until blended.
In a separate bowl mix together baking powder, salt, cinnamon, almond flour, gluten free flour and oats. Add almond milk to batter and then add this dry mixture to batter ½ cup at a time mixing until the dry mixture is just blended in. Mix until ingredients are just blended together. Do not over mix or the dough gets tough and doesn't rise as well.
Place batter into a 12 muffin pan. The batter will fill all the way to the top of your liners and the tops will rise quite a bit. If you wanted smaller muffins you could make 24 instead. But, let's be honest, the muffin tops are delicious and who wants to miss out on those.
Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes.
Let cool and then store in the refrigerator for up to five days.

I have made more then enough muffins as a gf momma, but these are hands down the best I've ever made! So fluffy, moist, flavorful and easy to make! I can't wait to try the white cake recipe!!
Thank you so much for this sweet comment Amanda! I'm so glad you liked the banana muffins. I hope you like the cake too. I've made the cake with many types of frostings and we always love it. xo, Elaine

Are we able to use 2.5 cups of gluten free for rather than using almond flour?
Yes, that should work fine. The muffins may rise more since the almond flour is heavier, so you might want to make 15 or 16 muffins with the batter.
could I use oat flour as the gluten free flour? keeping the rest the same.
Hi Lolita. In my experience using one type of flour such as oat flour instead of a mixed gluten free flour will make the recipe much more dense and will change the texture of the recipe. Using only oat flour will make this muffins less light and fluffy. ~Elaine
ok thanks, I will try mixing a gf Flour blend with some oat flour, perhaps 50/50- Lolita
