Reviews for Gluten-Free Banana Nut Muffins
"Fantastic gf banana muffins - I'm passing on this recipe to my mother it's so wonderful!"
"These are wonderful light and fluffy muffins with excellent flavor. I have had a lot of trouble with gluten free recipes and this one is a sure thing."
"What is xanthan gum??? What can you substitute instead. Also, what flours can you use instead of the three listed?????"
"These muffins were delicious and o so light! I used a cup and a half of GF mix instead of the 3 separate flours. And I also added a package of plain gelatin to the dry ingredients to help with holding everything together. I would definitely make these again. Thanks for the recipe!"
