Gluten-Free Banana Walnut Muffins Recipe
“I’ve been cooking gluten-free since 2003, when my husband was diagnosed with celiac disease. Over the years, I’ve managed to perfect some recipes so that when family and friends join us, they can’t tell they’re eating gluten-free. This is one of those recipes…and excellent!” —Trish Pannell, College Station, Texas
