Healthy Gluten Free Banana Nut Muffins

It’s Saturday!

Saturday’s are amazing, it is an opportunity for you to spend the day doing anything you desire. Sometimes it can be spent catching up on your favorite show, running errands, going to your workout class, catching up with friends over brunch, etc. There is just something about waking up on a Saturday morning…with no plans in store. Just pure presence, I love it.

Today, I woke up with a desire to dig through my pantry and cultivate a fluffy gluten free muffin recipe. The first thing I noticed was a browned bunch of bananas, so I put those to work. Rather than tossing them in the trash, I mashed those ripe bananas up and crafted a recipe that is clean and so delicious.

Fluffy Gluten Free Muffins

It’s breakfast time! These fluffy gluten free muffins are so simple to bake. The best part is you can add anything you want! Sometimes, I will batch cook muffins for the week ahead and add different toppings to each one, so it’s always a surprise! The ripened bananas sweeten these muffins up and offer the perfect consistency.

I love adding in pecans for a little crunch. You can never, ever go wrong with a few dark chocolate chips or even blueberries. Whatever you choose, have fun with it!
