Gluten Free Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins - a delicious banana muffin, super kid-friendly with no gluten or refined sugar! | tastythin.com

These Gluten Free Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins are a great option for a busy morning breakfast or quick snack!  This is also a great recipe to try if you’re just starting to experiment with gluten free baking.  Sweet and simple!

We love muffins in this house, especially these Healthy Banana Muffins, so I decided to try a GF version.  While we are not an exclusively “gluten free” family, I like to find ways to eliminate processed ingredients whenever possible.  If you’re looking to limit gluten in your family’s diet, this is a great way to ease into unchartered territory – skip new or complicated recipes and instead take a tried and true simple recipe that is already a hit, and substitute all purpose gluten free flour for the regular flour.  So simple and the perfect way to test your family’s reactions to the switch (mine didn’t even notice!!)

What I love most about this recipe is that there is no added sugar.  The bananas provide plenty of sweetness!  For more fun, play around with the add-ins.  Walnuts, pecans, blueberries, or raisins would be some great options!
