Who loves banana muffins? I have been trying to eat gluten free as much as possible and it seems to be helping my stomach. Buying gluten free is a bit expensive so I have been trying to find easy recipes especially in the sweets department. I decided to try a gluten free banana muffin recipe using my same old recipe but substituting the regular flour for gluten free flour. I am not a die hard gluten free eater. It’s really hard. I try though about 80% of the time. I am still messing up recipes though, thinking it’s all gluten free and then I find out there was some kind of gluten hidden in one of the ingredients. Geeeesh, they make it so hard to read those labels!

I used a 1/2 cup of gluten free oats in my banana muffin recipe which gave them an extra little yummy flavor. I love oats in everything! I made these before Valentine’s Day and used a cute little heart muffin tin for a few. Aren’t they cute? They are a perfect gluten free snack or even better, delicious for breakfast.
