We made some yummy banana muffins last week and today, we are sharing this gluten free and no sugar added recipe with you. My dad, grandfather and husband are all diabetic so when we can, we try to bake as healthy as possible. There are a few muffins with chocolate chips for those of us who need to satisfy our sweet tooth, me included.
Cooking without sugar poses many challenges, one being that sucralose upsets my stomach so I am always trying to find sugar substitutes with minimal artificial sweetener. Because of the diabetics in my family, cooking and baking with minimal sugar is tough. Some of you also know that I try to eat gluten free when possible as my stomach is a bit sensitive. I found this recipe online and instead of using honey, I used sugar free maple syrup. Sugar free maple syrup does have artificial flavoring (sorbitol) but in small doses, my stomach can handle it.

Greek yogurt is a great substitute for sour cream which I have used in previous banana bread recipes. Greek yogurt is so much healthier and it keeps the muffins nice and moist. These gluten free no sugar added banana muffins only lasted 4 hours. They were a hit! Be sure to check out our kitchen for more delicious baked treats and meal ideas.
