Chocolate Banana Gluten-Free Muffins

GLUTEN-FREE CHOCOLATE BANANA MUFFINS

 

I found this recipe when I had a few very ripe bananas I needed to use up.  I have since made these countless times and they are so good.  Here is the original recipe over at http://www.texanerin.com.  I have only altered the sweetener, the type of fat and salt content, otherwise it is a foolproof delicious muffin.  Anytime I can cut sweetener I do cause my motto is, “if you don’t need it, don’t eat it”.  However I don’t always adhere to my motto.

My daughter has offered to make and post some food videos on instagram, so you can check out her chocolate banana muffin video at my kleecreations instagram account.
