Jumbo Banana Muffins // Sweet Laurel

These are my all-time favorites, and for good reason – dense, rich, flavorful, they’re hearty but still sweet enough to be a treat. Also, it’s texture makes it very forgiving to first time grain-free bakers.  If you’re nervous about dipping your toe into the “gluten free” pool, this is the perfect recipe to ease the transition. These lovely muffins are perfect as is, but you could even add chocolate chips, nuts, or dried fruit to have some fun.
