All Natural + Gluten Free Banana Bread Muffins

There once was a banana.

He was very sad.

He was too old and nobody loved him anymore.

Resigning himself to a black, mushy end, he was inconsolable.

But then, something happened! For a fleeting moment he thought he would be rescued.

And then he realized that he was in for the ultimate demise.

BANANA BREAD.

In muffin form. 🙂

I followed NO recipe for these babies! I literally threw ingredients (“I think these go in muffins?”) into a bowl, spooned them in a muffin tin and said a prayer.

Turns out, that prayer was unneeded! They were a huge success!

Minus the frying pan that I forgot to take out of the oven while it was preheating…but don’t worry, there was no fire. 😉

These have NO unhealthy, artificial ANYTHING. They are full of natural, wholesome ingredients, and if I may say so myself are pretty darn delicious.

I’m already planning my breakfasts around these with copious amounts of peanut butter.

This recipe is a small batch, yielding only four, but the double/triple/quadruple as you see fit.
