Great recipe! I am new to eating gluten free food and I really don't like banana so I tried replacing the banana with 100g of frozen black cherries and it worked so well! Thank you!

Great recipe, thanks you. I didn't have enough castor sugar so used light brown muscovado sugar instead - I also changed the method slightly as I can't cream butter and sugar due to an injury - melt the butter and sugar in a pan, take off the heat and add the mashed banana, beaten eggs and dry ingredients, add milk last - mis all together and fill the muffin cases 2/3 full - absolutely delicious muffins and very little effort or washing up - I will ditch all other banana muffin recipes now :-)

Made these and they are so scrumptious, light, airey and soft, great as my granddaughter is only 15 months old and a coeliac.

Brilliant recipe, I adapted to use grated apple and mixed fruit instead of banana and chocolate and they were delicious. Lovely moist yet light texture.

Thank you so much for sharing this excellent recipe, it works a treat! I use raisins instead of chocolate chunks too and the result is still perfect. Nobody eating these could believe they are gluten free.
