I'm not a fan of banana in anything baked but needed to use up some over-ripe ones.....and WOW these are amazing! Can't believe how light and fluffy they came out! I've made them twice now and they both came out amazingly light. First time I followed the recipe exactly (but used vegan milk and marg.), second time I used 1.5 bananas, and didn't have any margarine so used half a cup of olive oil instead. Also, used Doves Farm GF Bread flour instead of plain (omitting the bicarb.) Oh, and threw some more choc chips on the top before baking. Keeping this one for sure!

One of the best gluten free muffin recipes I've made. Foolproof and easy to switch to nuts instead of chocolate. Easy to make vegan (switch out the butter for spread). In fact these are better than a lot of the gluten muffins I've had!

Really yummy and easy to make. I used 2 bananas instead of one, so the muffins took a bit longer to bake, around 25 mins.

I made these first last week by hand but found it difficult due to disabilities, so they came out flat, but very nice to eat. Today I made them with Doves self raising flour and my new mixer and two bananas, (yes two, crazy I know) and they have risen to perfection, just fantastic, my husband is going to eat them all, I just Know it.

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.
