Currently self isolating at home in Scotland & needed a recipe to use up over ripened bananas. I only had gf self raising flour in so substituted it for the plain flour & baking flour and they turned out great. A big hit with my two coeliac kids and the non coeliac one too! Very tasty, thank you Doves Farm.

These came out super gritty and were really tasteless.

I was looking for a muffin recipe to use some over ripe bananas and stumbled across this. I didn't use the Dove Farm products as I live in France and its difficult to get these over here, but I just substituted in alternative GF items and for a first attempt, they were grand. Nice and moist, and they actually held their shape unlike a lot of gf baking which just dissolves into sand! Will definitely make these again.

This is a great recipe for banana muffins. I made them without the chocolate chips. They are so light and very easy to make. Highly recommended. Thank you Doves Farm.

These are really tasty & a good consistency. I do wonder whether less baking powder might improve the taste even more (but maybe not the rise?!) as there was a slight aftertaste. I will make them again and try less baking powder.

Dear Kate, thanks so much for your lovely review and we are so pleased to hear you love these muffins. Happy Baking! Best wishes, Doves Farm.
