Serves: 15
Ingredients
  • 1 cup sorghum flour
  • 1/2 cup gluten-free oat flour
  • 1/4 cup tapioca starch
  • 1 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup sour cream (or plain yogurt)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup ripe bananas, mashed (approximately 2 medium bananas)
  • 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease your muffin tin. Set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the sorghum flour, oat flour, tapioca starch, xanthan gum, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, vegetable oil, sour cream, vanilla extract and mashed bananas. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, and stir just to combine. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  4. Spoon batter into prepared muffin tin. Bake in preheated oven for 20-22 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Let stand in baking pan for 5 minutes before removing to wire rack. Cool completely before storing in an air-tight container.
Notes
To change things up a bit, you can add either a 1/2 tsp of ground cinnamon or ground espresso powder to the batter. Adding a 1/2 cup of chopped pecans or walnuts is another great option.
