Gluten Free Choc Banana Muffins

You need to try these fluffy and moist gluten free muffins. They have the perfect amount of sweetness from bananas and are also freezer-friendly and great for breakfast or snacks! You won’t believe how soft and fluffy they are – especially since they are gluten free. I’m reminded of the ad; “I can’t believe it’s not butter!”
