Gluten free honey banana and poppy seed muffins

Written by , Posted in Breakfast, Snacks, Sweet Treats

Winter is nearing its end… thank goodness. I am sick of being sick, and seriously over the snowman/marshmallow/muffin look. Winter sucks. Big time. In honour of the dying winter making way for, what I hope is, a fantastic summer… I thought I would post the recipe for deliciously sweet and sticky muffins. Honey, almonds and bananas for me are kind of winter-y flavours, not sure how everyone else feels but there is something about them individually and in combination that just feels warm and homey, the perfect flavour for winter.

Comfort food. I won’t lie I couldn’t eat more than one or two of these, they are super sweet. But I am sure the sweeter-toothed people out there will appreciate the taste? I hope?

So here’s the recipe:

1.5 cups gluten free self raising flour
1 cup brown sugar
pinch salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup melted butter
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup milk
2 eggs
2 tbs poppy seeds
sliced almonds for the top

*Preheat the oven to 180*

Mix all the dry ingredients together.
Whisk your eggs together with the butter, milk, honey.
Mix into the dry ingredients.
Stir in the poppy seeds.
Spoon the batter into a lined muffin pan – 2/3 of the way full.
Bake for 25 minutes.
Take out and sprinkle with almonds then leave to cool.

Hope you enjoy. For those who aren’t gluten-free, substitute the self raising gluten-free flour with normal self raising flour.

Also, look out over the weekend for my special “Whisking It @ Oppikoppi” post ^_^ it’s a fun one and for everyone who likes camping there will be goooood tips for cooking some delicious stuff over a fire in the bush!

Till next time internet friends.
