Cooks Note

Experimenting with gluten-free recipes is my new mantra.I like to say I'm still fairly new to this,and of late have been trying to widen my knowledge of Gluten free cooking. While I'm not really sure that I'm Gluten Intolerant, I just prefer it and feel so much better not eating it.

I actually got around to making these Gluten free banana nut muffins for a Teen cooking workshop recently. I was of course overjoyed to find this lovely Plain Flour Blend (gluten-free) in the Organic section of Geant supermarket.The flour is a blend of Rice,Potato,tapioca,maize and Buckwheat and worked really well for this muffin recipe.The brand used is Dove Farms.

There's just one word to describe these muffins: Simple!!!
