Gluten Free Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins {Recipe}

Although this is not the healthiest recipe as far as calories are concerned, it is very delicious and no one will ever know it is gluten free. In my Christmas stocking I received a mix for muffins. Although it was delicious, it was also pretty spendy. I decided to take a look at some of my old gluten containing go to recipes and utilize them to create a new but gluten free version.

I'm pretty sure I have mastered this one. These were served along with fresh fruit for breakfast on Sunday morning. They are sooooo good! Glad I had extras.

Gluten Free Banana Chocolate Chip Muffin Recipe
Yields 20 - 24 muffins (Depending on how full you fill them.)


1 Stick Butter (Room Temperature)
3/4 Cup Sugar
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
3 Ripe Bananas 
2 eggs (room temperature)
1/2 Cup Whole Milk
2 tsp Vanilla Extract
2 1/2 Cups Gluten Free All Purpose Flour
1 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Xanthum Gum
1 Cup Chocolate Chips (I prefer Semi-Sweet)



In a large bowl, cream softened butter with both white and brown sugar until fully combined. Mash bananas with a fork in a separate bowl. Add bananas, eggs, milk and vanilla extract. In a separate bowl combine gluten free flour, baking soda, salt and xanthum gum. Add dry mixture to wet mixture. 


Fully combine but do not over mix. Add chocolate chips (I sometimes always add extra). Fill paper lined muffin cups. I also sprinkle with a little raw sugar just to make them pretty. Bake in a 350° oven for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. 



  1. My children would love these and I just got a new muffin pan to review so I may have to try them. Thanks for the share.

  2. Ahh this looks delicious! I know they would be gone before I removed them from the oven, and that is so possible in this house!

  3. That looks so yummy! I'm not a Gluten free eater, but I might have to give these a try. Thanks!

  4. These look and sound really tempting-but I am a diabetic and even though it is gluten free--it is filled with carbs!!

  5. Oh YUM!!! I never thought to add chocolate chips to banana muffins. I'm going to try this!

  6. Delicious!! I love making gluten-free muffins. The texture is often close to "real cake" so count me in!!!

  7. These sound (and look) amazing! I've never put chocolate chips in my banana muffins...but I totally should! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

  8. I LOVE gluten free recipes and I have several close friends whose children can not have any gluten so I will be passing this along to them right away. Thanks for the awesome recipe!

  9. I saw these were Gluten Free so I had to check it out. I think they sound good and I have some bananas ready for using!
