Buckwheat Banana Muffins – Gluten-Free

Buckwheat Banana Muffins to help fuel a healthy and happy start to a brand new year!

Our weekly shopping haul almost always includes around 2.5 kg of bananas. The boys love eating them first thing in the morning or, even better, frozen and blitzed in various versions of banana nice cream (recipe coming soon)!

If you have been following me for a while you will know I can’t go without my green goodness smoothie, which is naturally sweetened and made extra creamy with a frozen banana. And I am absolutely thrilled that our Good Eats family can now also store their meal prep frozen bananas in one of our brand new, earth-friendly, resealable silicone storage bags. Click here to find them in the shop! Yeah!

But, let’s get back to the recipe 🙂

There are rare occasions when we don’t work our way through our banana stash. Nobody is ever mad about it, because it simply means some kind of sweet banana bake will follow.  And this is then also how this glorious recipe was born.

*Top tip: If your bananas are already over ripe at the start of the week and you know you won’t be able to bake until the weekend, simply peel, add to a food grade silicone bag and freeze. Pop out of the bag into a glass bowl and thaw out before baking. These make for the BEST bakes!
