My favorite thing is that these gluten-free banana muffins are ready in less than 30 mins and take just 1 bowl to prepare.

The recipe is extremely simple and requires just 7 simple ingredients that you probably have in your kitchen already, such as: ripe bananas, cocoa powder, eggs, rice flour, honey and healthful extra-virgin olive oil.

Making these gluten-free banana muffins couldn’t be easier. All you have to do is mix all your ingredients, either in a food processor or a stand-mixer (I use this super efficient mixer {affiliate}). Alternatively, just place all ingredients in a large bowl and mix until combined.

These gluten-free banana muffins taste as good as they look, and make the perfect little treat to enjoy anytime of the day. I love to have mine in the morning with a nice cup of tea, and I can’t help drizzling a little honey over the top. Trust me, it’s simply divine.

These gluten-free banana muffins are SO indulgent, fluffy and have the perfect sweetness balance.  I make them all year round.  Even in the summer months, they are great for picnics or for snacking around on a day at the beach.
