Gluten-free and vegan banana muffins
If you want to make this recipe gluten-free, simply substitute the all-purpose flour with rice flour.
To make this recipe vegan, use 3 bananas instead of 2, substitute honey with maple syrup, and skip the eggs. Or give these vegan chocolate muffins a try, and add 1 banana for extra flavour.
