Gluten Free Banana Muffins

Staying at home for the past 40+ days has really made me more conscious about the food I am eating. I eat whatever I want, but am trying to ensure that most of it is made at home. No dieting, just eating home cooked food. Snacks, mains, desserts – whatever I want 🙂 While the savoury part is easy, the desserts not so much.

But, that doesn’t mean I experiment less! I’ve made a lot of banana recipes, but wanted to try something healthier this time. So I went down the gluten free path. A really good call, if I may say so myself 🙂

But once I moved to Hyderabad, I was introduced to the marvelous world of filter coffee! South Indian filter coffee is something else! When made right, it is strong, delicious, fragrant and super comforting. These muffins try to take that feeling and translate it into dessert.
