Preparation

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°F. In a mixing bowl, whisk together gluten-free flour blend, baking powder, baking soda, xanthan gum, salt, and cinnamon for 20 seconds, set aside.

In a separate large mixing bowl, using an electric hand mixer set on medium speed (or in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with paddle attachment), whip together butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar until creamy and fluffy. Mix in eggs on a time, mixing until combined after each addition.

Working in three separate batches, beginning and ending with flour mixture, add 1/3 of the flour mixture alternating with 1/2 of the mashed bananas and mixing until well blended after each addition. Divide batter among 12 paper lined muffin cups, filling each to the top (about 1/3 cup in each), then bake in preheated oven 17 to 20 minutes, until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean (or with a few moist crumbs. If you feel they are browning too much near the end you can tent the tops with a sheet of foil).

Cool in muffin tin several minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
