Millet Banana Muffins


3 ripe (or overripe) bananas
1/4 cup orange juice
1/4 cup canola oil
3/4 cup sugar
2 Tbsp ground flaxseed
1 cup millet flour
1 cup white rice flour
1/2 tsp xanthan gum
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 350 °F.

Mash bananas in a medium mixing bowl. Add orange juice, canola oil, sugar and flaxseed.

In a separate bowl, combine millet flour, rice flour, xanthan gum, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Add flour mixture to banana mixture and stir until combined.

Spoon into paper lined muffin tins. Bake 25-30 minutes.

Makes one dozen.

These are crumbly without the xanthan gum and flaxseed.

Gluten: Gluten is a protein found in specific grains (wheat, spelt, kamut, barley, rye). Other grains are naturally gluten-free but may have cross-contact with gluten-containing grains. Look for certified gluten-free products if you need to avoid gluten. Find out more about wheat and gluten substitutions.

Corn Substitutions: Corn is a common ingredient in products. Starch, modified food starch, dextrin and maltodextrin can be from corn. Consult with your physician to find out which corn derivatives you need to avoid. Many corn-free options are available in the US. Find out more about corn substitutions.

This is my new favorite banana muffin! I love millet flour and these are quick and easy!

Can I use two cups of gluten free flour instead of the millet and white rice flour?

It's certainly worth a try. Since there is no starch called for in the recipe, using a mix may change the texture.

What can I use instead of xantham gum? I want to make these gmo free

Gee, you could try substituting flax seed meal. You could increase the amount of flax used. Or you could try omitting the xanthan gum.
