Delicious Wholesome Banana muffins.

I'm very excited to announce that Mishaps and Mayhem of a Gluten Free Life, will be running our first compeitition, commencing this Friday! I have had the pleasure of reviewing 'Good & Easy Eats' by Kim Wilson from . On Friday I will be revealing more of my thoughts on this wonderful and inspiring e book.

Until Friday, this is a preview of one of the delicious and healthy muffins. Everyone who has tried them, has commented on our nice they are and you can actually taste how wholesome they are, not filled with sugar. For Australians, some of the products aren't as easy to buy, I found the apple cider vinegar, brown rice flour, and Flaxmeal from a great health food shop.

Combine ingredients in left column (except for walnuts if including). In a separate bowl combine ingredients in right column. Lightly mix the two together and then fold in walnuts. Scoop into oiled muffin cups. Bake at 180-200 degrees celiscus for about 20 minuts. Makes about one dozen muffins * maple syrup (I used this, or agave (I'm unsure if this can be found in Australia Note: The original recipe called for 1 cup of sorghum flour, unfortunately in Australia, I have not been able to purchase this flour, the arrowroot flour and gluten free cornflour is my subsitiute, and it worked well and tasted delicious!
