GFCF Banana Spice Muffins

I made muffins this weekend instead of bars or cookies.

Here they are coming out of the oven

And here's a closer look

GFCF Banana Spice Muffins

2 cups GF Flour (I used Bob’s Red Mill GF Mix)
1 tablespoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon ground ginger
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon grated nutmeg
½ cup cf margarine (I used Crystal Farms Dairy Free)
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 cup milk substitute (I used Vance’s Dari Free)
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 very ripe bananas, mashed but still chunky

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Coat muffin pans with non stick spray or use paper liners.
Thoroughly mix flour, baking powder, salt, ginger, cinnamon, and nutmeg in medium bowl.
Cream margarine and sugar in large bowl with electric mixer for 3 minutes or until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time, then milk substitute and then vanilla. On low speed blend in dry ingredients and bananas just until combined; do not over mix.
Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups, dividing evenly.

I was going for smaller child size muffins and I baked them 20 minutes and it made 24. If you want large muffins with tall tops, put into 12 muffin cups and cook 25 to 30 minutes. Muffins will be done with toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
