Whenever my bananas are ripe, I like to make different dessert dishes. This one was my favorite so far. Gluten-Free Banana Walnut Muffin. My son had friends over, so I decided to make this one as an alternative to brownies. It was delicious, and they were all gone.
Note: since this is gluten-free, it will make only 12 cupcakes. You also may have a little more left. You can distribute the amount in the different cupcakes or discard it.
