Banana Muffins

Banana muffins are a favorite with many children in particular, but enjoyed equally by adults. Good for school lunch boxes! This recipe involves rice flour instead of plain white flour. You will find rice flour available cheaply at Asian grocery stores or those “bulk food bins” at your local supermarket for only a few dollars a kilogram. Once aupon a time only health-food shops used to stock rice flour and charge whatever they felt was right, but due to the demand and popularity, rice flour is now available in many different outlets. You can get white or brown rice flour, go for brown rice flour where you can. Enjoy.
