gluten free dairy free banana bran muffins recipe

I found an old binder of mine the other day and in it was a collection of recipes from my pre-celiac days.

Recipes I used to make all the time for my family.

After being gluten free now for a number of years and feeling pretty confident in my gluten free baking I thought I would take out a couple of the recipes and see if I could make them gluten free and still taste as good as ever.

One of the recipes was a banana muffin recipe that had All-Bran in it.

All-Bran is definitely NOT gluten free and bran in itself is not. However now we can find rice bran in the health food stores and so I decided I would give this recipe a switch-up.
I am so very pleased that I did and will definitely be making these muffins again.

The original recipe was written on a piece of paper with no name on it so I hope the original writer will be happy with the changes I made to it.
