Have you gotten into the sourdough craze this year?

This spring I had been seeing all these amazing sourdough loaves all over instagram and was feeling jealous of all that GLUTEN. I never thought that I would be able to join the sourdough game and learn how to make my own gluten-free loaves.

Well I did. I stumbled upon the IG page Sourdough Schoolhouse and saw that they had a gluten-free sourdough course. I was in! It also happened to be around my birthday so I asked hubby to buy me the course.

Thanks to Marissa and Shannon I have learned to make my own gluten-free starter as well as sourdough loaves and bagels. What I also learned was how using sourdough discard in my baking was a GAME CHANGER!

What do I mean? First- adding sourdough discard makes gluten-free baking more moist, adds more air to the baking. Second- it makes gluten-free baking last longer on the counter. Muffins will stay moist for 5 days, no more dry muffins overnight.

These banana muffins were my first baking experiment with sourdough discard. My biggest surprise was that by adding sourdough discard these muffins will stay soft for at least 5 days-no more muffins getting hard right away.

I love coming up with new recipes and I really hope you will try this banana muffin recipe soon.
