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? Adding sourdough discard makes gluten-free baking more moist and 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 are simple gluten-free muffins to make that you can enjoy for breakfast or a snack. I added chopped pecans to the batter but you could easily swap for walnuts, almonds or cashews. The gluten-free sourdough banana muffins are slightly sweet, filled with warm spices and with just a hint of tang from the sourdough discard. These healthy gluten-free sourdough banana muffins are the perfect way to use up the sourdough discard.
