Serves: 12
  • 3 Over Ripe Bananas, mashed
  • ¼ Cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Teaspoon Caramel Extract (if you have it)
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
  • ¼ Teaspoon Salt
  • 1¼ Cup Gluten Free Flour Blend
  • ½ Cup Caramel Baking Pieces
  • ½ Cup Pecans
  1. Preheat the oven to 350* and prep your cupcake pan by placing a cupcake liner in each hole or spray your cupcake pan with non-stick spray if not using cupcake liners (then set aside to use later). Once the oven is preheated place the pecans on a baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes or until fragrant.
  2. In a mixing bowl add the bananas, brown sugar and vanilla; using a whisk break up the banana's until they are mostly smooth.
  3. Next add the baking soda, baking powder, salt and GF flour blend; whisk together until evenly combined and smooth. You might have a few lumps from the banana.
  4. Remove the nuts from the oven and chop them; then add the pecans and the caramel baking pieces to the batter.
  5. Pour the batter into each of the cupcake liners so that they are about ⅔ of the way full. Bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through when inserting a toothpick. These are so good they don't even need butter. I hope you enjoy these Caramel Pecan Banana Muffins!
