Gluten Free Banana Nut Muffin Recipe

Gluten Free Banana Nut Muffins
Gluten free recipes very often do not taste very good.  Let's be honest.  Many recipes are absolutely horrible.  This one, however, is so good that everyone likes them.  And, it only makes 8 muffins.  Of course, you could double the recipe if you wanted to make more!  Hope you enjoy this recipe.

1 large very ripe banana, mashed
3/8 cup sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/8 cup oil (I used canola)
5/8 cup rice flour (I used organic white)
2 TBS chopped walnuts + 1 TBS for garnish
3/8 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp salt
1/8 tsp xanthan gum (optional)

1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare 8 muffin cups with liners or spray with PAM.
2.In a medium bowl, combine the banana, sugar, vanilla, egg and oil until very well mixed.
3.In another medium bowl, combine all dry ingredients, including 2 TBS nuts.
4.Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients until all is well incorporated.
5.Scoop evenly into 8 muffin cups and sprinkle tops with reserved nuts.
6.Bake at 350 for approximately 30 minutes.
7.Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan.
