Banana Macadamia Muffins with Chocolate Chips
1 and 1/3 cups sorghum flour
2/3 cup arrowroot starch
1 teaspoon xanthan gum
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup canola oil
2/3 cup orange juice
2 ripe bananas, mashed
1 cup chopped macadamia nuts
1/3-2/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 12-cup muffin tin.
In a large bowl, whisk together sorghum flour, arrowroot starch, xanthan gum, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Add brown sugar. Then, using a fork, mix in oil and orange juice, just to moisten. Add mashed bananas. Fold in nuts and chocolate chips.
Spoon batter into muffin tins; batter will not rise enough to worry about the tin being full.
Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes (convection oven: bake at 325 degrees for 18-20 minutes), until a toothpick comes out clean. Yield: 12 muffins. Freezes well.
