Vegan Banana Pecan Muffins

Just because you choose not to eat gluten or animal products does not mean you can not enjoy delicious freshly baked muffins!  These banana pecan mini muffins, are gluten free thanks to the Bob’s Red Mill all purpose gluten free baking flour I used (which you can get at Fresh and Natural Foods), and vegan, because they are made without eggs but still light and fluffy. Don’t worry though you can not tell that they are not traditional muffins because they are just as delicious! These make the perfect Saturday morning treat!
