<Miwa’s tips> ※Watch more on YouTube!

1. Make sure to use VERY ripe bananas.

2. It’s important to wait until the muffins reach room temperature otherwise they will be too soft due to the rice flour.

3. You can add in frozen berries.

4. Instead of greasing a muffin tin, you can use oven-safe muffin cups (silicone).

5. If the muffins aren't sweet enough, feel free to add in some sugar or enjoy with some maple syrup.

<Storage time>

Store them in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. Freeze them for up to 3 weeks.
