Gluten-Free Banana Chocolate Muffins (#BacktoSchoolTreats)
I think muffins are the best breakfast, don’t you? It’s almost like a cupcake that’s ok to eat before noon! And these are even better because they’re free of gluten, grain, and dairy! It doesn’t get any better than gluten-free banana chocolate muffins, does it?

Want to know another reason I’m digging this new recipe creation? Because it’s a small batch recipe too! That’s right. This recipe makes only 6 muffins at a time! So if you’ve got a smaller family, or you’re a single person like me who can’t possibly get through a dozen muffins (because they’re oh so clean that they don’t last very long just sitting around), then this is the recipe for you!

We believe in flavor for all and opportunity for all. In the beginning, Rinaldo and Ezilda Torre visited family in Lucca, Italy.

A lot has happened since then, but our belief has remained the same: Flavor for All, Opportunity for All. It means that not only are the products we make inclusive and approachable, but so is our success. We believe everything starts with people, and the only way to truly succeed is to succeed together. Today, you can use more than 100 of our naturally flavored syrups, sauces and beverage bases in coffees, sodas, teas, smoothies, cocktails and more.
