Fudgy Banana Cupcakes (*Gluten Free!)


Warning: You cannot eat one. I dare you to stop at two.

If you mixed cupcakes, brownies, and bananas together, and magically made them gluten free, this is what you’d get.

Sometimes I really want something sweet to go with my afternoon coffee. But, even though I do love sugar, I really don’t need the extra gluten or oils. HOWEVER… today’s recipe is quite possibly the easiest, and quickest way to “gluten free super fudgy, no-oil-added” cupcakes. Seriously!

You’ll only need 3 ingredients, and you’ll have these little chocolatey goodies in your  hand, in less than 30 minutes!


  • Arrowhead Mills Gluten Free Chocolate Cake Mix
  • 4 small bananas
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350°.  Line 16 muffin tins with 2 cupcake liners each. In a large bowl, using a stick blender, mash bananas till liquefied.  Add dry cake mix and vanilla. Stir well with a rubber spatula till fully mixed. Spoon mixture equally into liners.  Bake 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a cake comes out clean. Immediately remove from muffin tin and allow to cool on counter.

Now for the hard part: only eat one. I know! It’s pretty much impossible.

There’s a lot you can do with these little beauties, once they’re baked: 

  • Top them with whipped cream
  • Drizzle real maple syrup over them & add pecans
  • Split it in the middle and make a sliced-strawberry sandwich
  • Drizzle warmed peanut butter over the top


The possibilities are endless!

My thoughts, exactly.
