Swedish Banana Choc Chip Muffins (Low FODMAPS)

This recipe is adapted from the Amelia blog. It makes 12-16 muffins, depending on how high you pile the dough (don't worry, it will stay together, and not goop over the sides). These are very tasty, and for all the banana, they don't taste super banana-ey. Most importantly, they don't taste like a gluten free treat.

Now I'm learning about flours, I'm becoming quite a 'crumb' snob. These muffins have good crumb. 

PREHEAT Oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.

GREASE / LINE 12 cup normal muffin pan.

This is what my drive to work looked like.

And this is what I came back to in the car park. It is worse than it looks. I parked by an open area of the car park, where all the knowing locals had avoided. Because during the day snow rushed in to the windscreen of my car, and then when it got dark, the whole clump froze like a big ice cube. It wouldn't have been so bad if I knew this, and hadn't tried to turn the ice-block-incased wipers on. Nothing a few minutes of the heater on high couldn't fix, but I learned my lesson: avoid parking in the spots with windows during a snow storm.

All in all, the snow storm yesterday made for a pretty fun day.
