Reyes White Delight Banana Coconut Muffins

By Beth Heiserman

Growing up, my grandma always made the best banana bread. I still have her recipe on an index card. This is my version that is gluten free.

I also remember in 2003, going to Maui. We did the trip to Hana. On the way, we stopped at one of the many fruit/banana stands. They had fresh banana bread made with fresh coconut water and flour. My friend Joel had gone on an excursion the next day and he across a lady that kept saying she had the best banana bread. I did go visit her before I left. It was delicious. It was light and fluffy. I tried to make sure this version is very light and fluffy. Sometimes you might find gluten free recipes that are very dense kind of like eating a cardboard brick. You will be surprised that this might be the best version you will ever have.

I will be serving these muffins at the Reyes Winery Hike June 22, 2013.
