Gluten Free Banana Muffins & Potluck Etiquette
1/2 c. chopped walnuts
1/2 c. brown sugar, loosely packed
1/2 c. chopped banana chips
At the last potluck I attended, I was horrified that someone dropped brownie crumbs all over my clearly labeled plate of gluten free cut out, frosted cookies. With one careless action all my hard work went down the drain - the cookies were no longer GF. I wanted to sit down and cry! Instead, I removed the GF label and bit my tongue (hard). There was no undoing it - so why make a fuss?
So THIS time I got smart! I put each muffin in a ziplock sandwich bag, labeled Gluten Free Banana Nut. Not only did the few of us that are GF get to enjoy the muffins (sans cross contamination), but a number of people who do NOT have celiac disease tried them and liked them. Success! :)
