BananaNutMuffins_GlynnHouseNuts are strictly optional in this recipe, so if you’re allergic, don’t let the name stop you from trying it.  What you will need is a few ripe bananas (like the ones you didn’t get around to slicing up for your cereal and are now wondering what to do with) and some staples from your pantry. And espresso. Yes, bananas and coffee — two great tastes that could get together more often. Glynn House Inn in Ashland, New Hampshire not only sent us this recipe, but also offers a full gluten free breakfast menu and several dog-friendly rooms.
