Gluten-Free Lemon Glaze Banana Cupcakes

I am always stuck with overripe bananas at the end of the week whenever I buy them.

Why? Because my stomach and raw bananas don’t always get along (what can a girl do?). However, they are nice to keep around in case I am in the mood for a smoothie.

But think about the poor bananas that aren’t chosen to be added to my smoothies end up over-ripening on my counter.

So, week after week, I am left with a few over-ripe bananas.

You might say, “Tayler, why don’t you just buy fewer bananas?”.

And to that, I’d say “you’d think that I’d have learned my lesson by now right?”.


Because I have so many left-over bananas, it means I am always on the lookout for ways to creatively use over-ripe bananas.

One of the ways I have been enjoying is making over-ripe bananas into Gluten-Free Lemon Glaze Banana Cupcakes!

I hope that this recipe wins your heart like it did mine (want more of a bread from traditional banana bread? Check this recipe out!)
