Lemon Muffins with Chickpea Flour (refined sugar free, gluten free, egg free)

This lemon muffins with chickpea flour recipe is very popular in my household. I have been making it for the last few weeks as part of our breakfast. They are delicious, not to mention that they are free from refined sugar and gluten, making them perfect muffins to include in the start of your day or as a side to your main meal or as a snack. These lemon muffins with chickpea flour have a lemony taste (obviously!) and I am sure you will love them. I do not use any other sweetener besides ripped bananas, but if you would like to make them sweeter you can add other types of sweeteners such as honey, agave, or maple syrup.
