The magazines feature a collection of gluten free recipes that are homebaked (and tested) for feasting and munching all year round. I created the magazines as an extension of the blog, so that there was one easy place you could go to for your gluten free Christmas baking needs. After all, I did create this space to share gluten free recipes with you, fellow gluten intolerant's, avoiders and Coeliacs alike and perhaps to occasionally vent my dislike of wearing certain shoes with particular outfits...

Ok. So, the good news I've been alluding to on Facebook : this year, I'm doing something a little bit different with the Gluten Free Scallywag Magazine, I'm sending the magazine to print!

Yoikes! I can't believe I've just put that out in the open (does a crazy slightly frightened kind of jig)*

Meanwhile, as I finish wrapping my head around the ins and outs of online stores(You can now order your copy here) cooking and shooting please grab your apron and whip up a batch of these delightful gluten & dairy free banana zucchini muffins. They've been made half a dozen times in as many weeks to get me through multiple flights back home, a dairy free birthday party (also nut free see substitutions) and the afternoon work attack of the munchies. They're light and full of delicious banana-ry spice. The addition of zucchini makes them, to me, nearly a breakfast food, so of course I cut down the sugar so they're just sweet rather than cloyingly so.

Enjoy them with a coffee and in a few short weeks you could even make a batch and enjoy one while flicking through your own copy of the Gluten Free Scallywag Magazine! Yooo, are you as excited as I am?

1/4tsp mixed spice

1/2tsp cinnamon

1/4tsp bi-carb soda

150g plain gluten free flour

1/2cup light olive oil or vegetable oil- I received some light olive oil from Bertolli that worked perfectly

100g castor sugar, I've been using raw castor lately, I love the flavour

1 egg

1tsp vanilla

1/2cup mashed banana - the blacker the better

1 1/3cup (1 large zucchini) grated zucchini, excess juices squeezed out
