Date and Banana muffin - gf and no added sugar

These light sweet muffins are easy to make and have no added sugar.  This recipe makes 24 muffins.

4 ripe bananas (approx 400g when peeled), mashed
400g dates, chopped
4 eggs
120ml sunflower oil
400g lois's gf flour (40% urid, 40% tapioca, 20% cornmeal)
8tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon if wanted

Chop dates in the food mixer with some of the flour.  Tip into mixing bowl
Chop bananas and whizz in the food mixer with eggs and oil until smooth.
Whisk flour, baking powder and cinnamon together.  The batter froths because of the high baking powder content but the muffins don't sink when cooked.  You can use less baking powder if you want a firmer muffin.

Mix all together and spoon into muffin cases.

Bake at 180C for 20 minutes.

This recipe has no added sugar.  The dates and bananas give it sufficient sweetness.
