1/2 cup white rice flour
1/2 cup tapioca flour
1/2 cup potato starch flour
1/4 cup sweet white sorghum flour
1/4 cup garbanzo and fava flour
1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
1 teaspoon gluten-free baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda

1 cup mashed ripe bananas (2 medium)
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C). Prepare a muffin pan by placing baking cups in the cavities or by coating the cavities with cooking spray.

In small bowl, mix flours, xanthan gum, baking powder, baking soda and salt with whisk; set aside. In medium bowl, beat eggs, oil, milk, bananas, brown sugar and vanilla with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Gradually add flour mixture, beating until well blended. Stir in chocolate chips. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups, filling each about three-fourths full.

Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes; remove from pan to wire cooling rack. Serve warm.
