Gluten Free Banana and Cinnamon Cupcakes

Overripe bananas are just perfect for cakes, this recipe isn't Vegan but bananas can be used in place of eggs to make Vegan cakes, this recipe however uses both. The banana and cinnamon paired together add a gorgeous flavour to the cakes, a bit different from your regular run of the mill banana cake.
