I love to bake and I love banana bread. I decided to attempt to make some GF banana bread the other night to see if it would be any good. It far exceeded my expectations and I wanted to share the recipe with you since several people asked for it on Twitter. On a random side note...Mr. Healthy Diva loved this recipe & he is picky with a capital "P".
2 cups gluten-free all-purpose baking flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups mashed ripe bananas (about 4-5 medium bananas)
1 cup sugar (I used stevia)
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/3 cup canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Pre-heat oven to 350
Mix ingredients. I mixed all of the ingredients together in the same bowl with my kitchen aide mixer. It will appear “runny” but don’t worry, it will be okay.
Spray 2 loaf pans with cooking spray (I used pam) and transfer the batter into the pans.
Instead of using two loaf pans I used one muffin pan to make muffins and then put the rest of the batter into a loaf pan.
Bake for about 25-30 minutes or until a tooth pick comes out clean.
Might take less time if you just make muffins, will take more time to bake (40-45 minutes) if you just use two loaf pans.
Nutritional Facts (1 slice or 1 muffin) (I am not sure how much this changes with using stevia vs. sugar)

YUM. DELISH. AMAZING.
Questions for you:
Do you love to bake?
What are some of your favorite GF recipes (if you have any)?
Anyone else experience symptoms of a gluten allergy? If so, what did you take out of your diet?
I hope that everyone has a fun & safe MDW!!!!
