Gluten Free Friday: Banana Bread

Banana bread is something that I made all the time before the gluten intolerance.  It seems like there are always bananas that are past that “we’re still good to eat as is” stage.  It took me a while to get around to adapting my regular banana bread recipe to gluten free, but the results were…wow.  Nobody would know this wasn’t wheat.  This made 3 mini-loaves, 4 servings each at 244 calories and 2.5 grams of fat.

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups banana
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tbs baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp xanthan gum
  • 1/4 cup milled flax
  • 3/4 cup brown rice flour
  • 3/4 cup sorghum flour
  • 1/4 cup garfava flour
  • 1/2 cup potato starch
  • 1/2 cup tapioca starch
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Mix the banana, applesauce, eggs, and sugar in one bowl.  Set aside.
3. Mix the remaining dry ingredients in another bowl.  Make a well in the center.
4. Add the wet to the dry and stir until well combined.
5. Divide among 3 oiled mini-loaf pans.
6. Bake for 35-40 minutes.
