Gluten Free Banana Nut Bread

Gluten-Free Banana Nut Bread

Quick breads, typically ones that don’t involve yeast, are some of the best treats to start with when you’re first going gluten-free. Most of these are dessert or breakfast breads, like this Gluten-Free Banana Nut Bread. These types of breads are easy to convert from gluten-filled to gluten-free and they are the type of treat that gives you a sense of accomplishment as a new gluten-free cook/baker!

Made with simple ingredients like eggs, bananas, vanilla, baking soda, and sugar (I use Wholesome Organic Sugar), this is such an easy baked good, perfect for the fall baking season! This also makes a great gift for a host, neighbor, or friend.

    I modified the recipe as I made it for a friend needs to be gluten & dairy free. I also made muffins, instead of bread. They turned out great. I used King Arthur GF measure for measure flour, 1/2 cup (1 stick) of Earth Balance “butter” & only 1/2 tsp kosher salt. I used paper liners & made 12 muffins, filled close to the top. I baked for about 18 minutes at 350, ning at the half way point. They puffed up & turned out beautifully. Very well received by my friend who said they were VERY tasty & good. Also, I usually let my bananas sit out for about 2 weeks before using. They were almost totally black but still perfect on the inside for baking. Definitely great banana flavor.
