Okay, Okay, I know, I am really bad about posting my recipes to the blog. The sad part is I do not know why because I cook gluten free everyday. I guess I forget to take pictures when I am cooking a recipe and then I think about posting. It is very hard to post without the pictures to demonstrate what you are writing about.
In my husband's practice it seems more and more patients are being diagnosed with gluten sensitivity or Celiac Disease and a common complaint is how expensive it is to purchase gluten free items from the store.
This gluten free banana bread is easy to make at home at a relatively lower cost and is tasty as well. My two boys can devour a loaf in a few minutes so I always make a couple at a time.
Here are the ingredients:
3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup butter, softened
1 cup mashed bananas
1/3 cup milk
1 tsp. vanilla
1 2/3 cup King Arthur Gluten Free Multipurpose Flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. xanthan gum
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 cup coarsely ground walnuts
Mix eggs, butter, milk, vanilla, bananas, sugar together in mixer till blended. In a separate bowl mix flour, soda, salt, xanthan gum, and baking powder till combined then mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Blend well. Fold in walnuts. Pour into a loaf pan. Bake at 350°F for about 50-60 minutes.
I always use King Arthur Gluten Free Multipurpose Flour for my recipes but you are free to try any blend that you have on hand. Just check to make sure your blend doesn't have xanthan gum in the mix first. If it does, then omit the xanthan gum from the recipe.
