Gluten-Free Banana Bread


This gluten-free version blows regular banana bread out of the water. My friends and I can’t get enough of it. I’ve made this gluten-free quick bread over and over the past few weeks….we’re nowhere close to being tired of it. It’s a quick breakfast, perfect topped with salted butter with your afternoon coffee, or a comforting after dinner treat. 

Here’s My Notes:

1)I like to use Gluten-Free multi-purpose baking mixes, they’re easy and have everything you need…you don’t have to worry about finding any “special” ingredients. 

2)I do like to use a little xanthan gum, but it’s easy to find at any grocery now.

3)I like to use a rice baking mix and a garbanzo bean baking mix

4)To me…the key to a perfect banana bread every time is not overfilling the pan. If you have too much batter for your loaf pan, simply make a few muffins with the leftover batter.

5)I have always liked making my banana bread the day before I plan on serving it. Banana bread is always better the next day.
