Recipe: Gluten Free Banana Bread
I have been craving banana bread for a while now. I finally perfected a recipe that yields delicious moist bread!
1/3 cup Olive Oil.
2/3 cup of packed brown sugar.
2 large eggs.
1 tsp. gluten free vanilla extract.
1 ¾ cups gluten free all-purpose flour.
2 tsp. gluten free baking powder.
1 ¼ tsp. cinnamon.
1 tsp xanthan gum.
½ tsp. salt.
1 ¾ cups of mashed very ripe bananas.
2/3 cup of gluten free Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips.
½ cup finely chopped pecans or walnuts.
½ cup raisins (Be sure these are gluten free. Some raisins are dusted with flour).
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a bread pan.
Combine oil, brown sugar, eggs, and gluten free vanilla extract with a mixer. Add flour, baking powder, cinnamon, xanthan gum and salt. Mix together. Batter will appear thick. Add mashed bananas to mixture. Batter will thin out.
You can add whatever you like to the batter or nothing at all. I added chocolate chips and did not add nuts or raisins. I stirred in the chocolate chips instead of using the mixer.
Pour batter into bread pan and bake in oven for 1 hour. Enjoy!
