Banana Bread

{this bread recipe is gluten, dairy and refined sugar-free. You can also use chopped apples rather than bananas as the main ingredient-Pink Lady & Honeycrisp are good for that}

The *starred* items represent substitutes or additions I have made.

1&1/2- 2 overripe bananas, smashed
3/4 c sugar*
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 eggs
1/4 tsp salt
1&1/4 c brown rice flour
1/4 c vegetable oil
1/4 c flax seeds*

* I usually substitute organic applesauce from Trader Joe's for sugar
* I also added the flax

Preheat oven 350`

Grease 1 loaf pan or 2 mini loaf pans

Combine: fruit, sugar*, vanilla, eggs

Mix: brown rice flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt

Mix everything together, add oil and flax

Pour into loaf pan

**I like to sprinkle some brown sugar and gf oats on top.**

Bake for 35-40 min

homemade goodness

I love this recipe! Feel free to experiment with it some to make it your own. For example, the original recipe {I found on the internet} did not mention applesauce or flax seeds. I added them myself.

I have also used this recipe sans fruit and sugar/applesauce for a plain bread. It turned out great to pair with almond/peanut butter, or dipping into balsamic vinegar and olive oil.
