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.

Pilgrim Hat

Today my Auntie L had these neat little treats on each of our place settings for Thanksgiving dinner. They are pilgrim hats! Cute, right? The bottom is a chocolate, striped shortbread cookie upside down. The top is a mini Reece's Peanut Butter Cup. She spread a small amound of yellow buttercream frosting on the Reece's, and turned it upside down and placed it on the upside down shortbread cookie. The decor on the hat is an orange colored candy {looks like a Reece's Pieces, perhaps}. I thought these were super cute!

Happy Thanksgiving!!
