Organic Gluten Free Banana Bread
Grease Pans. Bake at 350° for 35-40 min, or until knife inserted comes out clean.
2 C. Organic Rice or Quinoa Flour
½ t. Aluminum Free Baking Soda
1 t. Ground Organic Cinnamon
½ t. Ground Organic Nutmeg
2 Free Range Eggs, Beaten
2 C. Mashed Organic Bananas
1 C. Organic Sucanat
½ C. Organic Applesauce
¼ C. Chopped Raw Organic Walnuts (optional)
(Frosting optional, see below)
Combine dry ingredients except the sugar. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture.
Mix eggs well. Add applesauce, bananas and sugar and mix well.
Pour egg mixture into flour mixture. Mix just enough so flour is moistened. Pour into greased pans*.
*I like to use a few small pans of different shapes and sizes instead of one large bread sized pan. It’s more fun and you can freeze some for later. I used 4-5 small tins and baking dishes of different shapes. It averaged out to be 5 dishes. Banana bread thaws out nicely, but just be sure to wrap it good so there isn’t freezer burn. And don't forget to label it!
Frosting:Blend 8 oz. softened Organic Cream Cheese with 1 t. Organic Vanilla and 1 C. Organic Powdered Sugar**. Spread on top of loaves after they have cooled completely. This is my husband’s absolute favorite cake: “Banana nut bread with cream cheese frosting”.
** I made my own powdered sugar by blending 2 C. Organic Evaporated Cane Juice ‘til powdered and then adding ½ C. Tapioca Flour and blending a little more. It turned out pretty good. A lot less expensive than buying it outright.
