Healthy Gluten-Free Banana Bread

Healthy Gluten-Free Banana Bread Recipe

A lot of gluten-free baked goods are dry and crumbly, but this one tastes like the real thing. I hope you try it!

Prep: 20 min. Bake: 45 min. + cooling Yield: 24 Servings

2 cups gluten-free all-purpose baking flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 eggs
2 cups mashed ripe bananas (4-5 medium & chop and freeze & defrost before)
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup (125 ml) unsweetened applesauce
1/3 cup (75 ml) canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking soda and salt. In a small bowl, whisk the eggs, bananas, sugar, applesauce, oil and vanilla. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.
Transfer to two 8-in. x 4-in. loaf pans coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle with walnuts. Bake at 350° (175°) for 40-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks. Yield: 2 loaves (12 slices each).

Believe nothing…

Believe nothing,

no matter where you read it

or who has said it, not even if

i have said it, unless it agrees

with your own reason and

your own common sense.
