As a "foodie" I LOVE food! All kinds even the kinds that aren't good for me. I have gluten sensitivity ever since I pretty much gave it up this year to help treat my heart condition. (Did you know gluten clogs the nerve receptors throughout the body?)
I have been scouring Pinterest, google, and even bought some cookbooks to make gluten free treats and meals. One thing that is difficult for me to give up is bread. I've been eating UDI's gluten free breads but that can really add up in price.
I had some bananas that were very ripe and got to thinking that I haven't had banana bread in probably years! So I started looking for a gluten free banana bread recipe and I found a couple I thought I would try- this is the first one & for the life of me I can't find the person who came up with the recipe! So this isn't my recipe but here it is:
1/2 cup almond butter (I used homemade peanut butter)
1/2 cup gluten free flour (I used raw coconut flour)
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla (I used this kind)
4 tbsp butter (don't mix this in the batter)
Mix everything together in the order you see above (except the butter)
Preheat the oven to 350
In a glass loaf pan, run the butter on the bottom and sides
Pour the batter into the loaf pan and pop it in the oven
Bake for 30-40 minutes - checking it with a tooth pick
Overall mine turned out pretty good and I was pleased!
What I noticed is that it isn't as solid as gluten based breads and doesn't stick together as easily. I don't suggest just handing a warm piece to a toddler and letting them run out the door with it. I cut mine up and laid it out on a wire rack to let it cool. Once it has cooled it should be more solid!
I'm looking forward to making more gluten free breads !
