We have all heard and seen recipes out there, claiming to be the BEST ever. I know that labeling it that way makes for GOOD blogging, however some of these recipes just are not what they claim to be.
The BEST, that is.
Our oldest son is on a Gluten Free diet and we are constantly trying out new things on are own as well as looking for recipes that seem to be tried and true.
Banana Bread is a staple in our home. We love the way it warms the house with it’s delightful aroma and we Certainly LOVE the way it taste. I have tried a couple Gluten Free Banana Bread recipes, but each one proved to be a bit on the bland and dry side.
I recently came across this great website called,
And wouldn’t you know she had a BEST EVER recipe for, none other than, YES!!!!
I was a bit skeptical to give it a try but, figured why not. I had all the ingredients on hand and EAGER children willing to try yet another recipe, so we dug right in ( I was holding my breath, the whole time.
Would this recipe prove to be the BEST EVER???
Well I guess we’ll just have to see.
Here’s what was needed,
1.) 1 cup sugar ( I did, 1/2 brown sugar & 1/2 white ), 4-5 ripe banana’s
2.) 1 1/2 cups brown rice flour, 1/2 cup sorghum flour
3.) 1/2 tsp salt, 1 tsp baking soda
4.) 1/3 cup coconut oil melted ( being that it’s hot here I didn’t have to melt the oil :) 1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup applesauce
4 pastured eggs
Preheat oven to 350.
1.) lightly beat eggs, 2.) Mash banana’s, 3-4.) Add applesauce and vanilla then mix thoroughly
1.) Mix in flours, salt and baking soda and coconut oil ( I added my oil at this point because my eggs were still cold, I didn’t want my coconut oil to harden on me. ) 2. ) Mix and beware of those trying to taste tests while snapping pictures :) 3.) Add mashed banana’s and mix. 4.) pour into oiled bread pans ( makes enough for two loafs )
I could of actually used my smaller loaf pans.
Place in the oven and bake for 45 minutes or until cooked in the center.
At this point the house was smelling REALLY, REALLY good!!
I was a bit excited but still however cautious in thinking that this might actually taste good!!
However I was EXTREMELY eager to take a bite and didn’t even wait for it to cool a bit, before I turned the pan over to take the bread out. It broke in half and was STEAMING hot, however I had the perfect bite size pieces laying there waiting for me to gracefully ( okay, maybe NOT so gracefully ) pick up and give it a try.
I will have to agree with the Name of this recipe. It truly was the BEST EVER, Gluten Free Banana Bread we have ever tried and tested.
If I didn’t know any better, I would have NEVER thought that this was a Gluten Free bread.
