May 17th, 2014 | Gluten Free Banana Bread with Preloved Toronto
Mmmm banana bread. A few weeks ago, I got together with Preloved to test out some of their home goods. (I spy some aprons, place mats, and a wicked quilt in the photos above!) I have to admit it… I’m actually kind of in love with their vintage styled aprons. If you follow me on instagram you probably noticed the #ApronOfTheDay series I’m posting… I promise its leading somewhere. Somewhere with free things. For you. So keep an eye out for that! Anyways, we spent the day baking banana bread, and I adapted this recipe into a gluten free friendly one! This is seriously the best banana bread I have ever had. Enjoy folks!
• 3 ripe bananas, smashed
• 1/3 cup melted butter
• 3/4 cup sugar
• 2 eggs, beaten
• 1 tsp vanilla extract
• 1 tsp baking soda
• 1 1/2 cups gluten free all-purpose flour
• 1/2 tsp xanthan gum
• 1 /2 cup walnuts
• 1/4 cup milk • salt
Method 1. Mix together mashed bananas and butter in a large bowl. Add sugar, egg and vanilla. Add baking soda, salt. Mix in the flour and xanthan gum then milk. Finally, add the chopped walnuts and mix. Do not over mix, batter will be lumpy.
2. Cover your pan with tinfoil, shiny side down, and butter. Pour the batter into the pan and sprinkle more walnuts on top. Bake for 1 hour at 350F.
