Easy Gluten Free Banana Bread

As soon as the weather cooled off I knew I had to bake something.

I wanted something sweet, but I struggle with the gluten free baking.  I’ve learned that using one type of specialty flour sometimes creates baked goods that taste like sawdust.  Mixing flours is a must, but I shy away from recipes with long lists of funky ingredients that I don’t know if I’ll ever use again.

With that in mind, I decided to modify a standard recipe.  I baked this banana bread recipe substituting two brands of gluten free baking mix and brown rice flour for the wheat flour.  The only other change was a slight increase in baking powder. 

It’s yummy and moist and a very forgiving recipe.  I may try to create some variations on this one, like cinnamon apple bread.  Or pumpkin pecan bread.  Or zucchini bread. 

Whether you eat gluten-free or not, this recipe is a keeper.

    Not a fan of banana bread, but I’m bookmarking it on your recommendation for trying some other variation.
