Introduction

My mom was diagnosed with celiac disease about 8 years ago. We have looked everywhere for delicious recipes that substitute other products for gluten. i was fortunate to come upon this wonderful recipe, which uses only 2 unusual ingredients: GF flour and Xanthan Gum. Even though I CAN eat gluten, I still very much enjoy this delicious banana bread. It is best hot from the oven!

It is super moist, bursting with flavor, and you would never know it was GLUTEN FREE :)))

Plus, it is very low in saturated fat and high in polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fat. It is fairly low carb for a banana bread and it also has 1 gram of sugar PER slice....and they are generous servings!

    Just made this bread, but substituted 1-1/2 cups pureed pumpkin for the banana and it was excellent. I suspect most fruit purees would work. I did not have the all-purpose mix, but created my own from mostly same flours: potato starch, tapioca, brown rice, and coconut. Just finished two slices! - 10/16/11

    I recently made this same recipe from the back of the Bob's red mill Gluten free All purpose flour. It was the best Banana bread I have ever had! I once even used Coconut oil instead of the Canola oil, which gives it such delish flavor! - 5/1/11
