Everybody loves bananas but in the heat of the summer, I find they seem not to last too long. When I am not using them for breakfast, smoothies or just as a snack, bananas go great by making Banana Bread. This seems to be a favorite of those who want a sweet treat and not want anything too sugary. In my days working in the medical office, many of my patients came in with various versions of banana bread and the smell while making this reminded me of the good times and great conversations I had with each of the individuals I came to know.
My household went under a change in the foods we were eating. My hubby who is recently watching how many types of different sweets he has been eating has been using Gluten Free flour. This has been a change in our diet completely but the taste and goodness are still there, and we are eating and feeling good about our food. We notice we felt better and lighter once we switch one aspect of the foods we were eating, but do not take my word for it. You should try it!
If you love Bananas, and they have gone ripe on you, then you should make this. I have added chocolate chips, nuts, and powered sugar to give it that taste I was looking for. But feel free to add it or not depending on your taste but it is always nice. Also, if you are seeking to make this with regular flour then does so. Either way, you will not know the difference, trust me!!!
Tell me what do you like with your banana bread?
- 3 Ripe Bananas

- 1 egg
- 1 ½ Cups of gluten free flour
- 1 teaspoon of baking soda
- ½ teaspoon of sugar
- ¾ cups of sugar
- 1 teaspoon of Vanilla extract
- 1 cup of chocolate chips (semi-sweet is best)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- In a large bowl mix all your ingredients by combing wet to dry. Mix well. Your batter should not be too watery. Add mixture to an oiled loaf pan. Place in oven for 60-70 minutes (time will vary from oven to oven so check it at the 1-hour mark)
