Banana Bread Gluten Free

I was just searching through my blog entries, and I can't believe I haven't posted a gluten free banana bread recipe, especially since I make it all of the time. If you do a search for "banana" in my blog, you'll find a wealth of recipes, many of which are actually vegan recipes I've tried out, and they are all delicious!

I'm very excited to share this recipe with you now. Honestly, banana bread is so forgiving, you can just sub a gluten-free flour blend right out with the AP flour in the a recipe. Here's one of my favorite gluten free banana bread recipes:

1 cup almond flour
1 cup gluten free flour blend (Bob's Red Mill has a good one, and now even my local Trader Joe's has one!)
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 salt

1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
3 large very ripe bananas
2 eggs
1/3 cup milk (any percent will do)
1 tsp distilled vinegar or lemon juice
optional add ins: 1/2 cup nuts or chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350. Butter and flour a 9 x 5 x 3 inch pan. 

Sift the flour with the baking soda and salt in a medium bowl and set aside. Combine the milk and lemon juice in a cup or small bowl. Mash the bananas very well together in a medium bowl.

In a mixer fitted with the paddle attachment (or with a hand mixer), cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the bananas and mix another 20 seconds or so. Add the eggs, one at a time, just until incorporated.

Slowely and alternately mix in the flour mixture (in 3 parts) and milk mixture (in 2 parts), beginning and ending with flour. Blend well after each addition. Pour into pan and bake for about an hour until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
