Banana Bread - Gluten, Egg, and Nut Free

Have a couple ripe bananas? It's time for banana bread!

There are so many recipes for banana bread and they are all similar...mashed bananas, sugar, flour, eggs...I read so many looking for one that would work for our house. I found this one which I thought looked different and intriguing. I did my usual "tweek" to the recipe and came up with the recipe below.

The batter tastes like heaven! Sweet banana flavor with a hint of orange. Delish!

2-1/2 cups all purpose gluten free baking mix
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon xantham gum
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter, softened (or butter substitute)
1-1/2 teaspoons Ener-G Egg Replacer*
2 tablespoons warm water*
2 very ripe bananas, mashed
2  tablespoons orange zest
1/2 cup milk (or milk substitute)
*If you are ok to have eggs, use one egg 
in place of egg replacer and omit warm water .
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
  • Combine flour, baking powder, salt, and xantham gum in bowl and set aside.
  • In separate bowl beat together sugar, softened butter, egg replacer, and water until smooth.
  • Add bananas, orange zest, and milk.  Mix together until combined.
  • Add flour mixture and mix until smooth.
  • Pour batter into greased bread pan.
  • Bake in oven at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes or until done.
