Shopping List
    For the Banana Bread
  • 1 1/2 cups gluten-free flour blend (store-bought or homemade)
  • 3 very ripe medium-sized bananas, mashed
  • 1 cup cane or coconut sugar
  • 1/2 cup grapeseed oil (can sub up to 50% with applesauce)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt Mix-Ins (Optional)
  • chocolate chips, nuts, raisin, or dried cherries

Instructions
  1. Step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a nonstick loaf loaf pan with parchment paper so that the paper flaps hang over the sides.
  2. Step 2: In a bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients: flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Mix together the wet ingredients in another bowl: mashed bananas, oil and/or applesauce, eggs, and vanilla.
  3. Step 3: Fold the dry ingredients into the wet and stir until just combined. Fold in any optional add-ins you'd like or follow the cinnamon-swirl method suggested in Note 2.
  4. Step 4: Pour the batter into the pan and bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 55 to 60 minutes. Cover the bread with tented foil in the final 10 to 15 minutes to avoid over-browning.
  5. Serve: Place on the cooling rack for at least 10 minutes. Slice it up and enjoy.

Recipe Notes

Note 1: Recipe adapted from All Recipes.

Note 2: To make this into a cinnamon-swirled banana bread, optionally reduce the amount of sugar in the banana bread batter from 1 cup to 3/4 cup. Then mix together 1/4 cup cane sugar + 1 tablespoon cinnamon (per loaf of banana bread). Pour 1/3 of the prepared batter into the loaf pan and then sprinkle with 1/3 of the cinnamon sugar mixture. Swirl with a fork or knife and then repeat this process twice, swirling the final 1/3 into the very top of the banana bread.
