Gluten-free, Soy-free, Dairy-free, Corn-free Banana Bread

OMG! It is beautiful today. I am probably the only person in the united states enjoying 72 degree weather right now! It is like an Indian summer. Amazing!

This morning I made a delicious goat cheese, broccoli, and mushroom omelet.

Way better than my winter time fav of a half a sunflower seed sandwich.
And yes that's gluten-free bread, and I'm pretty sure it will kick any store bought gluten-free bread's rear. (cough, udi and rudi, cough)

I know that for most of you it is still rainy or snowing, so how about a nice warm gluten-free Banana Bread? I thought you might like that.

For this recipe you will need:

Gluten-free, Soy-free, Dairy-free, Corn-free Banana Bread

2 C Brown Rice Flour
1 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Xanthan Gum
1/4 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Nutmeg, fresh grated
2 Eggs, organic preferably
1 1/2 C Mashed Banana, I usually like mine brown then the ones in the picture, but I had to make bread right then.
1 C Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla extract
1/2 C Canola Oil

This is a one bowl recipe, which is awesome!

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, Xanthan gum, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg.

3. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients, then add the banana, sugar, oil, and vanilla. Mix the wet ingredients in the well, waiting to incorporate the dry ingredients until mixed thoroughly. Now combine the wet and dry ingredients. At this point you can add any add-ins you want: chocolate chips, walnuts, or even dried cranberries.

4. Pour into a bread pan and bake for 60 min or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

5. Let cool then eat.

Beautiful and delicious!

No problem! This is by far the easiest, most delicious banana bread I've ever had.

I just wanted to point out that in order for this recipe to be corn free, you can not have baking powder in it....the first ingredient in baking powder is cornstarch...

Well Anonymous, normally that is true. However I use Hain Featherweight Baking Powder which is Sodium free, Gluten free, and Corn free. It is made with Potato Starch. Another option is to make your own baking powder with Arrowroot Powder, Cream of Tartar and Baking Soda. Many sights have the recipe for making your own baking powder. Here is thelink to mine:
