Gluten-Free Banana Nut Bread

Banana Nut Bread - YUM!
Wow, I really impressed myself this time! ;) So usually, when I have very ripe bananas, I throw them away - I've never made banana nut bread. But this time, I thought - 1) I can't waste these bananas and 2) I'm hungry!

So there I was with 3 very ripe bananas and Pamela's Products Baking and Pancake Mix. 

I searched Pamela's website for Banana Nut Bread and I found a recipe called Pamela's Banana Bread So, I knew I was in good hands! Let the baking begin!

Pamela's Banana Bread

Preheat Oven to 350

Beat together the following ingredients:   

4 Tbsp. of Melted Butter
1/2 C. of Sugar or Honey
2 eggs beaten
1 C. Banana
(I used 2 1/2 bananas)

Add the remaining ingredients and mix:

1 - 3/4 C. of Pamela's Baking and Pancake Mix
1/4 t. of Salt
1/2 t. of Vanilla
1/2 C. of Nuts (optional)

Pour mix into greased loaf pan                                       

Bake for 1 hour. Watch the time, I only baked mine for about 50 minutes.  When toothpick comes out clean,
loaf is done.

And - BAM!  There you have a beautiful loaf of Banana Nut Bread.

I'm happy to say that my first gluten-free banana nut bread was a success!  I was so pleased with the taste and moistness of the loaf - it was delish! Thanks Pamela for the recipe - you make gluten-free baking fun and easy!

  1. We love the Pamela's recipe's for banana bread, pumpkin bread and coffee cake! Try adding a handful of blueberries to the banana bread if you like blueberries. It's wonderful. (I used to make a Pillsbury banana-blueberry bread before my daughter was diagnosed so that's where the idea came from.)
