Sick of Staring at Dead Bananas

I don't remember if I mentioned that for my New Year's Resolution, I resolved to stop giving my GI tract problems and chose to go Gluten-Free. This hasn't been an easy feat. I miss pasta, grilled cheese sandwiches, cookies, cake, pie... I could go on forever. I do not have much support which makes it difficult at times. Also I am short on money so I can't go out and buy fancy flours and G-F products.
One day I splurged and bought Bob's Red Mill G-F Biscuit Mix. And this is what I made.

Truly Quick Banana Bread
Contributed by Dana Freeman

  • 3 - 4 Bananas, very ripe
  • 1/3 cup melted Butter
  • 3/4 cup Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cup GF Biscuit Mix
  • 1/2 cup Walnuts-Baker's Pieces
Preheat the oven to 350°F.

Whip ripened bananas in a mixer or by hand. Mix butter, sugar, egg and vanilla into the whipped bananas. Add in the baking mix and beat for 1 minute. Add the walnuts and mix just to incorporate.

Pour mixture into a buttered loaf pan. Bake for 1 hour. Let cool and remove from pan. Makes 16 slices.

I'm totally going to buy this baking mix again.
It is totally worth this banana-y deliciousness.
