Banana Nut Bread (Gluten-Free)
In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease. In 1998 I created The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore!, and I am the co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.View all articles by Scott Adams

Combine the rice flour, nuts, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large mixer bowl. Add the banana mixture alternately with the oil to the dry ingredients, mixing well at low speed. Pour the batter into two 8 x 4 inch loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees F for 50-60 minutes or until done. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans.
