Banana Bread Recipe
0

13 posts in this topic

Someone asked for a recipe without any gums, and this could probably be adapted to use some other fruit besides bananas, also? I made it last Friday, came out great! I based it on a recipe in my 30 year old Fanny Farmer cookbook, which is my favorite. I used 2 bananas instead of 3, and left out the nuts just because I'm avoiding most nuts at the moment.

Banana nut bread

3 ripe bananas, well mashed

2 eggs, well beaten

2 cups flour [i used 1 cup white rice, 1/2 cup brown rice, 1/4 cup each of tapioca and potato starch]

3/4 cup sugar [i used 1/2 cup granulated cane and 1/4 cup light brown C&H sugar]

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder [i added this from the original, since it's gluten-free flours]

1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts (optional)

Mix everything together well, I mixed the wet & dry ingredients separately, then added the wet to the dry. It's a moderately stiff dough. Pour into a buttered loaf pan, bake for 1 hour at 350. Adjust for your oven, I baked it for about 55 minutes. Remove from pan on to a cooling rack for at least 30 minutes before slicing. Enjoy!

I make this all the time and it is great. I use my sorghum flour mix (with brown and white rice) with it and add cinnamon and a bit of nutmeg.

When I mentioned possibly using other fruits, I had maybe apple or pear in mind. I haven't had a mango in years, though. Please reply back and let us know how it is! And you're welcome. :)

I was also thinking of something with a little more "body"?? than mango". It's that nice stickiness of the banana I think that holds it together so nicely :) without the gum.

Yum! Looks great--I normally make my banana bread with the Gluten Free pantry Muffin Mix but will keep and try this too.

Shroomie--I always add cinnamon and nutmeg to my banana bread. Love it that way!

How much sorghum/brown/white rice do you use? Do you also mix potato starch or tapioca?

Looking at my blends (I have two, one for heavier, one for lighter) the ratios for sorghum, brown rice and tapioca are 1-1/2 / 1/ 1/2 and 1 / 1 / 1 respectively.

Thanks for your feedback, Marie & Mushroom. I think the mango might work because I googled recipes for mango bread today and they look pretty much the same as regular quick breads, but I could be really wrong. I'm not sure how much fruit pectin mango has compared to bananas or apples. Anyway, the mango is defrosted, I'll make it this weekend and report back. :D

Thank you! I will try that. It looks good!

I made the bread this morning substituting mango pulp and half a chopped apple for the mashed banana. I also added 1/2 cup sunflower oil to the wet mixture. My only remaining loaf pan is 8", so I poured some of the batter in two ramekins and baked them along with the bread.

The ramekins were cooked in less than 30 minutes and cooled quickly, so by the time the loaf was done, we were able to have delicious warm bread for breakfast! :D (They had nice eye appeal too, I tossed some dried cherries on top of them before baking.)

I'll be using this recipe often. DP loved it, noting that it didn't really taste like mangos.

My intentions were to make banana bread this morning and make a smoothie out of the mango. I picked up 4 dark skinned bananas at the fruit market on Friday (they charged me 9 cents for them). I peeled the first banana and it was perfect fruit for eating, but not overripe at all.

So I went with plan B (my original plan A) after eating the banana. Thanks again for the recipe.

    • Celiac Sensitivity?
      For dining out, check out the website: http://Www.findmeglutenfree.com.  They list restaurants with gluten free menu's and options in your area and there are reviews from other celiacs on there to help you figure out the better, safe places to eat.  Great web site!   Although it is optimal to not dine out at first, reality sometimes gets in the way.  I had booked a trip months before I got really sick and would have lost a lot of money if I did not go.  A month after diagnosis, I flew overseas and ate out for dinner only every night.  I ate plain foods but they were well prepared so still quite good. I never got sick.  I was careful and it worked. Luckily, Europe was way more gluten free knowledgeable than the US at that time and still is.  So, it can be done if you are very careful!
    • Anyone experience brain fog like this?
      Thanks for the reply, melprkr! Feeling like you're still in a swimming pool moving is a good way to put it. It feels kind of like motion sickness, come to think of it, or a really bad hangover. I was curious because my experience of 'brain fog' in the context of thyroid problems feels so different than brain fog caused by gluten, and I couldn't quite figure out how to explain it. Swimming pool comes pretty close, though. Hope you feel better soon as well!
    • Anyone experience brain fog like this?
      Brain fog is a common symptom.  I had a hamburger patty from a local restaurant and am suffering the effects.  Sometimes mine is bad and sometimes it is mild.  This one feels mild, provided I am not "glutened" again.  I have the exact same feelings when I am contaminated.  I actually had 2 good days this week to ony have to go back through this again.  The first day is just tired and want to sleep, but as each day goes on it seems like all I can do to concentrate and do anything.  TV is OK but for me just standing up or moving sometimes makes me dizzy.  Luckily I don't have the nausea but even sitting still I feel like I am in a swimming pool moving.  You know kind of like when you were a kid and you got in the pool or went roller skating but then got out and and you still felt like you in the pool or skating?  The anxiety and the depression is the worst.  I am taking things to help with it but it doesn't always help.  Only thing that seems to help sometimes is just going in to my room and laying there and not moving and just going to sleep.   It will pass.  Just be cautious about everything.  I have opted to let my family know that I will bring my OWN food when we have gatherings.  I don't mind being the odd man out because I am already the odd ball.  One thing I have learned and that is people mean well but mistakes happen and we are the ones who have to pay the price.   Hope you feel better soon.
    • gluten intolerance, dairy intolerance and fructose
      Look into The Paleo Approach by Sara Ballentyne, PhD.  Great resource and will probably answer your questions.  I have the same problem. You have to really read labels.  The only coconut milk I can use is an organic canned one.  Others have too many ingredients that are problematic.  For now, stay with meat and vegetables as someone else has recommended.  If rice works for you, great.  If not, winter squash is good.  The diet change is overwhelming at first but then it starts to make sense.  The one good thing about an intolerance versus allergy is the possibility of someday being able to add it back into your diet once your gut has healed.
    • Anyone experience brain fog like this?
      I went gluten free about a month ago, and was finally feeling *great* last week when wham -- my well-meaning Dad cooked me dinner and forgot to check the ingredients on the fish sauce he used. The upside of being glutened for the first time is that, after a couple weeks of feeling good, I feel like I can discern the symptoms a lot better now. I've noticed that the worst part, aside from the nausea, is the "brain fog," but I'm curious if my experience of brain fog is the same as or similar to what other people are feeling. For me, it becomes almost physically painful to concentrate on anything. If I try to read a book, or watch a TV show, it makes me feel dizzy, overwhelmed, and nauseous. For a couple days, I feel like all I can do is try to stay still and do as little as possible while I wait it out. It feels similar to anxiety, but not quite the same, and none of the usual tricks for getting through a panic attack help. Do any of you experience brain fog in a similar way? Where it basically makes you feel sick to try and concentrate on anything, even fun and relaxing things?

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
