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.

    • Do you mean something like a protein powder you could mix up?  A lot of them in the US seem to be gluten free.  Maybe just go to your local store and read all the labels?
    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.  
    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
    • Hi everyone, I am doing job in restaurant at evening 5 to 12 during working hours no time to do a dinner. I'm thinking to make a shake but don't know the gluten free vitamin or supplement brand which one is good for me and easily available in Berlin Germany to make me fit cause last one week i feel weak. I'm 28 year old. Sincerely
    • Hey there just wanted to warn anyone that has other allergies- these crackers may not be a good choice! I'm mildly sensitive to MSG- I only react if there's a giant amount like in Chinese food or Ramen noodles, etc.  I literally have a to eat TONS of a the offending food before reacting.  Anyway, I was excited to try these Trader Joes pumpkin crackers, kept hearing about them on the radio .... and they're gluten free!  (I have Hashi's).  I ate about 3/4 of the box last night. Woke up this morning with a red itchy face and nasal congestion, headache, anxiety. Hallmark symptoms for me of high MSG intake. (It does say yeast extract on the side but it's pretty far down the list). So if you're sensitive.... stay away! Apparently these particular crackers are loaded with it.
