Banana Bread with Rice Flour (Gluten-Free) // Easy Gluten-Free Baking //


One of my good friends is Gluten Intolerant. And she has been pretty upset about it lately. I decided to make a gluten-free recipe for her. Something to cheer her up a little! I too eat gluten-free food sometimes. I don't have any problems with gluten but I certainly enjoy the healthy options twist into my baking. I often make banana bread with rice flour instead of all purpose flour/plain flour.  

Rice Flour doesn’t contain Gluten and it’s a great substitute for all-purpose flour when it comes to baking. J. loves banana bread with rice flour, my Mom loves it and even my sister--and they are not gluten intolerant at all! However, I decided to make this bread recipe for my friend B. So I went to the bulk store near my place and bought some more rice flour. As soon I've got home I started my baking.  After waiting for a while, finally, the two fresh loaves of banana bread came out from the oven. (one for my friend and one for me!) I could hardly wait for the loaf to cool so I can have a good thick slice. Needless to say that the house was full of a great sweet baking aroma, that makes me even more anxious!
Finally, ready! I wrapped the bread and went to my friend’s B. house. After delivering the rice flour banana I came back home with a heart full of joy but also hoping that B. would enjoy the bread since this was her first time trying gluten-free food. I wanted to know her thoughts about it! Next morning, she called me and told me that she was totally amazed to know that the bread was totally gluten-free and she enjoyed every single bite. The taste was just as good as the original version, she said!

Note: This gluten-free Banana Bread can also be made completely Refined Sugar-Free, simply use honey or coconut sugar instead of refined sugar. Other Refined Sugar-Free options: organic agave, maple syrup or rice syrup.🍯
