Today Is Cooking Friday: Vegan Gluten-free Sugar-free Fluffy Banana Quickbread

Quick rise in the purple oven

Catching up with friend C.W. the other evening, and I realize that I forget that I recently concocted this recipe for (get ready…) Gluten-free, Vegan, Sugar-free Fluffy Banana Quickbread.

I tell her about the book I’m tweaking, various work projects, an open-mic with A.H., how our 3 foster kittens are now adopted, and about my new coffee table creation.

But I completely forget to tell her about this easy banana bread recipe…

So, I’m telling you…here goes:

1/2 C. Bob’s Red Mill Xanthan Gum

1-3 Mashed Bananas

1 t. Baking Soda

1/3 t. Himalayan Pink Salt/ Sea Salt

1 t. Maple Syrup (used to spread over loaf top just before placing in the oven)

  2. Mix all ingredients except for Baking Soda, Salt, and the 1t. of Maple Syrup.
  3. Mix everything together except for the 1t. Maple Syrup.
