Gluten Free Banana Bread

As I sit here typing this post, I am smelling the most amazing aroma coming from my kitchen! I have banana bread in the oven! It only has about 20 more minutes before it's final resting place in the stomachs of the three of us in this household.

Banana bread is by far one of our favorites! Here recently, I have been making it without pecans, which to me is just sinful, BUT, I do have an almost 14 month old who doesn't need those pieces of pecans just yet! Oh the sacrifices we make as mothers.

This recipe is straight from Pamela's BUT, I have made adjustments to make it better!!! Well, I guess that's my opinion. The only way you will know is if you make it both ways! (Don't waste your time, just make mine!!!!!!!)

I hope you enjoy!!

Banana Nut Bread

1 3/4c of Pamela's Pancake and Baking Mix
1/2c of Sugar or Honey (I use sugar)
3 Rotten Bananas (Anywhere from 2 1/4c-3c., we REALLY like banana)
4T of butter, melted
2 eggs, beaten
3/4c of Pecans, chopped (Optional)
1t Vanilla
1/8t Salt

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and grease a loaf pan. Combine the baking mix, sugar and salt. Then add in your bananas, eggs and vanilla. After all is combined, add in your pecans.

Place in your loaf pan and bake for 60 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean. Baking for 60 minutes is a good time if you have 2-2 1/2c of banana, adjust for a wetter batter, AKA, more bananas!

Let cool as long as you can stand it and ENJOY! I always top with a little bit of margarine, I don't know why, I just feel like it's yummier on top than butter!!! T minus 10 minutes and counting until mine comes out of the oven!!!


  1. I just wanted to say thank you so much for making this blog. My mother was recently diagnosed with Celiac Disease and she often sacrifices her dinner just to make all of us (6 kids) a meal she can't eat. This blog is going to be very helpful in our everyday life. God bless!

    1. I am SO glad to see this comment!! You do not know how much that means to me! I can say that I was in her exact shoes four years ago!!! I hope you guys enjoy my blog and I hope it helps you guys get creative with some of your own recipes!!

  2. I noticed you said always use milk over water...can you explain why you do this? I am just starting out going G-Free, just a few months. I need all the help I can get figuring out recipes and how to make them seem more like "normal". Thanks for any help you can give me!
