I used to have a banana bread recipe that I loved, but after going gluten-free, I learned pretty quickly that simply substituting gluten-free flour wasn't going to get the job done. So I had to embark on a search for a gluten-free banana bread recipe that actually tasted good.
My problem with gluten-free breads in general is that they tend to be kind of dry and mealy. This GF banana bread from Taste of Home, however, is nothing of the sort. I suspect that the applesauce might be the key.
My bread didn't actually turn out looking like the picture above, because I didn't add the chopped walnuts. Maybe next time.
My previous banana bread recipe was excellent with some chocolate chips added, so I may try that next time as well. Yum.
I did feed this recipe to non-GF friends at a brunch, and they enjoyed it just as much as I did. Score! My kids also gobble it. Double score!
So here's the link, and here's the recipe transcribed for my family's cookbook, with full credit to Taste of Home.
