Gluten Free Banana Bread

Gluten Free Banana Bread

by Maria Alison at Ten at the Table

 

I am so thrilled to have Maria as my guest today sharing her Gluten Free Banana Bread. I know that Banana Bread is just an all time favorite of mine and always a treat. I can’t wait to try this recipe out! I hope you all enjoy this great recipe that will be perfect for sharing. – Angela

 

I like to take the gluten free option whenever there is one. And you can hardly tell that this banana bread is gluten-free. It’s moist, insanely delicious, and has the same texture and flavor as banana bread made with wheat flour! Sometimes I like to add chocolate chips to the banana bread, like I did today, and it just takes the banana bread to another level. The chocolate chips are completely optional but I use them for the flavor and the health benefits. You could also add in some chopped nuts if you’d like. read more

Grain Free – Gluten Free Bread 

One Serving

This Grain Free Gluten Free Bread is so quick and easy for all the times you want to add a slice of bread to your meal or make an open faced sandwich. 

I got the idea from my  Trim Healthy Mama book for making bread in the microwave. I love Trim Healthy Mama. Check out my review here.  You don’t have to use the microwave, you can bake this in the oven too. Sometimes life gets busy and I forget to plan ahead… that’s when I really like having recipes like this that I can make in a hurry.  read more

Iced Chocolate Chip Cookie in 2 Minutes

Grain free – Sugar Free – Gluten Free

Iced One Serving Chocolate Chip Cookie {In 2 Minutes}… Miracles do happen.

I’m so glad I discovered this recipe. I really am in love with coconut flour. It is the perfect flour for making a grain free cookie. I also just started using cocoa nibs in baking. They are a wonderful substitute for filling my desire for chocolate chips. If you like dark chocolate, I think you will love these.

Who doesn’t love chocolate chip cookies? I think everyone gets that craving at night… but you don’t want to make a whole batch of cookies (and be tempted to eat them all – because none of us have ever done that *cough*). read more
