Needless to say, I am dying without cakes and bread...so in an effort to get the goodness in my belly without all the other stuff that goes with it, I am experimenting and found a good one:
Gluten Free Banana Bread (or muffins)
2 cups gluten-free all-purpose baking flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups mashed ripe bananas (4-5 medium)
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/3 cup canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (gluten free of course)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking soda and salt. In a small bowl, whisk the eggs, bananas, sugar, applesauce, oil and vanilla. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.
Transfer to two 8-in. x 4-in. loaf pans coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle with walnuts. Bake at 350° for 45-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks. Yield: 2 loaves (12 slices each).
* I made mini muffins so I turned the temp on the oven down to 325 and baked till they were golden brown. I don't like nuts in my banana bread so I put some on top for those who like them...so I can tell which is which. Bite size goodness!*0
