A yummy and tasty banana bread that no one would know that it is gluten and dairy free.

banana-bread-800x600

I love banana bread, my kids love banana bread, Grant loves banana bread.  Sounds like all is well in the world!  And this recipe is a good, solid one that never fails.  And is always up for a bit of tweaking to try new flavors etc.  Feel free to leave your bananas slightly chunky for added texture, but don’t miss out the cinnamon!

So it’s not one of ‘those healthy’ recipes with no refined sugar, but can no one would notice if you make it gluten and dairy free (but not taste free!).  Try it and let me know what you think!
