Gluten-Free & Dairy-Free Zucchini Bread

Standard

I bought a loaf pan today and felt it neccessary to put it to use. I made zucchini bread…yummy! I will post the recipie the next time I make it, because I have to tweak it quite a bit. Don’t get me wrong, it’s really good. But I know I could make it better. I think next time I will put in less cinnamon, and more zucchini. But I promise to post a recipe later, I just thought it looked so yummy and needed to share the picture.

No measurements, but here is what I put in it:

GF baking mix, shredded zucchini, canola oil, eggs, cane sugar, walnuts, salt, cinnamon, vanilla, unsweetened applesauce

Gluten-Free & Dairy-Free Banana Nut Bread

Standard

Super Simple, Made From Scratch, GF Banana Nut Bread….muffin stlye!

To be completely honest, the only reason I made them “muffin style” is because I do not own a loaf pan yet. :) Anyway, I am so so proud of myself! I have never attempted to make any type  of bread before this, and it turned out amazing! I wish everyone could smell it.

I am still new to the GF world and imagined that everything bread was going to be dry and crumbling. I was wrong! These muffins are amazing, they are moist and sweet. You just have to make them for yourself.

This is my first experience with GF baking, and I was thrilled to find an all-purpose flour. I was stressing out before I went to the store. I was trying to imagine trying to find all of these different types of flours, and how big of a bill they would lead up to. Then, I found the all-purpose GF flour and it made my day.

Ingredients used to get ^^this exact muffin:

2 cups Arrowhead Mills GF All Purpose Baking Mix

1/4 tsp salt

1 tsp baking soda (I actually forgot that the mix had some in it already, but the muffins turned out great so I will probably screw up on purpose and keep adding in extra)

4 eggs

1  cup of Florida Crystals pure organic cane sugar

1/2 heaping cup unsweetened applesauce

2 cups mashed ripe bananas (about 5 medium)

1/3 cup canola oil

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 cup chopped walnuts (1/4 cup and 1/4 cup)

In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, salt and baking soda. In a smaller bowl, combine the eggs, sugar, applesauce, oil, vanilla and bananas. Whisk wet ingredients together and then add them to the dry ingredients. Stir 1/4 cup chopped walnuts into the batter.

Place paper baking cups into the muffin pan. Fill the cups almost to the top with batter. (this will produce a nice top on the muffins) Sprinkle the remaining walnuts on the tops of the muffins.

bake at 350°  for about 20-25 minutes. Do the tooth pick test.   It will yield 18 large muffins, like the one pictured above.
