A nice afternoon treat!
Just Like Mom's Banana Bread
My Mom is a great baker and often had banana bread baking in the oven after school. There is nothing better than the smell of homemade banana bread baking in the oven!

Makes 1 loaf or 12 muffins
3 ripe bananas mashed
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 tbsp ground flaxseed with 2 tbsp of hot water (let sit for a minute) or 1 egg

1/2 cup coconut palm sugar or light brown sugar
1 1/2 cups gluten-free flour*
3/4 tsp xanthan gum (optional)
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp nutmeg (optional)
1/2 cup dairy-free chocolate chips (optional)
1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2) In a large bowl add all ingredients and mix until moist.

*Tip: A healthier flour option would be 1 1/2 cups of quinoa flour.
I have also used rice flour (white or brown) or 1 cup of all-purpose gluten-free flour and 1/2 cup almond flour
