Gluten Free Banana Bread
My son asked me a couple of days ago for banana bread. He's never asked me for it before and it is his papa's favorite. I thought that it'd be a great first project for Culinary Collective , an import and distribution company specializing in gourmet cultural foods. I'll be creating, stylizing and photographing the foods I create with their products for the company. I just picked up a box full of gluten free products to work with. I'm very excited to work with CC and their amazing products.
I admit that I'm not very familiar with gluten free foods that much YET, therefore I wasn't sure how this banana bread would turn out. I found the recipe at this blog site. I liked this recipe because it uses almond meal in it. I love anything almond, except marzipan. I used quinoa flour from CC and also their amazing vanilla extract. I also added some freshly grounded cardamon seeds and cinnamon. I used brown sugar for the color's sake and reduced the amount in half from the original recipe. I don't like my sweets too sweet. I often reduce the amount of sugar from many recipes.
My 3-year-old son helped me with whipping the mixture as he always likes to do. My baby daughter was having a great time licking my new measuring spoons I just purchased. It seems like that's what she likes to play with all the time - spoons.
