Banana Nut Bread Recipe - Donna Knows Some Stuff
Donna's GF Banana Nut Bread
1/3 cup of canola oil
2/3 cup packed light brown sugar
2 eggs (room temperature)
1 tsp organic vanilla extract (not imitation)
1 3/4 cups Bob's Red Mill All-purpose GF Baking Flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp Xanthan Gum (health food store or Shop Rite sells this)
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups mashed bananas (the more ripe, the better)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
raisins are optional

Directions  (you will need 3 bowls)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a non stick loaf pan.  (I used baking spray.  Make sure it is GF)
In a large bowl, cream the first four ingredients together with an electric mixer.
Mix the next four ingredients together in a medium bowl.
In a separate medium bowl mash bananas.  
Slowly mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients alternating the bananas.  Beat until smooth  Approximately 1-2 minutes.  
Fold in nuts.  Fold in raisins if using.
Transfer to prepared loaf pan and bake 50 minutes or until golden brown.  Insert a thin knife to check for doneness.  ENJOY warm.  With or without butter.  

Personal notes:  Do not taste the batter or mind the aroma!  This tastes awesome once it comes out of the oven.
Serves 10.  Approximately 6 WW plus points.  Roughly calculated.  If you slice 12 pieces then it is approximately 5 WW plus points.
