Gluten-free Banana Bread

Gluten-free Banana Bread

Recipe by Gluten Free Baking By Rachelle (Rachelle Himmelman)

This is my most favorite time of the year to bake, the weather is just starting to turn colder, leaves are 

changing, and the days are getting grayer. I find that I like to light some candles put on some soothing

music and bake and the smell of fall is in the air. My husband LOVES banana bread and has been

 hinting for weeks that he would sure like some, so I gave into his hints yesterday and made him two

 beautiful loaves of Gluten-free Banana Bread for him to snack on. I have a hard time keeping anything

 like this around especially with the kids and him fighting for every last crumb. This bread not only

tastes fabulous but freezes beautifully.
