Gluten free vegan banana bread

I actually think I am a poster girl for BOB, Bob´s Red Mill company. I think I would look good next to Bob´s picture 🙂  For the past month I think I have bought half of their products, and I´m not done! There is still so many different ingredients that I need. Cooking gluten free and vegan – in my case means without eggs, is very interesting. I´m making up my own recipes and so far so good 🙂

I have used my old recipes and invented new ones, I´m just substituting “the regular flour” I have used in the past, with 6 or 7 different flours. It will take forever now to make something but that´s fine 🙂

*This is not the actual recipe that I used but this is how I build the new one!  I decided not to use coconut flour and apples in the end from the old recipe. Too much shredding without food processor that broke down a day earlier. The first time ever I used egg replacer powder.

I was actually pretty skeptical about my abilities to build a new recipe with the gluten free flours because this is the first time that I’ve used most of them  🙂 But I guess there is no actual room to mess up since they are all flours….I think. If I have a story in the future when something goes really bad, I will let you know. In this case my banana bread turned out great! I was super surprised! And maybe you are too 🙂

I could not wait to taste it so I cut it up when it was still steaming hot 🙂 And I loved it!
