Banana Walnut Bread

Banana Walnut Bread - Behind is the bread machine
One day I saw a recipe for Gluten Free Banana Walnut Bread on internet, and wanted to try it. This recipe uses Bread machine. My hubby also told me that he likes Banana Walnut Bread. But he used to eat the regular Banana Walnut Bread, not Gluten Free. So, I decided that I should give a try.

Yes, that was yummy. That was definitely delicious. Everyone liked the bread, even my both kids. And it was all finished in 2 days only.

But there was one ingredient which I wanted to avoid - yeast. So, I again tried to find another good recipe for GFCF Banana Walnut Bread. I found a recipe - Gluten Free Dairy Free Banana Bread from 'Book of Yum'  I tried that recipe. It was good. I modified the recipe according to our taste & also to make Banana Walnut Bread. So, here is the recipe. I hope you all will like this.


2 cups Brown Rice Flour or Gluten Free All Purpose Flour
1/2 cup chopped Walnuts, toasted (See below)
1-1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/4 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Ground Cinnamon
2 Eggs, beaten
1-1/2 cups mashed, ripe bananas
