Gluten Free Banana Nut Bread

I followed this recipe from Gluten Free Goddess’s blog, and basically substituted it with gluten free Patisserie Mix and some Crème de Riz you get at Naturalia – the latest Bio store that has opened up in a few places in Paris. Her recipe calls for using Chocolate Chips; I just substituted that with 1 ½ cups of mixed nuts, as I know C loves them! To make things a bit healthier, I also replaced the sugar with Maple syrup, but if you don't like the taste of it, you can use honey or brown sugar.

1 ½ cup gluten free flour
1 cup rice flour
1 tsp baking soda
2 ½ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt
3 ripe bananas mashed
1/3 cup butter
1 cup maple syrup
2 tsp vanilla essence
1 ½ cup mixed nuts

• Beat the butter and maple syrup together until frothy
• Sift the flours, the baking soda + powder and the salt.
• Add in the flours and vanilla essence to the butter mixture.
• Fold in nuts and the mashed bananas.
• Pour into individual baking cups / mini cake moulds and bake for 40-50 minutes or until well done in a pre-heated oven @ 180°C.

Eat with whipped cream or some dark hot chocolate!
