Gluten free Banana Bread Recipe

Ryan Foerderer shares this recipe for gluten free banana bread. Her 2-year-old has celiac, and she is starting out learning about gluten-free cooking & baking. Today she made her first gluten-free banana bread. It turned out pretty good. She used Robin Hood gluten-free flour for this recipe and xanthan gum is already added.
