Well, if time in the kitchen sparks your fancy, this gluten free banana bread is a real winner. Also, a bonus was that my toddler was able to help by mashing the bananas and mixing ingredients together. I’ve mentioned in the past that my daughter had a reaction to eggs, and we were instructed by the allergist to try them in a baked good, so this was our long overdue trial. Thankfully all was good and she thoroughly enjoyed it. Needless to say, it’s kid approved! Stay safe everyone.


  • 3 medium ripe bananas, mashed
  • 3 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp salt
