Banana Nut Bread

1 cup mashed bananas, ripe
1/4 cup nuts, chopped
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. baking soda
2 Tbsp. flax seed, ground
1/4 tsp. salt
1 1/4 cups flour*
1/4 cup vegetable oil

Combine bananas, sugar, oil and vanilla in a medium bowl. Whisk together. In another bowl, combine the flour, nuts, baking powdre, baking soda, and salt. Stir together and then form a well in the center of the dry ingredients. Pour the banana mixture into the well in the dry ingredients. Stir until blended. Do not overstir. Pour the batter into two 8 x 4 inch loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees F. for 50 - 60 minutes or until done. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans.

*The banana bread loaves pictured are gluten free. I used 1/2 cup of gluten free all-purpose flour blend (Bob's Red Mill), 1/4 cup garbanzo flour, 1/4 cup white rice flour, and 1/4 cup sweet sorghum flour. Any combination of gluten free flours will work well in this recipe or only rice flour.
