Amazing Gluten-Free Banana Bread

Gooey, flavorful, light and satisfying. Need I say more? The original inspiration for this recipe came from one of my visits to Canyon Ranch. They serve their version of this bread every morning at their rocking breakfast buffet (I don’t recommend eating this daily, it’s extremely hard to resist). Here is my spiced up gluten-free version that we make over and over again. Sprinkle some granola or nuts on top for added crunch. This bread is a staple in our house for breakfast on Saturday mornings and when there’s the rare leftover, I serve it as an after-school snack with almond milk. Bake away.
