Easy, simple and delicious, this Banana Bread recipe is moist and full of flavor. The streusel nut topping puts the flavor over the top! And, you can even make a gluten free version!
In a small bowl, combine 1/4 cup packed brown sugar, 3 Tablespoons of gluten free flour and the chopped walnuts.
Ensure your butter is at room temperature and add to a small bowl.
Using your hand mixer, slowly mix the ingredients together until you have a mixture that resembles course crumbs. Set aside.
Preheat oven to 350. In a large mixing bowl, take the flour, Xanthan Gum, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt and mix well with a whisk.
In a separate large bowl, combine the eggs, bananas, sugar and butter. With an electric hand mixer, mix on low until the ingredients have been mixed together. Don’t over mix!
Add the liquid mixture to the center of your flour mixture and mix well with a spatula. Fold in the walnuts.
At this point, the consistency of the mixture will be more on the liquid side and not so much on the dough side. This is the expected consistency. Pour your mixture into the loaf mold or loaf pan.
Take your bowl of Streusel Nut Topping and sprinkle it over the batter. Cook for 60 minutes.
When the bread is done cooking, if you are using a flexi mold wait about 2-5 minutes and turn your mold over onto a cutting board. As you can see, the loaf comes right out with no crumbles.
If you are using a traditional loaf pan, wait until the bread is completely cooled before turning over.
Slice the loaf and enjoy with a little butter spread on each slice and a cup of hot coffee!
