Gluten Free Banana Bread

I keep chopped bananas in my freezer and was looking for a great way to use them. I found this wonderful recipe at the Gluten Free Goddess blog. I just made a few of my own changes and got this amazing, moist and sweet banana bread that doesn’t taste gluten free AT ALL! I’ve tried banana breads before, but this is my first truly successful attempt.  I ate a couple slices of this with some butter when it was warm out of the oven, and I froze the rest because I’m trying to stock things in my freezer for the arrival of the new baby coming in January. This was my first time using this particular combination of flours and it turned out great.. I think I will be using it a lot now! I loved the chocolate chips and walnuts in this bread but of course they are optional. I use chocolate chips made with unrefined sweeteners, such as Sunspire grain sweetened chocolate chips. I used half coconut sugar and half xylitol, but you could use all xylitol or any sweetener you’d like.
