Recipe developed by A Lazy Girl's Guide to Gluten Free. Find the original recipe here  
  • 2 or 3 very ripe bananas
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • dash of salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1-1/2 cups King Arthur Gluten Free Multi-Purpose Flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons Xanthan gum
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 345F. Spray a loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a mixer, combine the bananas, sugar, melted butter, vanilla on medium-low speed. Add egg and mix until blended.
  3. Add baking soda, salt, xanthan gum, and flour. Stir until blended - do not over mix.
  4. In a separate small bowl, combine the brown sugar, sugar, and cinnamon.
  5. Spread half of the batter in the greased loaf pan. Sprinkle about half of the sugar/cinnamon mixture evenly over batter. Spread remaining batter and top with remaining sugar/cinnamon mixture (I ended up having a little left over since it seemed like too much).
  6. Bake for about 45-50 minutes. I started checking it at 35 minutes and it was done at 45, so watch it closely.
