My gluten free, sugar free Banana bread! YUM

I decided to do some baking today.  I wanted Banana bread but since cutting out gluten and sugar I am on a mission to find or create delicious recipes!!!

I played around and created a YUMMY Banana bread recipe.  Next time I will leave out Coconut flour (I don't like it) & use all rice flour. Or if I get brave enough I will eventually cut rice flour & use blanched almond flour.  (BTW love my new lens hubby got me for Christmas! Can't wait to use it in a shoot).

Here's the outcome, and the recipe:
1 1/2 cups White Rice flour
1/2 cup Coconut flour
2 eggs
1/2 a cup of soft butter (I LOVE Kerrygold (Trader Joes $2.50, Whole Foods), it's from grass fed cows, much more vitamins & minerals than regular butter. Only thing better than this is Raw grass fed butter, which I've made before {I'm pretty proud of that!}. YES butter is good for you! The more yellow the richer in nutrients.... Butter, not margarine.)
1/4 c milk  (organic if possible)
1 tsp baking soda
1 tbsp stevia
2 tbsp raw honey (local if you can)
I mashed banana (I mash it right in the peel)
1/4 cup walnut pieces (optional)
Mix all ingredients in a mixer, scoop into a bread pan, bake at 350 for 30-35 mins (I don't usually time things, I poke them with a knife & take it out when its just a little under done to keep it soft and very moist...)

{For a total Paleo recipe, substitute rice flour for almond flour & milk for a 1/4 c coconut milk.}

Topped with butter & a dribble of honey.....DELICIOUS!

I have a couple friends doing GF. I will have to pass it along! The question you asked about the Greek yogurt (the email said no reply, I tried it as sour cream for the first time a couple weeks ago and I couldn't tell much of a diff AT ALL. The only difference to me was that it is creamier and richer than my water FF sour cream, but I liked the creaminess. I haven't tried it on a baked potato yet, but as far as in soups it has been great. :)

I have a question.... Do you use coupons for your ingredients? I have found coconut flour, rice flour, and almond flour to be VERY expensive. I really tried to eat healthier, more organic, but it was breaking the budget and unfortunately there aren't too many coupons or good sales on organic foods.

Tiffany, that's why I LOVE rice flour. it's very cheap. you don't need any coconut flour for this one if you don't want to. :)
