My son has celiac disease. I have slowly experimented with his favorite recipes to create gluten-free versions that are also yummy enough for the non-celiacs to enjoy. This banana bread is extremely close to the original. Everyone gobbles it up, despite the pecans, which I add for a little extra nutrition.

  4. In large bowl, mix butter & sugar together. Add eggs, bananas, vanilla, cinnamon & nutmeg.
  5. In small bowl, mix dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, xanthan gum).

  7. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients, stir just until combined.

  10. Bake 35-45 minutes (less for 2 small loaves, more for one large loaf).
