This is the best gluten free banana bread I have ever tasted. The recipe handed down from my mother has been a hit in our family for decades.

This recipe was wonderful! Would fool anyone into think it was flour! I mixed it a little differently. I beat shortening and sugar until fluffy. Beat in eggs, mashed banana, milk and squeeze of fresh lemon. Then mixed in all dry ingredients together. Baked beautifully, no foil to cover. 40 to 45 minutes in my oven. Yum
