banana bread  350º; loaf pan, 40 minutes

• 1 1/2 cups Bob Red Mills 1:1 Gluten Free flour or whole spelt flour (if gluten is ok)
• 2.5 med-large bananas, mashed
• 1/4 cup coconut palm sugar 
• 1/4 cup sunflower oil (or coconut oil)

• 3/4 tsp baking powder
• 3/4 tsp baking soda

optional add ons:
• 1/3 c dark bittersweet chocolate chips
• 1/3 c frozen wild blueberries

MASH bananas in a large bowl

ADD sugar and oil (and prune puree, if using); add egg

MIX dry ingredients in a medium size bowl (including add ons, if using)

ADD dry ingredients to wet ingredients with a danish whisk, careful not to over mix

POUR using a spatula, transfer mixture to the loaf pan. 

BAKE test with a toothpick in middle of loaf. remove pan when ready and allow to cool on a cookie rack before serving.

I always find this even tastier the next day, so feel free too cook a day in advance before serving.
