Banana Bread (gluten free adaptation)

Cody really, really wanted me to make banana bread with the bananas that were slowly going bad on our counter.  Since I’m such a nice wife, I forfeited TWO breakfast smoothies to make his bread.  The things I do for him…

This bread is probably one of the healthier recipes- no butter or oil, very little sugar. And it’s THE tastiest one I’ve tried.  The loaf didn’t even last 24 hours… so good!
