Gluten-Free White Chocolate Banana Bread

by Amie on February 28, 2011

It all starts with a lil’ batter.

Just a ‘bit of banana and some white chocolate chips. Fun combination, isn’t it?

I thought so.

Perfect for a Sunday night…

A way to unwind from the week and settle down with a little baking n’ jazz music with my family.

Cozy in my home, striking up the oven and getting down n’ dirty with some mashed bananas.

Yep, that was my weekend.

And it was grand.

One bite…and you’ll be in gluten-free bliss.

It’s a beauty.

Yes, this fancy lil’ loaf is a pure gluten-free goddess.

Seriously.

I mean, who can go wrong with a banana bread.

And when you add white chocolate chips. It only gets better. Don’t ya think?

Moist.

Sweet n’ delicious.

This is what came to mind with each bite dancin’ on my taste buds.

Toasted with a dollop of homemade almond butter (recipe to come soon) spread on top.

Done and done.

Yep.

Pure bliss.

Slice it up.

And take a bite.

Then, gimme a call and tell me how amazing it is.

Seriously.

You’ll be happy.

I promise.
