Gluten Free Sugar Free Banana Bread

Gluten Free Sugar Free Banana Bread I haven't done a lot of baking since I've gone gluten free.  Since my candida has cleared up I've been starting to add a little bit of fruit back into my diet.  I had been putting banana in my morning shakes and had a few that I wasn't able to eat fast enough so I decided to try out some banana bread.

This is an adaptation of a recipe I found on glutenfreeconfessions.com.  I only had 3 bananas and I thought 6 was a little too many for banana bread anyway. I used a combination of brown and sweet white rice flour and didn't use any nuts.  My recipe was just enough to make one good sized loaf. I was happy with how much the bread rose after baking. Past attempts at banana bread didn't rise very much and were very dense but not this time.
