Printer Friendly

¾ c. brown rice flour blend
½ tsp. ground nutmeg
1/8 tsp. baking soda
¾ c. yellow pea flour
2 large eggs, room temperature
¾ c. sugar, plus 2 tsp for topping
2/3 c. honey
2 tsp. baking powder
½ c. canola oil
1 tsp. xanthan gum
2 large very-ripe bananas mashed
1 ½ tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. pure vanilla
½ tsp. ground mace (optional)
½ c. chopped pecans (optional)
½ tsp. table salt

Place rack in the middle of the oven, preheat oven to 350 F degrees.  Generously grease a 6x4 inch nonstick metal loaf pans. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the yellow pea flour, rice flour blend, baking powder, xanthan gum, cinnamon, mace, salt, nutmeg and baking soda until well blended. Add the eggs, honey, oil, bananas, and vanilla and beat with electric mixer on low, just until blended. Increase speed to medium and beat another 30 seconds. Stir in nuts. Spread evenly in pans. Let stand for 10 minutes. Bake 35 to 40 minutes, until brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Lay a sheet of foil over the first 15 minutes to prevent over-browning. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes, remove from the pan, cool completely on the wire rack.
