Hello friend! Remember a while back when I took you all behind the scenes baking my favorite banana bread recipe?! I am FINALLY sharing it with you! HOORAY!
9 ½ ounces Gluten-Free Flour Blend
1 tablespoon baking powder

2 large eggs
5 ¼ ounces light brown sugar

3. Transfer all of the banana juice to a medium saucepan and cook over medium to high heat until the juice has reduced to 1/4 cup. Return reduced juice to the bowl, add in bananas, and mash everything together with a potato masher until mostly smooth. Whisk in melted butter, eggs, brown sugar, and vanilla.
