This recipe fits in my 7 cup food processor. If your food processor is smaller, or if you don't have one, you could do the same thing with good results by using an electric hand mixer in a bowl and beating the ingredients until they are well combined and as smooth as possible. That said, a few banana chunks are tasty to me, but some may not prefer that texture.
4 medium overripe bananas
1/2 cup oil (vegetable, canola, or coconut oil in its liquid state), OPTIONAL if making muffins- I forgot the oil once & it turned out FINE!! I haven't tried omitting oil when making it in a bread pan, but the texture was great as muffins- not spongy!
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup white rice flour
1/2 cup flax meal
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. salt
nuts or chocolate chips (*optional, see note below)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place peeled bananas, oil and sugar into food processor and blend until smooth. Add remaining ingredients and process until smooth. Pour into lightly greased loaf pan and bake 1 hour or until firm in center. Allow to cool slightly (5-10 minutes) before removing to rack to cool completely. It will taste great whether you have patience for it to cool and firm or you like to eat it in its crumbly warm state. I hope your family enjoys this as much as mine does!
*Note: If you want to add 1/2 cup nuts or chocolate chips, just add them in after the other ingredients have been processed together. Either pulse the processor a few times to mix them in or fold them in by hand.
