It is no secret that I adore the Wholesome Chow baking mixes. I have raved about several of the cakes mixes, including the new Lavender and Chocolate Lavender versions. I made pancakes from their Baking & Pancake Mix last year, but I had never used the mix for anything else. The mix has been renamed and is now “All-Purpose Baking Mix”, but still has the pancake recipe on the back. When I went to bake Banana Bread this week for Jon’s breakfast, I used my Wholesome Chow Organic All-Purpose Baking Mix as my flour.

Though I have many Banana Bread recipes, my go-to recipe is the one my Mom used to make for me when I was growing up. It is from the Betty Crocker Cookbook and I modified it to be gluten-free after I started the diet.
Gluten-Free Banana Bread
2 1/2 cups Wholesome Chow Organic All-Purpose Baking Mix
1 cup sugar
2 tsps. Baking Powder
1/2 tsp. salt
3 TBSP. canola oil
3/4 cup skim milk
1 cup finely chopped nuts (I used walnuts)
2-3 medium very ripe bananas (about 1 cup)
Heat over to 350*. Spray your bread pan (1 pan that is 9 x 5 x 3 inches or 2 that are 8.5 x 4.5 x 2.5) with PAM. Measure all ingredients into large mixer bowl; beat on medium speed for 1/2 minutes, scraping sides constantly.
Pour into pan(s). Bake 55 to 65 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
This Banana Bread was some of the best I have ever tasted! Jon enjoyed some slightly warmed in the microwave with butter on the first day of school. I love to smear mine with almond butter!
The Wholesome Chow mix worked just as expected and like non-gluten-free flour. I like to try new gluten-free flour mixes in tried and true recipes to get a good feel on how they really work. I have found over time that there are some gluten-free flour mixes that work well and there are others that don’t.
