I found this simple banana bread recipe, which definitely meets my criteria. It is easy, yummy, and I was able to convert it to gluten free with very little effort.
I used organic sugar and gluten free all purpose flour in my version.
One of the nice things about this recipe is that it doesn't require a mixer and can be mixed in one bowl for easy clean up.

- 10 minutes
- 55 minutes
- Makes one loaf
- 2-3 very ripe bananas, peeled
- 1/3 cup melted butter
- 3/4 cup sugar (1/2 cup if you would like it less sweet, 1 cup if more sweet)
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- Pinch of salt
- 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
1 Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C), and butter a 4x8-inch loaf pan.
2 In a mixing bowl, mash the ripe bananas with a fork until completely smooth. Stir the melted butter into the mashed bananas.
3 Mix in the baking soda and salt. Stir in the sugar, beaten egg, and vanilla extract. Mix in the flour.
4 Pour the batter into your prepared loaf pan. Bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour at 350°F (175°C), or until a tester inserted into the center comes out clean.
5 Remove from oven and cool completely on a rack. Remove the banana bread from the pan. Slice and serve. (A bread knife helps to make slices that aren't crumbly.)
