Gluten Free Banana Nut Bread


  1. I love banana bread Shayna & me too I bake banana bread at least twice a month! πŸ™‚ your recipe looks delicious and your pictures are gorgeous too! I’m sure your cookbook will look great and will have great recipes as well! πŸ™‚ there is nothing better than a ‘grandma’s’ old recipe & yes adding chocolate chips is a great idea! πŸ™‚
    thanks for sharing it with us today!

    Looks yummy, Shayna. What a great tribute and memories to pass down from your Grandmother. Banana bread is one of my favorites, and my staff sometimes bakes that for me for my birthday. I’d much rather have that than cake! Have fun with the book.

    • Shayna says:

      THANK YOU so much, Mary! I’m so excited to be putting a cookbook together. πŸ™‚
      And, I could totally have banana nut bread for my birthday “cake” too!

    • Shayna says:

      THANK YOU so very, very much! We love banana bread and I am so thrilled to be making a cookbook full of these very special recipes!

    Recipe sounds easy and good and the pictures are wonderful. However, as I scroll down on the right side is a flashing animated ad that says to never eat bananas! Do you have control over those ads? That’s what I call irony.

    • Shayna says:

      THANK YOU so much, Wilda! It is such a yummy recipe!
      And it’s totally ironic that there are ads against bananas on my sidebar… I don’t have control over them… But in same cases I wish I did! πŸ™‚

      • Wilda says:

        Well, Shayna, I’ve decided to live dangerously and ignore that ad. I’m looking forward to making your Grandma’s Banana Nut Bread. I’ve been cooking and sewing for 60 years but I’m not much of a baker. When I was 7 yrs old, I would stand on a kitchen stool to reach the cooktop. My widowed Mother was an RN. I cooked up a storm every time she left the house, right after she would beg me not to cook! I’ll let you know how much I love it. . .

  5. Shayna, that is so sweet. πŸ™‚ I love that you are doing that cookbook!!! Hope to see more of those recipes in the next few months… and I love that you worked the plate into the cookbook. Gorgeous photography!

    I just saw your post about making a family cookbook. I had the same idea the other day as a gift to put together for my daughter graduating from college this year, and then the other 5 grandkids as they get older — my mother loved to cook and my siblings and I have so many of her recipes. Do you have an online book company you were going to use for the cookbook? I have scanned and made a “scrapbook” of a vacation using the Apple photo albums, but none of them are really geared for a lot of script (i.e. the recipes).

    And also, I have some of those same plates from my grandmother’s house! When she passed away my aunts asked what I wanted and as I lived many states away I asked for just a few samples of her blue plates. My aunt thought it was funny — she said she thought some of the plates came from the grocery store (where you saved stamps to get them)? I absolutely love looking at them.

    • Shayna says:

      Great minds think alike, Kathy! We are going to use blurb to publish the book, but my cousin is a pro with computers so he is building it with one of his programs.
      And yes, I believe my grandma collected the plates from stamps at the grocery store. I know she worked really hard to grow her collection, so I cherish them! πŸ™‚

    Thanks for sharing this recipe! I made a loaf this week, and it is wonderful! (in fact, I may have had it for breakfast *and* lunch yesterday ….) I ended up having to bump my oven temp up to 350, and bake it a little longer, but it was sooooo delicious!

    • Shayna says:

      THANK YOU so much, Rachel! I am so thrilled you tried it! And you’re not alone… when it’s in our house we have it for breakfast, lunch, snack and dessert! πŸ˜‰
      So happy you liked it! πŸ™‚

  8. Tasha says:

    Hi Shayna- I tried your recipe and loved it. I had to cook it for about 20 mins longer than you suggested but it tastes great! Thanks so much for sharing and good luck with the cook book:)
