Are you looking for a healthy snack? Look no further. This moist Gluten-free banana bread is so good. It is so moist and very delicious. We have a neighbor that is not able to eat gluten and so I thought that I would take them a treat today. However I did make a small loaf for us because I could not miss out on tasting it too. My son came out of his room and said “what is that smell’? I told him banana bread and he said, “well it smells so good”. And the taste is just the same. My kids love it even if it is gluten free. I know that your family will too. I would have made this earlier, but I didn’t have any bananas. Funny how that goes. Sometimes those bananas will go bad before they get eaten, and then when you want them, they get eaten. Oh well, this was perfect timing.
This week my son went to his last high school dance. I don’t know where the time has gone. My baby is going to graduate! Then on to bigger and better things. He is not sure just yet what that will be, but I know he will figure it out. This was his first dance and he enjoyed it. He said that the only problem was, that where they ate took 45 minutes longer than they had planned because that is where everyone decided to eat. I have done a couple of dinners where we served it right in our home. That was a lot of fun. We have enjoyed having teenagers in the house, however sometimes mom and dad can be a little, or a lot, embarrassing. Isn’t that what parents are for? Well aren’t we so grateful that our kids can keep us humble?
I promise that this banana bread will never embarrass your kids. Try making some today and you will not even have to feel the guilt. And if you know of someone that needs gluten free, share with them.
Also I want to give a big shout out to my sister who does taxes. Wahoo! Today is the last day and it will be nice to have my sister back. We talk a lot but not in the months of January – April. She is very busy and so I try not to bug her too much. I am really grateful for her talents and I am so glad that she does my taxes and I don’t have too. I would much rather cook. I hope you all got your taxes done and that you got a nice refund. Happy end of tax season!
