Blissfull Banana Bread

This is possibly the tastiest, and healthiest banana bread i've ever made. It's gluten, dairy, egg, soy and nut free. Lots of ingredients, but no lengthy process! And it's full of healthy fibers and fats from the flax seed, as well as tons of fruit! (Adapted from "The Gluten-Free Gourmet cooks fast and healthy" by Bette Hagman, a wonderful book!)

Combine dry ingredients:
1/3 cup bean flour
1/3 cup white rice flour or sorghum flour,
2/3 cup corn starch
1/3 cup tapioca starch
1/2 tsp xanthan gum
3/4 tsp baking soda
1 1/4 tsp tartar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp cloves

Set dry ingredients aside

Mix wet ingredients:
1/2 cup applesauce
3 tbsp flax seed
4 tbsp liquid (either apple juice or water)
1 tsp apple cider vinegar, or any vinegar
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
7 mashed bananas
1 cup raisins
5 drops stevia (optional for sweetness)
Touch of honey (optional for sweetness)

Add in dry ingredients, and pour into a sprayed 9x13 bread form.

Bake at 350 degrees for 55 minutes
