Amaranth Flour Banana Bread
I tried a recipe I found online http://bit.ly/pKx2XQ, but was not impressed with the results. I made a few changes to the recipe and tried again. The result was perfect (or at least what I consider perfect). Michael and I tried a slice of this bread with MaraNatha's Dark Chocolate Almond spread and it was very yummy!
Preheat oven to 350'F.
In a medium bowl combine the dry ingredients (ground almonds, amaranth flour, arrowroot powder and baking soda). In a small bowl, combine the mashed bananas, grapeseed oil, honey, eggs, lemon juice and vanilla. Pour the liquid mixture in the bowl with the dry ingredients. Fold together - be careful not to overmix.
Pour into a greased loaf pan lined with parchment paper (bottom).
Bake at 350'F for 55-60 minutes. Bread will be done when a toothpick is inserted in the middle and comes out clean. Place on a wire rack to cool. Serve with butter or your favorite jam.
