Pre-Gluten Free Era in our home, I had a banana bread recipe that was just right; good with nuts or without, made with whole wheat and honey. I've been working on a replacement for some time and I think this is it! We've made these three times this week and with various flour mixtures and they are very forgiving.
The first attempt had tapioca starch and lots of sorghum. The next attempt had no starches added at all as I had run out, and the last attempt had very little sorghum. It even doubles beautifully, yay!
