***Tap Tap Tap***  This is a test, only a test!  I decided to use the rice flour in my pantry in this morning’s banana bread, which, by the way, was not planned, like a lot of little chillins in families!  The four black bananas on my kitchen counter were either going to be thrown out or used~~this was not a hard decisions.  I love banana bread, especially those choked full of walnuts, and I wanted to test the rice flour to see how it’d work.

So I looked on the side of the package, saw a recipe for muffins–one cup of flour and 2 teaspoons of baking powder–I thought, wow, I’ll really need to ramp up the baking powder since I’m using 4 cups of flour.  I like my banana bread with the true unadulterated banana flavor–don’t like to camouflage it with spices or even vanilla, but if you like it that way, have at it.

Since I’d made a lot of batter, I decided to split and add different add ons to each, hence, I did one as a smaller bundt cake with golden raisins and the other as a loaf of ‘bread’ with coconut and diced apple pieces~~yes, I had a golden delicious apple on my counter, too, that had a skin that was in the ‘old age’ stage~~time to toss it in!

Yield: Makes One Bundt Pan or One Large Loaf Pan


  • Preheat Oven to 350
  • 4 ripe mashed bananas
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1 (6 oz.) container Greek plain yogurt
  • 1 cup canola oil
  • 1 ¼ cups milk (whole, 1 or 2%)
  • 4 cups rice flour
  • 3 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups chopped walnuts
  • Optional Adds for MORE Sweetness:
  • 1 cup shredded sweetened coconut
  • 1 apple, skin on, diced
  • 1 cup golden raisins


  • Combine in a large mixing bowl, the bananas, eggs, yogurt, oil, milk and blend.  In another bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt.  Add the one-third of the dry ingredients to the wet and blend until all is incorporated.  Add the walnuts and blend.
  • Add whatever variation of other ingredients you want.  I divided the batter and made one loaf of apple & coconut and one smaller bundt cake with golden raisins.
  • Bake in a preheated 350 oven about 60 minutes or until a toothpick comes out basically clean. You may want to cover loosely the tops (after about 35-40 minutes of baking) with doubled foil if the top is getting too brown.


Optional add ons if you prefer your banana bread sweeter.
