Gluten free banana bread (easy & low in sugar)

So this one day I found 3 overripe bananas in the office. I was just on a gluten free quest and had bought gluten free flour, so I felt like a winner when I discovered this recipe that hardly has sugar in it.

However the mixture based on the original recipe turned out way too moist, so I started adding things myself until the mixture was somewhat firm and looked like it could bake enough (I have a bad reputation with under cooked, flat and dull cakes. Except for this delicious marble cake). I didn’t have much hope when I put the banana bread it in the oven, but it came out and I fell in love. The taste was delicious, it looked voluminous and my friend was absolutely stoked about it.

So I felt the need to post it here. For future banana reference.

Keep in mind I altered the ingredients and I couldn’t trace back the perfect portions, but just like me you can do it by feeling. Just bare in mind that the mixture needs to be between moist and firm between putting it in the oven.
