wheat free banana bread

Dave hates bananas and I have trouble committing to a whole bunch. They used to become banana bread and this week I went back to my old ways of eating 3 bananas and turning the leftovers into bread. It came out nice and dense, a little crumbly but very good. I head in the morning with a bit of butter.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Mix Dry stuff in one bowl
2 cups featherweight flour blend
1 tsp baking soda
.25 tsp salt
1 tsp xantham gum
In mixer (or by hand in second bowl)
1/2 Cup Butter (wait- don't throw wrapper away)
3/4 cup brown sugar
Blend together
2 Eggs
3 over ripe bananas
Blend well
Add dry stuff and stir enough to mix and moisten dry with wet
Use butter wrapper to grease 9x5 loaf pan
bake for 60-65 minutes until toothpick comes out clean
Cool in pan for 10 minutes the remove and rest on wire rack
You can also stir in chocolate chips for a bit of flair
