It’s fiesta friday again and this time I come bearing another guilt free gluten free treat! I’ve mentioned it before a while ago but I recently found out that I have a sensitivity to gluten and of course, I’m not going to let that stop me from having pastries of sorts! Lately, I have been trying to figure out how I can have a gluten free version of my favorite treats.
Now as you may know, my all time favorite pastry of all time is banana bread so of course I had to start with that one! Instead of using whole wheat/all purpose flour, I decided to use oats and since I’m trying to go sugar free, I decided to let my ripe bananas do their job and do the sweetening for me (: If your bananas aren’t ripe enough for banana bread, try baking them in the oven at 350F for 15 – 20 minutes and the heat will ripen them right up for you!
