This is the best banana bread I've ever eaten and it's the buttermilk that is the secret. When my kids see that our bananas are past their prime, they ask me to make a loaf of this fantastic bread!

all purpose flour
1 3/4 c
whole wheat flour
1 3/4 c

1 tsp
salt
2 tsp

1 tsp
baking powder
1 tsp
cinnamon
1/8 tsp
nutmeg
2 c
bananas, mashed
4
eggs
3/4 c
butter, melted
2/3 c

1 tsp

This IS the BEST Banana Bread ever!! My family loved it. I have Celiac disease so I have a gluten intolerance and cannot use wheat, barley, or rye in my cooking. I used 1/2 Jules gluten free flour blend and a 1/2 Bob's Red Mill gluten free flour blend. I also added about 3 T. ground flax seed to give it more fiber. It turned out beautifully and moist and the two loaves were gone in no time at all. My husband was complaining about only getting 2 slices!! I know I will be making more banana bread this week. Thanks for sharing your recipe. :)

You absolutely can double the all purpose flour. I do that myself about half the time.
