Amazing Gluten and Lactose Free Banana Bread

Gluten Free and Dairy Free Banana Bread Ingredients

Ingredients

2 cups gluten-free self-raising flour
5 very ripe bananas
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup dairy free butter
2 eggs (egg replacement for vegans!)
2 tbsp almond milk
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
1 tsp baking powder (gluten-free!)
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup chocolate chips

  1. Preheat oven – 175°C – gas mark 4.
  2. Line a loaf tin with dairy-free butter.
  3. Cream butter and sugar – I use this wonderful device.
  4. Gradually add eggs, vanilla and bananas.
  5. Carefully add the dry ingredients – flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
  6. Pour into the loaf tin.
  7. Bake in the oven for 55 minutes.
  8. When you take it out the top will be burnt (it’s ok!)
  9. Stick a skewer in the centre through to the bottom – if it comes out clean it’s ready!
  10. Cool on a wire rack.
  11. Once cooled, carefully cut off the top as straight as possible.
  12. Flip out of the loaf tin.
  13. Cut and serve 🙂

Gluten Free and Dairy Free Banana Bread

Gluten Free Food Review – Kallo Rice Cakes

Oft! I have literally not found a Kallo rice cake that has not been awesome to eat. I will update this list each time I try a new one but so far here is my feedback on the tasty ones I have tried so far.

Chocolate Thins with Caramel Pieces – So, so good with a cup of coffee. Kurbs the chocolate biscuit craving and tastes awesome.

Lightly Salted Plain Rice Cake – Really nice on their own; but I have popped various toppings on them too. My favourite being hummus and a little chilli oil.

Quinoa and Seeds – I had these with some cream cheese and a sprinkling of spring onion. They were lovely.

Caramel – Another one for with that mid-afternoon cuppa to keep the energy levels up.

Supermarket Available Gluten Free Porridge – A Review

So, over the last few months, I have tried all of the gluten-free porridge I can get my hands on – to see if I can find one that is nice. However, I have now worked out that I am intolerant to oat, unfortunately. However, if you are a lucky person I have popped this review up for others to use. So, here we go.

Nairn’s Gluten Free Instant Porridge

8 Pack – £3 – Available in ASDA, Ocado and Waitrose.

This porridge was sweet, creamy and thick – a little too finely ground for me as I was a fan of barely processed oatmeal before.

Taste: 3.5/5

Texture: 2/5

Price: 3/5

Perkier Gluten Free Porridge Pot – Fruity Berry

One – £1.50 – Available in Tesco

This porridge was excellent – delicious and full of flavour.

Taste: 4/5

Texture: 3.5/5

Price: 2/5

Tesco’s Free From Quick Cook Oat Sachets Variety Pack

6 Pack – £2 – 2 x Original, 2 x Golden Syrup & 2 x Apple and Cinnamon.

These sachets are a bit more expensive and not as tasty an oat base for the flavours as others I have tried. The apple and cinnamon had bits of actual apple in it and was very tasty, the golden syrup was average and I literally still have one of the original ones as they weren’t the best.

Taste: 2.5/5

Texture: 2/5

Price: 1.5/5

ASDA’s Free From Quick Cook Oat Sachets Golden Syrup Pack

8 Pack – £2 – Available in ASDA.

This one is my favourite one out of all I tried – sweet but not overly, lovely texture like “real” porridge – I have bought this over and over again.

Taste: 4.5/5

Texture: 4/5

Price: 5/5

So there you have it – my gluten-free oats review. If I have missed any – I am sorry, but I am not able to continue this experiment, unfortunately.

Dearest oats – I will miss you.

 

Gluten Free Girlie Out and About – Wee Guy’s Cafe Glasgow – A Review

Wee Guy’s is one of those little places that make me feel at home. Before my diagnosis, my mum and I would go in there before I started work in the morning to have toast and jam and a chat. They even buttered and jammed the toast for you – and it was exactly how my grandma does it!

I digress, I am friends with the manager in Wee Guy’s, and I was chatting about missing my coffee morning with my mum. Claire told me that there was a girl who made the gluten-free cake for them and this week was chocolate macadamia and clementine and almond. Mmmm! Claire said she would email me when there was some and on Wednesday – bleep!

Next morning my mum and I went to try these delicious sounding cakes. And boy did they live up to how good they sounded!! The chocolate macadamia was creamy and gooey with a slightly crisp top – Almost like a brownie. The clementine and almond were light and fluffy with the little kick of clementine.

I highly recommend that if you are looking for gluten-free, you go here. The cakes are kept in their own little presentation cases, so it is very little to no chance of cross contamination!

You can find Wee Guy’s at 51 Cochrane Street (0141 552 5338) just in the corner of George’s Square. I’d recommend calling ahead just to check they have gluten-free cake in 🙂
