Steamed Gluten Free Whole Grain Peanut Butter Banana Bread

I am so not creative when it comes to naming my creations. I just name it how it is. And, this is a steamed banana bread. It also has peanut butter in it! I posted this picture on instagram a few days ago. @hevilhelen

Doesn’t it look delicious? I know that it looks a little weird. But, it is steamed!

I steamed this bread a couple days ago and it is so good! The bread is dense, I have to warn you. I know some people like it fluffy. However, I love dense banana bread. I guess I am just weird like that. Anyway, the only flour used is brown rice flour. It makes this bread whole grain! It is also vegan. Maybe  I should add that to the name too!

Here’s the recipe.

Ingredients

  • 2 large ripe bananas, mashed
  • 2 cups brown rice flour
  • 2/3 cup soymilk
  • 3/4 cup sugar (can use less if wanted)
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • sprinkle of salt

Directions

  1. “Cream” the peanut butter and the sugar together.
  2. Mix in the bananas and milk.
  3. In another bowl, sift together the flour, salt, and baking powder
  4. Pour the dry ingredients into the banana mixture. Stir until just combined. Pour into bread pan.
  5. Steam for 40 to 50 minutes. *
  6. Enjoy.
*There are different ways you can steam this. I did it the old fashioned way. I filled a wok with water and heated it until it boiled. I placed the pan onto a thing that can separate it from the water and let it steam. The only problem is that you have to watch the water, since it can boil off.
In other news, I cannot wait for today’s Switched At Birth episode. It is the only show I watch besides the old classics: Reba and Full House. Anyway, Switched At Birth is a great show and I love how it reaches out to the deaf community! Sometimes, I feel that there are groups of people that don’t get as much attention they should get. I also love the story line and it makes me want to learn sign language.
Anyway, I guess that is it. I hope good things happen in today’s episode and I hope you guys enjoy the bread!
Have you tried steaming foods that are normally baked?
Are you for Emmett, Tank, or Ty?
-I think Bay should stick with Tank.  
Who do you think Daphne should choose?
