Gluten Free Banana Bread_No Added Sugar Recipe

Eating gluten free is tough enough, however, having the herbalist tell me I really needed to give up sugar was even harder.  My gluten free banana bread is seriously delicious and contains no gluten. Start reading labels, there is a lot of sugar added to gluten free foods; therefore, I tried using cane sugar or raw sugar and now no sugar added.

According to Dr Axe; "Pineapple is a delicious tasting, nutrient-dense tropical fruit that provides a ton of health benefits, yet it’s still low in overall calories. It is used widely around the world as a natural remedy to treat everything from indigestion to being used as a natural allergy cure."

Hearing Dr Axe on Facebook, I decided to try pineapple in place of the sugar. My honest opinion; it is good, however, the texture of this banana bread verses a sugary banana bread, is a lot different. It was looser, even though the batter itself was quite creamy and a normal texture. Therefore next time I might do 1/2 crushed pineapple and 1/2 cane sugar. 

I do have family members with even a tougher diets than mine, where no sugar desserts are required or no desserts can be consumed, therefore; this weekend I will take and share.
