Banana Nut Bread with Orange Glaze (Gluten Free)

Ingredients

3/4 cup butter, softened
1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
2 cups organic or coconut sugar
2 eggs
4 bananas
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
3 cups gluten free all purpose flour (I use flour from Bob’s Red Mill)
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups chopped pecans, divided

Orange Glaze
Zest of one half orange
Juice of a half orange
1/2 cup of honey

Preparation

1. In a large bowl cream with a mixer the butter, cream cheese and sugar until creamy and fluffy.
2. Add eggs one at a time. Beat in bananas and vanilla.
3. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt, and add gradually to the creamy mixture. Fold in one cup pecans.
4. Transfer to two greased 9-in. x 5-in. loaf pans. Sprinkle with remaining pecans.
5. Bake at 350 F for 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
6. In a small bowl whisk together orange zest, juice and honey. Drizzle over loaves after cooling the loaves for 10 minutes. I like to double the orange glaze and drizzle some over each piece served.

Enjoy!
