“My son has celiac disease. I have slowly experimented with his favorite recipes to create gluten-free versions that are also yummy enough for the non-celiacs to enjoy. This banana bread is extremely close to the original. Everyone gobbles it up, despite the pecans, which I add for a little extra nutrition.”
