    A Difference of Opinion

    It is often that Jon and I have a difference on opinion.  Things like homework, TV, friends, bedtime, eating veggies.  It is not often that we have a difference of opinion on gluten-free food, baked goods, to be more specific.  The other day I made some Baked Banana Donuts.  I based the recipe on one I found here.  Obviously I had to make some changes to make the recipe gluten-free.  The changes I made were:

     

    Changes

    1/2 tsp Xanthan

    3/4 tsp Guar Gum

    2 1/4 cup Bette’s Four Flour Blend

    Coconut (shredded) to tops for baking (should have been added towards the end)

     

    What I noticed……a little dry.  Not much oil in the recipe.  Maybe some applesauce, like 1/4 cup for moistness.  I never made the frosting due the the coconut I put on part of the donuts.  Maybe frosting would have helped with the dryness?  Now, Jon absolutely loved them.  He didn’t say a word about them being dry!  LOL!  So, maybe a recipe to play around with and add either more oil or some applesauce or even pumpkin to moisten it up.

    As listed in the original recipe, they do call for frosting.  I just opted not to do it.  Guess I should listen next time, huh?  LOL!
