Banana Bread (Gluten-free)

Banana Bread and Banana Muffins

Just another go at this type of recipe.  This one, of course, does not have carob in it,  but is the classic banana bread we like to make when the bananas have gone brown in the bowl and no-one's touching them with a barge pole.  What a luxury!!  Here in Australia,  we've had a banana shortage for a year,  it's great to see them at a more reasonable price.

This recipe is my sort of own,  with inspiration drawn from several places.   I just googled 'gluten-free banana bread'.  Maybe that's how you found this recipe???  (Okay,  that excited me just a bit.)   The loaf at the back is Kerten's Kitchen's Rice bread which we made every day and all these went into the oven together.

  • 3 large Bananas*
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1 whole tinned Pear
  • 180g Plain all-purpose gluten-free flour (I've got FG Roberts,  from the supermarket)
  • 165g Buckwheat flour
  • 1 tsp Sodi Bic
  • 230g Sugar
  • 1/4 tsp Cinnamon** (optional)
  • Place Bananas, Eggs and Pear into Thermomix and combine on Speed 6 for 6 Seconds
  • In separate bowl, combine Plain and Buckwheat Flours, Sodi Bic, Sugar and Cinnamon and give a stir with a fork or whisk to combine well and break up that plain flour
  • With MC out, stir wet ingredients on Speed 2 while you add the dry ingredients through the lid.  Gradually increase speed until you get a batter. (I got up to Speed 6)
  • Pour into greased loaf tin(s) and/or lined muffin tray
  • You could do 2 loaves.  Today I made 1 loaf and 10 large muffins.  
  • Bake in oven 180ºC about 25-30 minutes.
*Moderate Amines
** Very high Salicylates
Verdict:  Yummeh!  The boys have just been begging for more....  but I do have to save some for later and the rest of the family.

Tweeks:  No tweeks...  this is delish!!!!


  1. Any replacements for buckwheat flour? Ps, loving your site, it's a lifesaver!

    1. Hi, I'm glad you like the recipes on Real Meals. I'm sorry, I haven't cooked this with any other gf flours, so it might be a matter of your own experimentation. I hope you've also discovered the huge range of other FAILSAFE recipes blogs out there, you might find another gf banana bread recipe. frillypants x

Sandra's No-Tomato Sauce

I have been using this all over the place...  and a bit like the Deli Chicken,  it has helped save Failsafe cooking all over again.  People on the facebook Failsafe pages are talking about it,  it has been translated into Thermomix-ese on the "Something From Nothing" page and here's mine.

Oh,  but first,  here's --->  Sandra's original.

Ingredients :

1 tin Red Kidney Beans, drained and rinsed150g Pear, about 2 large halves1 teaspoon Citric Acid1/4 cup (50g) Brown Sugar1 teaspoon Salt2 medium Carrots*, peeled and roughly chopped 1 stick Celery, roughly chopped4 Spring onions roughly chopped3-4 cloves of garlic1/2 cup WaterMethod:
Add all ingredients, except water, to TMX and pulverise on Speed 8 for about 5-8 secondsAdd waterWith MC in, cook for 25minutes,  Speed 3,  100ºC Purée by gradually increasing to Speed 9 for about 15 seconds*Moderate Salicylates

Verdict:  When I first tasted this I thought....    >.<  ewwww!...  but then I remembered I'd just ta…

Real Deli Chicken

The internet community is amazing, isn't it?  I have been a part of special interest forums (infertility, breastfeeding, homebirth, parenting, Thermomix, Failsafe diet) and I love that there's always someone out there with the information you need.  This recipe is exactly that.  On the 'Beyond Failsafe - Biomedical Treatment for Food Intolerances' facebook group, one person asked for some 'chicken-y school lunch ideas'.  Along came Meredith H. with her very simple answer.  She soaks chicken in brine,  poaches it...  and as easy as that you have a very commercial-tasting 'Deli Chicken' with no cruddy ingredients what-so-ever.  Her kids call it 'white bacon'...  we played around with 'chacon', 'bicken'...  and the winner is Real Deli Chicken.

Yorkshire Pudding

Mr frillipants' mum gave me this recipe, which really is the easiest-peasiest thing ever.

I am in the habit of making this with most roasts now, whether it's red or white meats, and it tastes so yummy with the meat and roasted veggies.  The recipe that I have says cooking time is 40-50 minutes,  which is seriously wrong. No idea where they got that? What I normally do is, when I have taken the cooked meat out of the oven to rest, and the veggies are still cooking, I put my 12-hole muffin tray in to start heating up.  I've already put a tiny dribble of a failsafe oil into each cup.  After a few minutes, I take the hot muffin tray out and, working very quickly, I pour the batter into each cup to about 1/3 full.  This will fill all 12 cups, giving the frillipantii 2 each... because we're greedy-gubbinses when it comes to Yorkshire Puddingses.
