  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan and line it with parchment paper, leaving an overhang on the sides to easily lift the banana bread out after baking.

  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the gluten-free all-purpose flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg (if using).

  3. In another bowl, combine the mashed bananas, melted butter, granulated sugar, and light brown sugar. Mix until well combined.

  4. Add the eggs and vanilla extract to the banana mixture and stir until smooth.

  5. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.

  6. Fold in the chopped walnuts.

  7. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and smooth the top with a spatula.

  8. Bake for 60-65 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean or with just a few moist crumbs.

  9. Remove the banana bread from the oven and allow it to cool in the pan for 15 minutes. Then, use the parchment paper to lift the bread out of the pan and transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely.

  10. Slice and enjoy your Gluten-Free Banana Bread with Walnuts!
